For Sleep GPs
Are you a GP Special Interest – a Gypsy wanting to learn more about SleepGP
SleepGP is a comprehensive, holistic service for the diagnosis and management of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), at a primary care level.
The SleepGP Headquarters is located in Coolangatta, Queensland – providing training, support and logistics to SleepGP clinics around Australia and New Zealand.
Our program is at the front line of sleep and snoring management and aims to increase the effectiveness of care. Every patient is different and thus deserves individualised attention and treatment, whilst taking into account their existing medical conditions.
Our Primary Care Doctors are up-skilled to undertake a comprehensive examination process, resulting in the provision of customised treatment plans which incorporate the management of associated co-morbidities. Our SleepGP Doctors and their clinics are at the centre of patient care.
Patients are not forgotten, but instead are followed up by their local SleepGP clinic, in conjunction with their regular GP. This level of care ensures the provision of ongoing support and management.
SleepGP aims to deliver lasting results that can provide dramatic improvements to a patients’ quality of sleep and in turn, their quality of life through addressing the source of their OSA.

Once the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is made, treatment should be initiated immediately. The main goal of treatment is to improve the patients quality of life by eliminating their daytime fatigue.
CPAP and APAP machines are considered to be the “gold standard” of treatment for OSA sufferers, however there are other options available if you are found to be non-compliant. Positional devices, nasal dilators and Mandibular Advancement Splints (MAS) are all proven methods of treating OSA. Your doctor will help you to identify what might be the best fit for you.
