Do I need a referral from my Family Doctor?       

A referral from your General Practitioner or Specialist is required for Type 1 and 2 studies. You can download our referral form when you click on either the Type 1 or 2 study boxes below.

Type 3 studies do not require a referral and can be ordered directly, without seeing a doctor.

How do I know whether I have booked the appropriate sleep study for myself?

Once you have ordered a sleep study below, you will be contacted by one of our Consultant who will assess your Medicare eligibility (if required) and book a suitable date and time with you.

What if I don’t know which sleep study type to pick?

That’s ok. Our Consultants are here to help. Call us on 1300 76 29 39 and a Consultant will talk to you about your requirements, and help you determine which sleep study will suit you best.

Alternatively, your family doctor will be able to assist you also.

How independent and reliable are my sleep study results?

The CPAP Clinic facilitates sleep study bookings (Type 1, 2 and 3) on behalf of Centurion Healthcare. All sleep studies are reported by independent sleep specialists who are not affiliated with The CPAP Clinic.

Centurion Healthcare has a well-regarded physician team that includes Respiratory Heads of Departments at major public hospitals and former President and Secretary of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand.
