National Early Detection Screening (NEDS) of the Impact of the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic on Sleep
The current novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has raised many questions and concerns, some of which impact on sleep. Given the importance of healthy sleep for immune function and well-being, the British Sleep Society is interested in the early detection of sleep-related problems resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Mental health, stress, anxiety and lifestyle changes during the lockdown may impact on sleep, even in subjects that were not infected. In addition, there might be an unknown direct impact on sleep in subjects who have had the infection.
We would be grateful if you took the time to fill in this questionnaire and consider distributing it to distribute this to parties who may have an interest in sleep. The results will be used to inform sleep services to support patients in the months to come and establish an early monitoring of potentially newly occurring conditions.

The survey should take you about 10minutes to complete.
