Insomnia affects one in ten adults. Poor sleep has a negative impact on physical and mental health, performance and safety. Sleepio is a digital programme scientifically proven to help overcome poor sleep, based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and backed by extensive gold standard research evidence and a specific evidence summary from NICE. In October 2018 Innovate UK funded a project providing free direct online access to Sleepio to all 2.7 million adults living, working or studying in the Thames Valley (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire). This was the first large-scale NHS rollout of direct access digital medicine, allowing people to access the programme whenever is most convenient for them – without needing a GP referral or prescription. In March 2020 free access to Sleepio was extended to all NHS staff in England as part of a package of health and wellbeing support for key workers.
