Shiela Graysmark

Advanced Nurse Practitioner / Nurse Manager

RGN DipPP BSc (Hons) Nurse Practitioner, Independent Nurse Prescriber 

I qualified as a registered nurse in 1982. After working in local hospitals and on the community I started work as a practice nurse at Cuckfield Medical  Practice 20 years ago. Since completing my  Advanced Nurse Practitioner degree and Nurse Prescriber qualifications  ten years ago I have worked as a Nurse Practitioner running surgeries alongside the GPs.  My role includes seeing patients for any acute conditions for investigation, referral and diagnosis. I also see patients for management of chronic disease. I have a special interest in patients with Diabetes.

I am the manager of the nursing team, co-ordinating nursing services within the practice.


Our team of qualified Nurses, which comprises a Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurses, Health Visitor and Midwife, offer a wide range of skills to help you deal with every aspect of physical and mental health, both in the surgery and out in the community.

Advanced Practice Nurse

RGN, BA (Hons) Health Studies, PGCHSE 

I trained at The London Hospital qualifying in 1978.  Throughout my nursing career I have worked in many different areas of nursing including medical/surgical nursing, Intensive and Coronary Care, I also worked at the Queen Victoria Hospital for four years as an Infection Control Nurse.

I have worked for the practice for the Practice since 2009 and my work with patients is very varied.  I see patients with chronic diseases such as Asthma, Diabetes and COPD for ongoing management as well as acutely ill patients who need to be seen urgently the same day.  I also conduct a telephone triage service on Mondays and Fridays.  I am a Nurse Prescriber.  I have a special interest in patients with Dementia.

I am the Infection Control Lead for the surgery and am happy to discuss any concerns our patients may have in relation to cleanliness and hygiene matters within the practice
