About Me

Dr Angus Nisbet FRCP
Consultant Neurologist & Sleep Physician

My Background

I am 54 years of age and I have been a Consultant Neurologist in Sussex for over 18 years.

I was born and brought up in Bushey, Hertfordshire and went to School at Mill Hill School, North London.  I qualified as a doctor at Nottingham University in 1986.

I trained as junior doctor in General Medicine and Neurology in Nottingham, Manchester, Mansfield, Cardiff & London.

In 1997, I was appointed as an NHS Substantive Consultant Neurologist at The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre, Haywards Heath, a role I worked in for 10 years, before resigning to go independent.

My Current Role

In 2007, I became an Independent Consultant Neurologist, undertaking Neurology clinics in several NHS hospitals across Sussex and an NHS Sleep Neurology Service for 7 years at East Grinstead Sleep Disorders Centre. I have in-patient beds at Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre. 

I do two private clinics per week and advise the Insurance Industry on Neurology. I am also writing a book on consciousness.

Non-Medical Interests

I am married to a solicitor, and have 4 children. I am a keen glider pilot and also enjoy mountain walking, scuba diving, golf and squash and have a number of other interests including theology, philosophy and cosmology. I am currently writing a book on consciousness and the soul.
