Probably got prescription withdrawal syndrome due to not seeing patients face to face.

The best Doctor I have ever had the surgery was extremely lucky to have had such a kind caring Doctor when my mum was in her end of life stage he was amazing I could not have got through such a tough time I hope he now gets the support he needs he clearly was under so much pressure but still put us first we miss you .

Dr Sandles is definitely the best doctor I have ever dealt with for both myself and my children! He was able to do a minor op for myself and is so amazing with children making both my little girls feel so comfortable and happy in an environment they felt so uncomfortable in! He will be missed and I really hope one day he can return and be apart of the surgery again!

Dr Sandals was the only pro-active doctor in the lousy Church Langley surgery. He cured my addiction to codeine. I was devastated when I heard he had been 'moved on.'

Always had fantastic experience with Dr sandles and he was always so prompt with pt care and always on top of everything. He was also amazing with children and even post natal care. Was the best doctor that doctors surgery had ever seen no one has come close. Quite possibly because they just don't care like he did .

The most amazing doctor, compassionate, caring and totally in tune with his patients' needs. Very much missed

The best doctor who actually ‘cared’ about his patients. He really was and still is an amazing doctor. Everyone can make a mistake. We are all human at the end of the day.

The best, most caring doctor myself and my family have seen. Always had time for you in and out of the practice. Was devastated when he 'disappeared' from Church Langley Medical Practice. If possible we would stay as his patients wherever he practiced.

2021-12-06 09:32:17

One of the best doctors down there no one any good ever stays something not right

2021-12-06 10:17:59

So very sorry to see this story. I have a high regard for Dr Sandles and he always struck me as being compassionate and concerned for his patients.

2021-12-06 11:56:56

Dr Sandles was the best doctor. He saved my sons life. I will be eternally grateful to him.

Church Langley medical practice must be about the worst in Harlow, the service with out Dr Sandals is absolutely appalling. Dr Sandals is a doctor that cared about his patients and as such due his popularity he probably had by far the biggest workload, this no doubt led to his actions. For the benefit of Harlow people he needs to be reinstated with immediate effect.

Might part of the problem be a lack of support for GPs Wellbeing and mental health? It seems the doctor was giving his patients the kind of excellent treatment and support he perhaps wasn't getting. Church Langley does seem to have a history of losing it's best doctors and is very low on nhs ranking. The plight of Dr Sandals and burn out of many health professionals may indicate a deeper flaw in the West Essex Health Trust.. All of these issues need to be the subject of a swift in depth review and actions.

Dr. Sandles was an amazing compassionate and caring Doctor I am sure there was a reason for this, he obviously hasn't received the compassion and care that he has given to his patients over the years. One in a million God bless you

He was a amazing Doctor! He supported me so much when I was caring for someone with deep depression and who had just had a nervous breakdown. Could not ha e got through it all without him. He also supported the person I was caring for. He went out of his way to listen just listen and help. If you read this Doctor Sandles thank you so much. Life is full of highs and lows. You may think k this a low but everything happens for a reason. Wishing you all the best you saved someone’s life through your care and understanding thank you Tanya King x

Dr Sandles provided excellent care and clinical interventions to my husband who has a range of complex needs. He has always been approachable compassionate and professional in a surgery that generally, and rather sadly, functions in a less than optimum manner. In these dreadful hard pressed medical times this Dr needs to be given some admin support and catch up time and be back at work rather than languishing in some limbo.

So sad that a fantastic doctor who puts his own mental health under pressure by trying to cope with the demands of treating so many patients, is prosecuted in this way. Where is the support for those who care for us. Circumstances should be taken into consideration, and leniency shown.

So sad, God knows what he must have been going through, Sandles was the best doctor I have ever seen, so caring and of great knowledge when it comes to patient care. He looked after his patients so well and diligently. Cl has not been the same without him. In this dreadful hard pressurized medical times, there is no support for the medical doctors that look after thousands of patients. Who looks after the doctors. I wish him the best and I pray he gets the help and support that he truly surely deserve

Brilliant doctor, actually gave a damn about patients unlike most doctors, obviously he was struggling and couldn't get the support from work that he needed. Always busy running from one patient to another but always had time to listen to my worries about my childrens asthma. Wish he was still there, the doctors that are left are awful 😳

A Fantasdtic Doctor. He was the only doctor who eally listen ed to me and helped me. I was devistated when he was removed from the Chrch Langley Medical Practice. This practice has never been the same, since.

2022-04-08 06:16:23

Dr Sandles was, without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute best doctor I’ve ever had. He helped me at one of my lowest points in my life and I owe everything to him. I only wish someone could have seen how much he needed help as much as he helped others. Church Langley Medical Practice has lost a truly remarkable doctor.

Dr Nathan Sandals changed my life. I was hopelessly addicted to hard drugs, Dr Sandals showed me the way forward and out of the mess I had got myself in. When I met him for the first time I expected a 5 minute fly-by appointment. He spent 45 minutes with me and my wife sparing no detail about how achievable recovery was. I have been drug free since that first appointment with him, and I will forever be in his debt. I will forever be in his debt.
