You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Dental Surgeries

mydentist, Towngate, Preston

169 Towngate, Leyland PR25 2TE, UK – 01772 432337

So far so good. Zoe and the dental nurse were fabulous. Very reassuring as im terrified !!! Wish i had gone much sooner !! Highly recommend.

would not recommend unless you have no choice. Can not say the clinic is too bad but I had to wait for ages from appointment to another appointment, The phone had never been picked up, and I had to visit the clinic myself to arrange it, The reception staff is not well trained at all. BUT dentist (lady from EU) was very professional (I can compare) and treatment I received was of a good standard.

Leyland Surgery

Westfields, West Paddock, Leyland PR25 1HR, UK – 01772 520120

I want to especially thankyou a lady called Linda from the surgery. I had a recent drop in medication, which has caused me a very low mood, with worrying thoughts, i rang other nhs organisations with help. I got passed around through different avenues. With them encouraging me AGAIN to ring my GP surgery. My call was answered by a lady called Linda, who made me feel so understood today, such a calming understanding receptionists, these receptionists must put up with alot and i wanted to share how they should also be praised. There are people worse of than me and today i had a wobble, she directrd me accordingly and got me g.p advice of which she helped me also smile. With my mood being so severe minutes before. She has helped me like she hasnt known today. Thankyou. Others arent as lucky as me, there conditions are worse NO other organisation that id rang from mental health services, returned my calls with messages being left of my state 25 hours prior, or helped AT ALL. Im just glad that today it was me that called. And not one of many mental health suffers who may have needed way more drastic help.
