Dental Surgeries

Centre for Dentistry

Flintoff Way, Inside Sainsbury's, Preston PR1 6PJ, UK – 01772 447962

My first time using a private practice and couldn't have wished for a better experience. Friendly staff and super dentist who talked me through every stage and made me relaxed. My only gripe would be the Reception area is really noisy due to the proximity of the sainsbury’s tills constantly ringing etc- how the staff cope with this all day is anyones guess- they have a perfectly good door which could be shut -but apparently this is practice policy ??? Surely a sign on the door that says OPEN would work just as well and allow patients and staff to have a simple conversation without the need to talk loudly. Other than that- great experience that has put my fears of the dentist to rest. Would have been 5 stars other than the noise.

very welcoming reception lady was very lovely and reassuring and the dentist guy was really nice and made me feel at ease and relaxed and explained everything he was going to do in a very polite manner he made u feel at ease and relaxed and he was very caring and nice for someone who dosent like dentists after past experiences i felt confotrabe and calm and i didn’t feel bad about my teeth best dentist i have been to

Lifestyle Dental and Implant Dentist

E, 284 Garstang Rd, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9RX, UK – 01772 717316

Great Dentist, Professional and honest Staff. Will definitely visit again and recommend to all.

I used to have severe pain in my gums it was very hard for me to even eat properly, i went for dental treatments to many dentists of the city but all went in vain. Then my friend recommended me Lifestyle Dental from where i got my implant done and i am actually satisfied and overwhelmed with the treatment.

Briarwood Medical Centre

Put a review on not so long ago with a complaint I had about the service I had recieved. Although it still stands that there are one or two doctors who I will continue to avoid, there a good few doctors who were disregarded in my last post. Really good doctors (and one of the Nurse Practitioners) who are fab at their jobs, so I will be putting a good word in for them :)

Drs are good

Healthcare Centre

The Surgery (formerly DR G A & Dr A Robb)

63-65 Garstang Rd, Preston PR1 1LB, UK – 01772 253554

Staff are ok I suppose. There's always one of them receptionist who think there a doctor,and telling (not giving) people that its only a cold and your not I'll enough. The doctors are good but I requested my own GP.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Pizza Express

14-15 Winckley Street, Town Centre, Preston PR1 2AA, UK – 01772 201580

Does what it says on the tin. Pizza, and other Italian favourites, done quickly and done well. In my experience you're pretty much guaranteed a decent pizza or pasta at Pizza Express. I'm only giving it three stars as that's all it does. There's not really any personality, it's all a bit flat and bland. The WH Smiths of dining. On every high Street and only really useful when you really need it. The rest of the time you walk on by.

Nice place, friendly staff. I had a pizza w the goat cheese, caramelised onions and spinach-very tasty! My husb had one with the pork- it was too oily for him.

Nursery and Preschools

Poppy And Jack's Nursery - Fulwood

22 Black Bull La, Fulwood, Preston PR2 3PX, UK – 01772 719689

I can not rate this nursery highly enough. We have had pleasant enough experience in nurseries with my eldest and for a short time with my second(interspersed with a few bad experiences too, hence the change), absolutely nothing compares to Hillcrest. My son has always been a happy, confident child but even he has come along in leaps and bounds since starting here, he is encouraged to express himself, to do as he pleases and learn new things - always under very competent and loving supervision. It amazes me how well they know each child and how individually they treat them, children always come first here! The outdoor areas cater for every age group and they are *always* out there, rain or shine. My son comes home with so many stories and has truly loved every minute here. I am so sad that we have to leave for him to join school but I am so thankful that we found this place, my worries considerably lessened as soon as he started here, a huge must for all parents! I could gush for hours but honestly just go and look, observe them for five minutes and see how every staff member is completely concentrating on the children and thoroughly enjoying their job.

I can't say enough good things about this wonderful nursery and its staff. Absolutely fantastic, in every way, shape and form. My son loves it and he has learnt so much. He has grown in confidence, self expression, communication and learnt so much through having fun. A***** He loves the outside area and the garden room and log cabin room. Staff are friendly, brilliant with the children and all round shinning examples of what a nursery should be like and run.

First Steps Nursery

1 Longsands Ln, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9PS, UK – 01772 792644

What a lovely nursery First Steps is. The staff are very caring and attentive and our cheekly little boy had great fun and was really well looked after for the 2 years he attended. He enjoyed his time there and really came out of his shell with new people. He thinks the world of First Steps.
