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!

Royal Preston Hospital

Sharoe Green Lane North, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9HT, UK – 01772 716565

I have just been discharged following a second skin graft on my leg and I cannot express the gratitude to the management and staff on ward 4 (plastics) once again they have looked after me for the last 6 days making sure I was given the best care to allow my leg to heal and the skin graft to settle and give it a chance to heal properly, My consultant could not have made me more positive about the outcome of this operation and the one to one support him and his team have given me have been second to none. Thankyou to everyone involved in my care and I really hope that I will be able to come and thank you very soon and not have to come back as a patient again :)

Referred with urgent neurosurgery issue by my GP, initially Preston slow and denied knowledge of me! After being pushed by my GP due to worsening of my symptoms, got to see the consultant - consultant faultless. Then clerical had to book surgery - again had to be chased and pushed. Had the urgent surgery on 11 August - all medical staff are exceptional, doing a very difficult job with restricted resources and staff, I can't praise the staff enough. However, now 4 weeks post surgery - surgical follow up? No, no clinic appointments, admin/ clerical failing to respond to communications! How can a hospital bring people in for surgery and then fail to provide follow up appointments, lets just hope there are not any issues!! Fantastic medical staff let down by admin/ clerical support - not directly their fault, but a sign of the cuts and restrictions to service! However, it could be improved with consideration and communication. Please get your admin/ clerical sorted - and ensure follow ups are provided for in the scheduling of appointments.

Fulwood Hall Hospital

Midgery Ln, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9SZ, UK – 01772 704111

We booked at table here on the 15th March for a family meal of 8 for my mums birthday. The service, food and atmosphere were all amazing.

The staff were so polite and attentive. We took a birthday cake with us and the staff were so nice and brought it out at just the right time with no awkwardness. This is restaurant certainly is 5 star and we will definitely be making this the place for our family gatherings from now on, thank you for making our mums birthday so special and memorable x

Silk Route Indian Restaurant

Near Lidl, W Strand, Preston PR1 8UY, UK – 01772 378998

Quite a while since we last went but just as good as ever. Food is amazing, would highly recommend the chicken jalfong with mushroom rice, each mouthful gives a new flavour. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, very understated but service and welcome is second to none. A bit of an unusual location next to lidl but a hidden gem, we'll worth coming a little bit out of the town centre to find. Car parking right outside

Absolutely brilliant !! Our first visit to this delightful restaurant but it won't be our last delicious food and lovely attentive staff, try it for yourself you won't be disappointed five stars all round.

Nursery and Preschools

Poppy And Jack's Nursery

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

Fulwood Lodge, 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.
