Banks

Barclays Bank

38 Fishergate, Preston PR1 2AD, UK – 0345 734 5345

Used the bank last week and they have revamped the inside with self service machines. Had a large amount of cheques I needed to cash, and with the help of one of the staff members I used the machine and found it useful and efficient. I highly recommend the bank and its friendly staff

Always had excellent service from the staff here and the interior layout is a doddle to navigate

Excellent service, the staff are always very polite and helpful.

Yorkshire Building Society

48A Fishergate, Preston PR1 8BH, UK – 01772 507531

Local Chambers of Commerce for PR2 8AA with contact details and location maps. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out.
Lancashire County Scientific Services

Pedders Way, Preston PR2 2TX, UK – 01772 721660

UKAS accredited, friendly staff, quick turnaround on samples.

Lancashire Archives

Lancashire Record Office, Bow Lane, Preston PR1 2RE, UK – 01772 533039

Very quick & helpful

West View Leisure Centre

West View, Preston PR1 5EP, UK – 01772 796788

To the most part the facilities here are excellent however some slight improvements are needed. One of the standout features here is their climbing wall this is certainly impressive from what I have seen and is ideal for kids and adults alike. They also offer stage one and stage two gymnastics here which feed into Preston City Gymnastics club at a later stage. The coaches here work hard and receive a lot of support and input from Preston City to really build on those early foundation stages in gymnastics.

Been going to Tuesday morning yoga for 15years, love the class and all the people who attend it BUT the studio that it's held in is cold -- even in summer. There are no windows, so the sun never warms the room. In winter it is nothing short of freezing. We have continually asked for the heating to be turned on when the previous class finishes --- nobody ever does it. Year after year this has been going on and nobody cares enough about their customers to do it. Today it was freezing in there totally fed up with this.

Dental Surgeries

Ringway Dental Centre

Ringway House, Percy St, Preston PR1 3HQ, UK – 01772 777800

Excellent treatment, it is the best. Very happy with the results. Highly qualified.

Saw them for an emergency; staff are very friendly and the service was the best I have experienced

UCLan Dental Clinic Ltd

Adelphi St, Preston PR1 2HE, UK – 01772 896300

Good treatments, very nice staff

Really nice staff, great modern facilities and affordable for students 😃

Holly Dental Practice

11 Moor Park Ave, Preston PR1 6AS, UK – 01772 561748

After having spent years being frightened of the dentist, meeting Andy Holly several years ago and having treatment with him, I am no longer afraid of visiting the dentist. He takes his time and explains each treatment clearly, every step of the way. I cannot praise this dental practice enough and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Andy and his team.

Been terrified of the dentist for years. Albert was very nice and took as long as I needed. Very expensive but you pay for what you get these days so it was well worth it

Doclands Medical Centre

Blanche St, Preston PR2 2RL, UK – 01772 723222

we were with doclands for over 6 years and they were always helpful and considerate all the doctors were very good thankyou.

Been with them 43 years with no complaints

Issa Medical Centre

73 St Gregory Rd, Preston PR1 6YA, UK – 01772 798122

Appointments go like hot cakes and the wait is long. The doctors can't be faulted and as for the receptionist id say they can have their moments I've had had helpful and rude telephone manners.

Fishergate Hill Surgery

50 Fishergate Hill, Preston PR1 8DN, UK – 01772 254484

Doctors here are very good and understand a wide range of problems (including mental illnesses) although, receptionist are rude and think they know when you do and don't need to see a doctor, called up about my mental health a few times and they were extremely rude to me saying I didn't need to see a doctor. From working in customer services, I know how you're supposed to speak to clients and patients, this is not the way.

like this surgery, docs are good, took me a bit to fined a doc who understands more about metal illness than others. very well knowledgeable about all different services est.. doc makes me feel like I am not wasting there time, that its just as important as a physical illness.

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.

Royal Preston Hospital

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

They do try the're best but nhs as a whole is over run. Mixed experience over the years not the best place if you old or depended in my opinion.

Sent to Chief Exec I wish to draw your attention to the excellent care I am receiving from your medical staff at Lancaster Dermatology Clinic, Preston Ward4 and Chorley Surgical Unit. I was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma on my arm. This was investigated by a further biopsy & the site was excised. In an operation the site was more deeply excised and the sentinel lymph gland in my arm was removed. I later developed four swollen lymph glands which a biopsy with ultrasound determined had abnormal cells. These glands were removed last Monday. All the medical staff who looked after and treated me were marvellous. I had prompt Ultrasound, MRI & CT scans. The surgeon was initially Mr Rimouche and then Mr Ekwobi. Both were wonderful. Mr Ekwobi was both gentle & diligent, and he has told me he will see me any Tuesday at Lancaster if I feel the need.The dermatology Clinic nurses at Lancaster were very supportive. I must highlight Claire Doherty at Chorley who reassured me and wrote me the most comprehensive letter summarising my condition. She is a star. All treatment was really prompt.I am very grateful for that. Many thanks to the Lancashire NHS. N.B. To be balanced, I have to say some administrative aspects could have been better. e.g. Loss of my files on the day of an operation and my having to ask the staff if my test result notes shouldn’t be going with me in the ambulance from Preston to Chorley. My husband was also unable to locate me in Chorley. However these are minor aspects, & only mentioned as constructive feedback.

Fulwood Hall Hospital

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

First Trust Hospital

D'Urton Ln, Broughton, Preston PR3 5LD, UK – 01772 860884

I was skeptical after reading some bad reviews hence why I have written this because I don't think they are accurate (I never normally write reviews unless I really feel like it). All staff have been so welcoming and lovely to me. They make you feel at home staying over night! Dr sleiter is very caring and answers any questions. All very attentive. Thank you to everyone and highly recommended. X

I never normally write reviews on anything, but felt I really needed to share my experience at First Trust Hospital. I cannot praise this place enough my whole experience from start to finish was first class. I had breast enlargement surgery on Monday (22-2-16) and from the very first nurse who showed me to my own private room, meeting the doctor, meeting my anesthetist, seeing my surgeon (dr Bernard stleiter, who is amazing!) to the nurse who brought me back from surgery and looked after me during my stay they where all so attentive! I was very very nervous as I have never had surgery before but they reassured me they had the best team and made me feel so relaxed. Really I could not have been in a better place for my surgery. I was only a day case but I would have been happy if they told me I had to stay over night. Such a wonderful experience. Thank you so much to everyone at First Trust Preston. Lauren xxxx

A very straightforward online process with a follow up phone call to confirm time of collection. All paperwork was dealt with effectively once collection company arrived. I would have given 5 stars if the correct house number had been given to driver of collection vehicle.

Very efficient, one phone call and it's done including sorting the V5 on collection.

Preston Household Recycling Centre

Quick in and out every time and the staff help when they can.

Recycling for a good cause, what more do you need for a 5*?!

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Fulwood

Tang Restaurant

241 Fylde Rd, Preston PR2 2NH, UK – 01772 729545

Preston has a pretty large Chinese student population, and you could do far worse for recommendations than watching where they choose to eat. And from what I can see, they eat at Tang. I spent Chinese New Year here. The atmosphere was lively, the staff were friendly, and the food was the best Chinese I've had in a long time - quite possibly since Hong Kong. And you can order to take away, to boot. There are Karaoke rooms upstairs too. They're pretty good as Karaoke goes, but it's really not my thing. Perhaps I just wasn't drunk enough!

The only downside is they do not do desserts anymore. But the food is amazing and worth going. The staff are friendly and helpful also and always offer to pack your leftovers to take home. We have been a few times with our 4 year old.

Eastzeast

19 Church St, Preston PR1 3BQ, UK – 01772 200084

Nursery and Preschools

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.

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.
