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.

Very good dentist

Holly Dental Practice

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

I cannot thank the team at Holly Dental enough for all their efforts in completely transforming my smile. For someone who faced anxiety and avoided visiting a dentist for years, it’s safe to say I do not feel the same way any longer (the chat with Nadine at the initial consultation really helped!) I looked forward to my appointments with Andy and the team who are professional yet so friendly and welcoming. I feel so much more confident about my smile and can not recommend the practice enough :)

After not going to a dentist for about seven years I developed tooth ache and i needed urgent treatment i decided to use Holly Dental Prictice after seeing a video on YouTube that put my mind at rest. I rang for an emergency appointment early in the morning and i was seen that same afternoon by dentist Albert Muntane and dental nurse Nadine and i have never looked back. All the staff at the practice are very caring, emmaculate and totally professional i would recommend them to everyone give them a try you won’t regret it they are brilliant

Briarwood Medical Centre

514 Blackpool Rd, Preston PR2 1HY, UK – 01772 280380

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

Lytham Road Surgery

2A Lytham Rd, Fulwood, Preston PR2 8JB, UK – 01772 716033

I have recently joined the surgery and honestly can't say enough about the level of service I have received. The staff on reception although obviously very busy and put under immense pressure each day are friendly,informative and always willing to help. (Service with a smile) The waiting times have always seemed minimal whenever I have turned up for an appointment which is always helpful. I can honestly say the staff at this surgery from reception right through to the doctors act with the utmost professionalism and kindness and are eager to help with any issue.

Surgery was quick, effective and uses automated machine for height, blood pressure and weight, very effective.

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

I've just spent two weeks (recovering from an operation) on Ward 12. The nurses & staff were EXEMPLARY, every one of them. I can't name all of them, but here are just a few, in no particular order: Becky, Charlie (correct spelling, I hope (keep on smiling)), James, Sally, Julie, Mikey, Stacey, Robin, Chandra, Brendan, Maurine, and all the night staff, thank you all. Special thanks to Hayley (=, Sara and Jess. If your name doesn't appear here, I'm truly sorry. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU ALL. I received first rate treatment, care and service, throughout my stay. Now, let the naysayers argue with that.

My Nana lives in Preston and unfortunately had a mini stroke. My Mum and I attended her appointment in the Day treatment Clinic our nurse was called Bernie. She was an absolute star and was so helpful and reassured us along the way. We was all well looked after and lunch was supplied because we had to stay most of the day. I couldnt praise the staff and Doctor enough. My Nana was sent home with medication so were really pleased.

Preston Household Recycling Centre

Preston PR2 3ZS, UK

Easy to get in and clear to see whats needed to go where. If unsure the staff are very helpful

One of the friendliest recycling centres I've ever visited. All the staff were so friendly pointing out the right bins for each item. They even helped with unpacking a car full of waste. Top notch!

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.
