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!

Broadway Surgery

2 Broadway, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9TH, UK – 01772 645665

No complaints. Great staff

The surgery has responded positively and according to the requirements needed. They have a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. However at rush hours, there has not been enough seating and the waiting room is quite small supplying no drinks and refreshments!

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 brought my son to the Acute Medical Unit early in the morning. He had severe back and groin pains. The staff on that unit then on the EDU unit were all superb. We were treated with kindness dignity and humour. He had all sorts of tests including a scan. I cannot praise all the staff involved highly enough. Thank you

My mother admitted after serious fall and fractures, as on holiday away from London. Both medical and nursing care was superb. Such attention to detail and compassion in such difficult circumstances. We never once had to ask twice for support.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Fulwood

Pizza Hut Restaurants

Blackpool Road, Deepdale Retail Park, Preston PR1 6QY, UK – 01772 655688

Lovely staff ,a great pizza hut too visit after shopping at deepdale . loads of parking spaces just outside the door and it's just had a refit. Everything is freshly made and theirs also a salad bar ,all you can eat ,help yourself. The service was excellent from start too finish ,very helpful.

The place is fairly clean most of the time with exceptional toilets. The drink dispenser touch screen can become unresponsive because of how much grease it must collect throughout the day (I hope it's cleaned once the restaurant closes). Salad bar has a wide variety of foods to choose from, would definitely recommend the salsa. If the place is busy, you would be better off going somewhere else as it can take a while to get a seat and even when you do, the service will be painfully slow and the food can be rushed and the crowd can be noisy. However if the place is quiet, expect to have a really nice time.

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.
