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!

Dental Surgeries

Pearl Fine Dental Care

1B, Carbery Row, Southbourne Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3QR, UK – 01202 421999

My fiance had a surgical extraction done here. The practise was extremely attentive, and flexible with scheduling the appointments. She had some pain following the procedure and the dentist personally called her to discuss the issue. Very impressed. Would highly recommend!

I love my dental implants! They really do look and feel like my real teeth, except even better! I was nervous about the dental work, but Dr. Gorjifar was calming and worked with me to overcome my fears. He spent time educating me about the implant surgery and what I could expect and didn't pressure me to make a decision on the spot. The staff were kind and considerate, meeting my needs all along the way. If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the way to go and Pearl Fine Dental Care is a great choice for having them done!

Crescent Dental Practice

1-3 The Crescent, Bournemouth BH1 4EX, UK – 01202 392202

They have always been very good for me, very good service and care.

Avon Dental Practice

Brilliant Dental Practice I have no complaints whatsoever!

BEATE weineit very good dentist.. Very patient and very experienced. Thank you beate

Beaufort Road Surgery

21 Beaufort Rd, Bournemouth BH6 5AJ, UK – 01202 433081

Love this surgery, receptionists and doctors are all lovely. Don't have a bad thing to say. Wonderful. Dr Mitchell is the best doctor I've ever had!

Reception and clinical staff always polite and helpful. I've been a patient at the surgery for 13 years and have never had any issues with the service or the staff - only positive things to say.

Providence Practice

12 Walpole Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HA, UK – 01202 395195

I don't get what some of the critics here are complaining about - it wasn't that terrible. And at least they do do bookings. Although I was a little concern when they asked if I was sexually active. For a minute, I thought the nurse was coming on to me! Also, I felt the examination was only half done - there might have been other medical issues that they are supposed to ask. But it was still a decent and professional place.

Why does it take so long to get an appointmnent as 3 weeks is a bit of a joke when ill to be expected to wait to see your own doctor.

Crescent Surgery

68 Palmerston Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HT, UK – 01202 393755

OK, I have been down here a couple of times, but this rude receptionist that you all spoke about doesn't seem to work there anymore. Clearly, she must have been sacked for her behaviour. The services are good. The problem is that you need a prescription for skin cream and that would be booking an appointment - and I feel it just wastes the doctors and nurses time.

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.

My partner has just had a hip replacement. From admission to discharge totally professional,courteous and caring. Well Done. looking forward to Hip replacement 2( the return).

Lovely staff, they put a great deal of care and attention so that everything is fine. Really appreciative of what they are doing!

Christchurch Hospital

Fairmile Rd, Christchurch BH23 2JX, UK – 01202 303626

Nice hospital. Christchurch Hospital was a very large facility, but, most has been converted to flats. The remaining section is more for specialist appointments.

It is a hospital so it gets 5 stars. Hospitals are cool.

Kings Park Hospital

Gloucester Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JF, UK – 01202 303757

Thought they were excellent

I have to counter the negative comment. I am not going to say mental health services are great in this country (what-so-ever). All the cuts and society not rating mental health issues etc.. But I feel the people at CMHT Kings Park (with what they have) really do there best and i am not sure I would be here without them. I have the best psychiatrist ever (Dr Schrader) and had some great care workers that all do care..

A church which is welcoming and full of happiness. Need to play more traditional hymns. Sermons interesting and thought provoking. If you love the Lord he will love you for eternity.

Woodbury Avenue is one of the sites where Lansdowne Church meet. There's a great family vibe here.

Christchurch Baptist Church

49 Bargates, Christchurch BH23 1QT, UK – 01202 487442

As one of a team, on the sound desk, the opportunities to meet the needs of our growing congregation is challenging. From the very young to the more senior members and visitors (note the politically correct descriptions!), we invite suggestions, as well as much needed assistance! We are enjoying a time of change as God continues to shape the gifts we all have to offer. It might be called a "lively" church because many in the congregation are realising that there is more to "life" ...... I think its a great church.... but of course I am biased!

Met Chris at an Alpha meeting he was presenting at. It really gets you to think about what it's all about. Thanks

The Neptune Harvester

Beach House, Undercliff Rd, Bournemouth BH5 1BN, UK – 01202 399987

A very warm day so the seafront was very busy. The staff squeezed us in very quickly for a lovely half chicken. Great staff and hot food prepared quite quickly considering just how busy the restaurant was. It is a nice place to visit. Car parking is above the restaurant on the cliff top.

Beautiful setting right on the beach. The food is good value for money and the service is friendly. My wife loves the buffet style salads. There is pay parking half way up the cliff above the restaurant and free street parking on the cliff top. It is always nice to have a walk down the pier after a meal.

St Saviour's Pre School

32 Colemore Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6RZ, UK – 07719 403482

The team that run this PreSchool are amazing. They supported my little one with settling in and throughout his preschool journey. They allowed him to be an individual and celebrated his differences. The team is very caring, enthusiastic and professional. The team remained the same for the 2 years we were there, creating a safe and familiar environment for little ones to grown. There was a real team atmosphere and you felt like they really cared about your child.

This Pre-school is amazing, the staff are so warm and caring and they really do care about all the children. You feel like a person, not just a number. A real family environment. My little boy loves it there and has really blossomed.
