Barclays Bank

Norfolk House, 19/20 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 1NG, UK – 0345 734 5345

A large and new looking branch. Why do we have 2 so close? Is it so they can justify their extortionate charges? My advice, bank anywhere else! Remember: they had a bank in south Africa, under the racist regime! Leopards and spots!

Well located and friendly staff

Dental Surgeries

MK Vasant MBE and Dental Associates

1210 London Rd, London SW16 4DN, UK – 020 8764 1424

Best Dentist in London. Strongly recommend to anyone for private treatment. Dr Manny Vasant is very friendly and caring. My last dentist was never as thorough. The whole team at the practice are warm and professional. The hygienist Ben is a wonderful man full of character. I now look forward to my appointments.

Excellent multi-disciplinary dentist with on site lab.

The Whitgift Dental Practice

70 Chatsworth Rd, Croydon CR0 1HB, UK – 020 8686 3954

As a nervous dental patient I really needed a practice that could handle my needs but also provide an excellent and honest service. Shahin, Julie, Abs, Lynda and the team certainly provide that in abundance. There's always a cheery welcome and a level of care that is rarely found. I cannot recommend Whitgift Dental highly enough, I almost (not really!) look forward to going to the dentist!

I like the informality of the surgery, everyone is on a first name terms. I'm a nervous patient and I'm made to feel at ease, it's not just an appointment there's a genuine interest in our lives. It's like going to see friends every few months.

Brigstock Dental & Implant Centre

97 Brigstock Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7JL, UK – 020 8689 6171

Very pleasurable experience, great staff. I look forward to my dental appointments. Everyone is friendly and meticulous.โ€ I highly commend and wish to express my gratitude to Doctor Rudy Audit who has been my dentist for the past 5 years on his professionalism, dedication and perfectionism.

Very personal service and advanced facilities. Excellent value for money. Trust the right decision will be made!

Auckland Surgery

84A Auckland Rd, London SE19 2DF, UK – 020 8653 5146

we're new to the area and have been incredibly impressed with the surgery. Wonderful, friendly service. Like Doctors' surgeries ought to be

Excellent service! Arrived mistakenly 1 hr earlier for my appointment and I got to see the doctor within 5 minutes. Friendly staff and well maintained surgery. 5 star!

The Greyswood Practice

66 Eastwood St, London SW16 6PX, UK – 020 8769 0845

This is the best practice Iโ€™ve ever been registered at. Once you have an appointment (which can be a bit of hassle as itโ€™s phone only from 8am for same day bookings - with most gone by 8.15) - all of the staff are friendly and helpful. They have had a fair bit of rotation of GPs and Locums the last year, but itโ€™s settled down again now. Appointments run pretty much on time and they are very accommodating. - especially good with children.

Can usually get an on-the-day appointment if necessary. All the doctors I've seen here are very thorough and easy to talk to. Definitely recommend them ๐Ÿ˜Š

Friends Road Medical Practice

49-51 Friends' Rd, Croydon CR0 1ED, UK – 020 8688 0532

I have never had a problem at this practice. Appointments are usually given within a week or two, which is reasonable for a London practice in my experience. Staff are always helpful, friendly and courteous.

Reception staff always polite and helpful. Doctors listen to you and discuss your treatment,and are up to date with the latest treatments.

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.

Croydon University Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath, Croydon CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3000

I can understand most people dont like the waiting time in A&E but what do you expect. Its A&E in Croydon. It is always busy. I have an appointment tomorrow with my neurologist. She is lovely to talk and a pleasant attitude. I have no issues with it.

I can certainly say there is an an improving. I had 2 children at Croydon hospital so far and both experiences were different with the second been much better. Everywhere we go has various individuals with various backgrounds, culture, belief's and up bringing so we may need to kindly understand and I know this can be difficult also, different levels of training and experience. You best ask for what you require there and then in a polite manner this may help with your experience whilst at the hospital. I am going in soon to deliver baby number 3 and I am looking to update by giving Croydon hospital a 5 star. I am sure it's going be a better experience, so far it's been good with my apointments and the individuals I have come across. I know tge staff work very hard and can get overwhelmed with work. Thanks you and all the best

Moorfields Eye Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3486

I have been under Moorfields eye departments at Croydon for a number of years and cannot speak highly enough of their level of care and professionalism. Moorfields took over the eye division at CUH quite a while back and the improvements they have achieved are very impressive. I am therefore loathe to post my feedback from last Thursday but do this in the hope that remedial action can be taken. I attended the eye clinic for a post operation review and waited nearly three and a half hours to be seen by a consultant. He and his support staff were clearly embarrassed by the poor scheduling of the mornings appointments which resulted in horrendous log jams and was plainly due to poor resource planning failure by admin staff. The staff and consultants were , as usual, absolutely excellent .However, I really hope we are not returning to the bad old days of thoughtless appointment booking and appropriate staffing decisions!

Accompanied my apprehensive husband David this morning to have laser treatment to repair a torn retina. Moorfields Eye clinic was busy but efficient. David was duly called into the laser room and towards the end of the10 minute procedure, he passed out. With in seconds emergency help arrived, nurses, doctors, oxygen, porters, paramedics with stretcher. A routine session became a scene out of casualty as they brought him round from fainting. With all of this came a real sense of concern, efficiency, reassurance and true care. Bless all of you and thank you.

BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital

Poppy Ln, Shirley Oaks Village, Croydon CR9 8AB, UK – 020 8655 5500

I was admitted through my gastroenterologist, and i have to say the care i received was fantastic. Timing was absolutely outstanding. I didn't have to wait long for the procedure. The rooms, were fantastic. Clean, and i felt very comfortable. I especially have to give my props to the MRI department however. I suffered a moderate form of anaphylaxis after an injection of contrast, and they were very fast, professional, and efficient in regards to treating it straight away. For that i couldn't thank them enough.

After going to Mayday for 18 months, being in a great deal of pain and not being referred for surgery, I requested to see Mr Chitnavis (recommended very kindly by acupuncturist at Artemis clinic). My experience from the initial consultation to post -operative outpatients appt ( and physiotherapy) was impeccable. I was treated very well by all the staff. My greatest moment was waking up after the surgery (discectomy ) and having no more pain. Thank you to all the team who have my quality of life fantastic - I feel like I'm walking on air and have got my life back. From a very grateful patient

They've started asking for ID now and the guy at the entrance just leaned in and put a sticker inside my windscreen. I was slightly annoyed that he didn't ask first but it's not the end of the world. Was I was in, the staff were fairly helpful telling where to dispose of waste I wasn't sure about.

This school was the best, I was a student and I loved it and I still do. It was a nice and amazing experience, I enjoyed it from my first until my last day. Even though I left I still remember this place as my home and family. It was the best place ever I couldn't imagine going any where else it was my life and I will still remember this school until I go. I left 7-8 months ago and I still remember how this place was the laughter, fun and the teachers were amazing, they looked after you and cared for you like their children, they taught me right from wrong I learned so much. Even though they have changed it I still remember what it looked like. So if you need to send your kid to a school this is the one, they have many awards and achievements like oxford outstanding. This school is beyond all others and I couldn't spend my childhood some place else.
