Barclays Bank

Very very very helpfull staff!

HSBC

9 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 2AA, UK – 0345 740 4404

Very lovely attendants who you would firstly speak to queue for the advisors. Nice waiting area. However the advisor I encountered provided me with false information and he was really forceful. I'm glad that I knew the correct information online so I wasn't cheated by him. I ended up finishing up my account opening and switch in another branch. It's very appealing so I've made formal complaint and received positive feedbacks from their customer service. Watch out if you ever speak to Nirav S Palan.

The fact that it opens on a Saturday until 5pm won me over!

HSBC Bank Plc

139a N End, Croydon CR0 1TN, UK – 0345 740 4404

AVOID THE COUNTER SERVICE IF YOU CAN! It's a fine branch if you can use the self-service machines and pop in and out quickly but god help you in the instances you need to queue up to speak to a cashier, which sometimes you've got no choice but to do. - Long queues with people often pushing in without consequences - Inconsiderate and rude staff often at open windows doing their own chores, sometimes even openly having lunch even when there is clearly a long queue of people who've been waiting for ages and are getting frustrated - Too many inexperienced or trainee staff who don't know what they're doing which contributes to the ridiculous wait times - Pens to fill out paying in forms often not working or unavailable Like most banks, these dirtbags make MILLIONS from our deposits and rather than hire staff and make in-branch experiences better using that windfall they instead prefer to help illegally launder money for Mexican drug cartels.

Good customer service and an array of self service machines and coin counter available for account holders ....saves a lot of time especially during busy periods

Dental Surgeries

Streatham Common Dental Surgery

202 Eardley Rd, Streatham, London SW16 5TF, UK – 020 8764 4368

Absolutely Fabulous! I love coming here! No, that was not a typo and yes, I am intentionally reviewing a Dental Surgery ;-) I have been coming here for nearly 5 years now and am soon to move out of the Streatham Common area, however I shall not be changing dentists. This is a lovely family run surgery wit a pro-active approach to treating their patients. I am always greeted with a smile and when I have needed treatment have been advised on a range of care helping me choose the best 'root' for me. You can tell this surgery actually cares about it's patients as advise and education on oral care (and in my case *better* oral care) are as much part of the service as the check-up itself. I have had a range of treatments here including fillings, root canals and extractions. All of which have been carried out with the upmost professionalism and care and as a result were all far less daunting than they sound. I cannot recommend this surgery enough. This really is the 'crown' of Dental Surgeries, a shining example of how visiting the dentist should be. I have always left with a smile, all be it sometimes a numb one.

Great clinic. I called for an emergency filling 1 hour before their closing time, they were kind and accepted me. The dentist was very kind, quick and efficient. She explained what she was doing throughout the whole process and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this surgery.

Gentle Dental Care

149 Shirley Rd, Croydon CR0 7LR, UK – 020 8654 3722

I would like to give massive thanks to Kam. He really put a beautiful smile on my face and it didn’t hurt at all. It was actually a pleasure. After visiting the practice last Friday, you could sense that practice itself was soaked with love and passion for what he does. It was topped up with professional approach and I could see why the practice won so many awards over the years and stays at the top. Now I have no hesitation recommending Gentle Dental Care to friends and family and even strangers. Once again, thank you Kam, you made my day. Best regards, Johnny with beautiful smile :)

I have no real fear of dentistry, but if I did I would still want to come here. I needed a large molar removed as the filling had fallen out. The remaining tooth was nearly below the gum line. I was sceptical that the lovely dentist would be able to get to it After a 30 minute tussle out it came!!! No need for a hospital appointment. Class! All the staff are great, chatty, and can't recommend them enough!

Southern Dental

233 Selhurst Rd, London SE25 6XP, UK – 020 8653 6068

The Greyswood Practice

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

This is the best practice I’ve ever been registered at. Once you have an appointment (which can be a bit of hassle as it’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 it’s settled down again now. Appointments run pretty much on time and they are very accommodating. - especially good with children.

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.

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.

Croydon University Hospital

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

It’s a shame people are sometimes disappointed with this hospital but put it this way, it is a big one and really crowded. As for myself just been this morning to the a&e popped in at 8.30 and by 10 I’ve had all the checks done. Many thanks to the lady at the reception and the nurse, lovely ladies, and a special thank you to Dr Liz Waters, amazing young professional and kind human being❤️!!! Came worrying and left with a big smile, nice to be told your health is fine, my day at work was enjoyable!

The service you receive here is very hit and miss. I've been suffering from a problem for the last 10 months now, for the most part service has been good, but unfortunately I can't say that for the entirety of the time. Went to see a neurologist after being referred by the first specialist I had been seeing and he seemed very rude. I was called half an hour late and walked in there to him having not even read my notes. He was telling me it was all a confidence issue despite my GP, specialist and myself telling him these symptoms he claimed were unlikely to impact me were still impacting me. He told me if I needed help around I was no better than his five year old granddaughter which I took huge offense to considering I've been unwell for so long. Half way through my appointment he made me go outside because he got a phone call be didn't want me hearing, and I got the impression he was wasn't listening. He did hardly any checks but just assumed they weren't bringing on symptoms without asking me, even though they were, and kept getting funny with me when I was explaining why I'd had to take so much time off because my symptoms have been that bad for so long so I kept getting signed off. They hadn't booked me in for any scans prior to this so in fairness the poor bloke didn't really have much to go off of, but he essentially turned around and said I may well be having these symptoms but he didn't know why so he just referred me elsewhere, but didn't seem interested in a follow up or to try to help me get to the route of the problem in the meantime. I'd been waiting 3 months for this appointment and had been told by my specialist he was sure he'd give me a certain diagnoses and get medication to help with my headaches, but it was completely dismissed as soon as I brought it up. Very disheartening when you've been ill so long and been told this appointment was going to give you all the answers.

Pizza Express

48 George St, Croydon CR0 1PB, UK – 020 8681 2550

Overall great, been here twice. Food is great. Service is a bit slow though. Sometimes seems like they are not fussed about helping much, but doing it anyway after a second thought...

I've been twice. The pizza is crispy and tasty, but the staff always take long to take the orders. Other inconvenience is that the toilets (both gents and ladies) were freezing (couldn't spot any heating radiator). Poor the one that will use the basin, lol.

The food isn't the best you will ever taste but the variety and atmosphere make up for that

Great food, great value, easy to park. Some Staff just a little rude. But overall a lovely experience. Can be a little noisy!

Wagamama Croydon

4 Park Ln, Croydon CR0 1JA, UK – 020 8760 9260

Very clean and smart looking with plenty of seating for diners, the menu had a great choice of Chinese, Japanese and some Thai food with plenty of vegetarian options. The only downside for me was the portion size for what you pay may be a little stingy but it's not the worst. Alcohol is available from the bar along with coffee and tea and the normal drinks you would find. Staff were very friendly and the food was served to us quite promptly. Overall a good visit.

It was a good dining experience despite having problems previously at this location, the service was really good too good at times as the mains came immediately after the starters so that was a little annoying. The food did taste good and there wasn't any complaints. Even though it was semi busy it was still a nice meal with great service.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for almost 3.5 years. She started off in the baby room and recently graduated from preschool. Her journey was very smooth and her progress has been remarkable. She was cared well during all her stages of development and quite happy with the staff and the learning methods used. Thank you MMI for bring out the best in my daughter.

MMI nursery provides safe, warm and inviting environment for children. The staff creates friendly relationships with the children stimulating learning, where children with special needs get extra support.

The toys and books reflect the children's diversity and are used in a unsexist way.

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.

A very good school that has to contend with " The Croydon Factor" and Political Correctness, that seems to have crept in recently - which may affect the future success of the school.
