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

The Art Of Dentistry

3 The Avenue, Colchester CO3 3PA, UK – 01206 574011

Fantastic dental surgery. Staff are professional, courteous and do their utmost to make your visit a positive experience. A. Marshall in particular is wonderful. She was thorough, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.

Great dentists and a great service. Highly recommend for a first class service.

Straight Road Dental Practice

118 Straight Rd, Colchester CO3 9DJ, UK – 01206 769695

Have found customer service and clinical service to be top notch.

Creffield Lodge Dental Practice

20 Creffield Rd, Colchester CO3 3JA, UK – 01206 572093

I cannot recommend Naz and the team here highly enough. Professional, friendly and accommodating with appointments. Treatment I have had is of excellent quality and care was taken throughout to ensure my comfort both during and after treatment. Thank you!

North Hill Surgery Dr Hochstein & Partners

18 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 578070

While some of my friends and family find it difficult to find a doctor willing to listen to them and to suggest more than taking paracetamol, I found here one of the best GPs I have ever talked to. Dr. Claire Cooper always pays attention, takes one's worries seriously, listens carefully and sent me for future medical investigations every time it was the case. I think she does a brilliant job and I am happy that there are still people like her in the NHS.

Ambrose Avenue Group Practice

76 Ambrose Ave, Colchester CO3 4LN, UK – 01206 549444

I've always had a good experience with the surgery, with making appointments and also repeat prescriptions. I've made a few mistakes like forgetting to order things and sometimes needing to be seen at a particular time or at short notice and I've found that the staff have really tried to help. I'd also say that my GP Dr Rassell has been great, she's always listened to my concerns, has been kind and helpful and has always made follow up referrals for me.

Wimpole Road Surgery

52 Wimpole Rd, Colchester CO1 2DL, UK – 01206 794794

Found this surgery to be very good! The Receptionists are very friendly and welcoming and take time with patients. The doctors and nursing staff listen to the ailments which are troubling you and recommend different options. Have had many health problems and these have been treated well and involved specialist treatments. The one doctor I found condescending and rude was a female elder doctor who has thankfully now left. Wonderful place and the fact you can book appointments and prescriptions online makes life easier.

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.

I would like to say thank you so much for the care I have had...second to none. Yes the car park isn't the best but they are always helpful and try to find you a space, but it's the medical care that is important to me and it's been wonderful in the eye clinic...thank you Dr Bansal...he told me what was happening the whole way through the procedure...the nurses were patient, kind, attentive...I can't say enough about everyone involved...during the procedure I had someone hold my hand the whole way through...I can't tell you how reassuring this was...it helped me to relax....I can see again, drive again....I have my life back thanks you everyone...Elizabeth Norton

Staff is very helpful, kind and professional. It was very easy to find my way and to get the instructions needed. The building is very old and historical which automatically means some renovation may be needed, but nevertheless good service.

Colchester Recycling Centre for household waste

Maldon Rd, Colchester CO3 4RN, UK

Helpful staff. Always seems to be busy with lots of cars but usually I can find a spot to pull into. With staff assistance the job is done in no time and I'm ready to move on.

I’m sorry but I cannot understand the bad reviews for this place. The staff are incredibly friendly and courteous. They helped me carry stuff. They took stuff off me to put it in the right place. I witnessed an incident of a staff member being verbally abused for asking someone to use the correct bin and he was still really polite to the bloke. Can’t compliment the staff enough.

Don't be fooled by an uninspiring exterior, once in (provided you've booked at peak times), you will not be disappointed. The quirky layout over 3 floors varying hugely in ambience all add to the charm of this Italian restaurant. Food served was piping hot, well presented and delicious. Service was quick and staff were attentive. Although Italian this is not a pizzeria, so go elsewhere for that!

Yes, another true and authentic Italian restaurant in Colchester - love it. Food is real, authentic Italian with real Italian ingredients and way of cooking. Atmosphere is lovely and staff is even better. Cook is delightful and kind. Will absolutely come back. Highly recommend to those who wish to experience authentic and real Italian food.
