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

Gentle Dental Care

6 Chapel Hill, Reading RG31 5DG, UK – 0118 945 2900

Hello to anyone reading this! I should start by saying how simple and easy my visits have been to the surgery. The first appointment was at short notice, no problem! The dentist, great guy!! My following appointments, no complications, still very accommodating and.....easy! A nice location, tidy and well kept!!!! All in all, a big thumbs up. Thanks gentle dental, you should be proud!

Just had my 6 monthly check up all clear. I have been a patient at Gentle Dental Care in Tilehurst since the practice began and can strongly recommend the attentive service provided by all the staff and professionals. Patient care and customer service are five star, whoever you meet at Gentle Dental Care - thank you for everything you do!

Triangle Dental Practice

79 School Rd, Reading RG31 5AT, UK – 0118 942 7113

The dentists and hygienists are very considerate and caring, and you always get a nice warm welcome from the staff. Have been a patient with this practice for over 25 years now and I've always been very happy with my treatment and the service they give - we now live over 100 miles away so will have to eventually change dentists - unless the Triangle Practice could move to my village …please!

I went in yesterday to register as a new patient. The Receptionists were friendly and helpful. As I was leaving I was told 'Welcome to the Surgery'. How lovely to have such friendly and inviting staff.

A good, friendly surgery. Very helpful and amazing abilities to book appointments!

Grovelands Medical Centre

701 Oxford Rd, Reading RG30 1HG, UK – 0118 958 2525

My grateful thanks to Nurse Aideen for her care, attention and discretion when my husband and I visited today, 15th May 2017. Also thanks to the Receptionist who I talked with and to Dr. Escamilla for his time and patience and for explaining symptoms, causes and medications so clearly. Great service. Thank you all.

When I have been to Grovelands Medical Centre, all the staff have been lovely from the receptionists to the Drs and nurses who did jabs. Negative reviews must reflect on the fact all people have off days. No need to slam a usually decent medical centre.

Theale Medical Centre

Englefield Rd, Theale, Reading RG7 5AS, UK – 0118 930 3081

Always helpful and I have always felt very well looked after despite their large patient list.

After much thought I join Theale Clinic and not been disappointed by the care I have been given by the doctors. Thank you. Saying that my very first visit to the clinic I did experience the rude receptionists, they not acknowledge me for at least 5 minutes, both staff chatting, then took a phone call, typing and breaking down boxes before any acknowledgement or apology ....... Hence the 3 stars ....... Yes it's hard being a Dr's receptionist, work on customer/patient service and you can easily get 5 😉

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.

Tilehurst Surgery Partnership

Tylers Pl, Pottery Rd, Reading, Tilehurst RG30 6BW, UK – 0118 942 7528

I have found this surgery to be very good. Helpful staff and I've always been seen that day if an emergency sometimes with the children within an hour when asked what is wrong I been asked to go straight in. I have been very pleased. One time with the baby the dr even called me the next day to see how they were which I thought was lovely. Yes standard appointments take a few weeks but they are non urgent and can wait. Let's not forget how many patients they look after! I can't fault.

Great service and nice doctors

Thai Now

Great Thai, the food arrives so hot and tastes like real restaurant quality food. Highly recommend if you haven't tried it before

Extremely tasty food, definitely a restaurant quality takeaway. The prices are on the high side but it is to be expected for the quality of the food. Portions are maybe a tad small compared to traditional Indian and Chinese takeaways.
