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!

Banks

HSBC

63 George St, Luton LU1 2AR, UK – 0345 740 4404

I am a loyal client for 5 years and they gave me the opportunity to withdraw money with 2% discount from the interest. Which is pretty cheap and a good deal. They also provide me an e-wallet and e-banking account - the best way to control my money.

TSB Bank

9 Manchester St, Luton LU1 2QB, UK – 01582 457070

Customer service, excellent. So much better since being split from Lloyds Bank. Had been a customer of TSB before them joining with Lloyds. It's good to see they've kept their original values in customer and community support

Not too many customers, staff also not very keen to interact with customers.

NatWest

31 George St, Luton LU1 2YN, UK – 0345 788 8444

Just spoke to James in the Belfast branch - Very friendly and extremely helpful! Great service, thank you

Came in on Tuesday 12/02/2016, to make a transaction. I was served by Sita Murphy, she was exremely helpful and very friendly person.She made transaction payment and made sure that everything was fine. Friendly service is always appreciated. Many thanks for this wonderful service. I did not have to wait for too long, which was the best thing. Well done Sita Murphy.

Dental Surgeries

mydentist Luton

mydentist, Dunstable Rd, Luton LU1 1BB, UK – 01582 722131

Had an emergency appointment and very satisfied with service that has been provided by receptionist as well as procedure with dentist. All staff is friendly and very polite, heads up for a doctor, definitely a professional.

Ive paid almost £20 just for the dentist to look in my mouth she could have polished my teeth but didn't not very happy about that , friendly receptionists .

Marsh Road Dental Practice

31 Marsh Rd, Luton LU3 2QF, UK – 01582 572094

Excellent service, you get seen on time don't need to sit long for your appointment. Staffs are very polite and friendly.

Vogue Dental Care

260-262 Crawley Green Rd, Luton LU2 0SJ, UK – 01582 432181

I've recently finished my C-Fast braces treatment at Vogue & couldn't be happier with the results! I've always been very nervous when it comes to the Dentist but from the first consultation Dr Rhishi Patel made me feel so at ease & comfortable. All the nursing / reception staff are lovely & friendly. I cannot recommend Vogue Dental Care enough!

Called at 8.30 in the morning as I had chipped a tooth at the weekend. Fitted me in that afternoon and at 3.45 I'm home with it replaced looking better than it did before. Excellent, professional service and a no nonsense approach to dentistry (which is a rarity)

Dr. T Verity - Caddington Doctors Surgery

33 Manor Rd, Caddington, Luton LU1 4EE, UK – 01582 725673

I would like to thank Dr Luckhurst personally for my last visit to the surgery was for an issue of chest pain, breathlessness and asthma review. Dr Luckhurst was understanding and very helpful, she went through all the issues I had and more, this was an emergency appointment at the end of the day and Dr Luckhurst spent more time with me than she had with her busy schedule and her designated timeslots. Dr Luckhurst reviewed my Asthma medicines, discuss some personal issues, investigated and wrote a hand written letter to the L&D Hospital requesting an appointment to resolve a reoccurring hernia. I would like to thank Dr Luckhurst for being so accommodating as my life schedule is very busy and I don't attend the surgery very often and imposed her with many more issues that I should have done. Thank you Regards Roger Morgan

Woodland Avenue Practice

30 Woodland Ave, Luton LU3 1RW, UK – 01582 572239

such an improvement from my last surgery. I needed injections they fit me in the next day. friendly staff. wish i moved sooner. Parking is a little tight but worth it for the care you receive.

I have been with the practice around 3 years now. No complaints what so ever. Automated 24 hours appointment system is fantastic. Some of the staff/ phone handlers do need customer service skill training.

Dr T Abubacker - Bellhouse Medical Centre

163 Dunstable Rd, Luton LU1 1BW, UK – 0844 387 8123

I have been a patient at this practice since the early 80's, at first a patient of the lovely Dr Stanton who has long left the practice I have always received the highest standard of care and would not dream of changing to another doctor. Yes it can sometimes be difficult to getting the exact appointment to fit in with a busy life but they always offer emergency same day appointments. The receptionists on the whole are lovely and helpful and I have only ever had issues with one of them over the way I was spoken to; I did explain to my GP exactly what I wasn't happy with and she promised to investigate. As an ex NHS employee I felt it was important to do this.

Excellent Dr Campbell and Dr Abubacker

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.
