Good customer service

Nationwide

170 High St, Slough SL1 1JP, UK – 0800 554 0329

Since I first came here to open my account and since further visits for business I can happily report the staff are diligent, friendly and accomodating. Monika especially on my last visit smashed it. Very busy branch and with the service provided it is easy to see why.

A good old fashioned Mutual building society where customers come first, staff very approachable and chatty. Their mortgage rates probably best in UK, I have had my mortgage here for years, each time I re-assess Nationwide comes out best.

Local Chambers of Commerce for SL2 3QA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Dental Surgeries

Emergency Dentist Slough

8 Stoke Poges Ln, Slough SL1 3NT, UK – 07500 901888

Lovely people, excellent service. Seen on a Sunday no problem. Will be going back.

The BEST. So helpful, friendly, efficient and professional. I was in a pickle after knocking my teeth in an accident on a Friday evening and could not find anyone locally to help me, so drove up from Brighton for treatment after trawling the net and speaking to many unhelpful people it was so refreshing to come accross Nina who can only be described as an angel and Dr Sehra performed a miracle popping my teeth back in place. I can't recommend them highly enough. If you ever have a dental emergency get straight in touch with them. All my teeth are back in the right place and working well - that will teach me for dancing on table tops!

Acorn Dental Care

8 Stoke Poges Lane, Slough SL1 3NT, UK – 01753 776757

I recently had my braces taken off and booked an appointment at Acorn for a general clean. Not only did I get the appointment sooner than expected, but I was attended to exceptionally by the receptionists upon my arrival, as well as my operating dentist, Dr. Gajadhar. They have a welcoming environment and the treatment itself was beyond outstanding, as I required a filling which I wasn't aware of and, due to the precision of Dr. Gajadhar, there's no spec of error with the filling, making it unnoticeable to even myself! I would highly recommend coming to Acorn, as they value their patients highly and take care of them as one of their own.

After many sleepless nights and after visiting other dentists such as wexham road dental care, all i recieved from them was a simple diagnostic and anti-biotics however soon as i was recommended acorn dentists, the day i entered they done my check up, diagnostic and began operation without delay, after a painful short while my tooth ache was completely gone and the dentist Dr. Gajadhar was extremely polite and delicate but also very honest about my state, after myself realisation of how bad the matter was he booked me in for a few following treatments and since ive attended all ive honestly been stress free, shout out to all the receptionists, very kind and informative! Thanks acorn dentist, if i was still attending wexham toad dental care, they would maybe book me in for 20 checkups and i wouldve probally taken enough painkillers to overdose a elephant!

Abbey Dental Surgery

5 Sheffield Rd, Slough SL1 3EG, UK – 01753 536601

I have always had good experiences in the past however today my appointment was cancelled without any prior notice, no messages were left on my phone which left me with a day off work for nothing.

Fab team!

O C E Hassim - Threeways Surgery

Pennylets Green, Stoke Poges SL2 4AZ, UK – 01753 643445

Generally receive good care here although it is often difficult to get an appointment in the same week due to it being used by students and the elderly in Bournemouth, of which there are a lot. They cancelled my blood test because I was (literally) 2 minutes late, due to buses not running on time. I don't think it's fair to punish patients who have to rely on public transport to get to the surgery, make the journey all the way there, 2 minutes late, and are turned away. Surely this wastes more resources in the long run, because I now have to take another appointment for a blood test, which another patient could have had, and wasted my money and time getting to the surgery. In addition, most of us know that surgeries run with 5-10 minute delays, and I think to turn a patient away for being 2 minutes late is ridiculous and unfair.

Farnham Road Surgery

301 Farnham Rd, Slough SL2 1HD, UK – 01753 520917

I thought about giving a bad review but after hearing about everyone else's experiences at other surgeries, I now see that this is a national problem. After returning to the surgery to try to get an appointment face to face, I met a really nice receptionist who was very helpful. I now have an appointment for early April. Hearts and minds.

Crosby House Surgery

91 Stoke Poges Ln, Slough SL1 3NY, UK – 01753 520680

I really like this surgery. Helpful staff and good doctors.

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.

Wexham Park Hospital

Wexham, Slough SL2 4HL, UK – 01753 633000

The guys working there are fantastic and very polite and professional. The only thing that made the visit less than perfect was the refreshment offer closing early. I know it's a volunteer concession but the coffee shop would have been better being open all day, even on a Sunday

Went in for my first maternity scan, the staff from the door through to the blood tests were smiling, friendly, patient, comfortable to talk to and ask questions of. Thank you to all the staff for making our first experience of seeing our child such a beautiful one :)

Spire Thames Valley Hospital

Wexham Street, Slough, Wexham SL3 6NH, UK – 01753 662241

A great hospital, we have known it a long time, but the current upgrades are making it very patient friendly. Superb staff, for our stay we wish to single our senior nurse Angela, she was incredible - all 5 star.

Went in for a one night stay following corrective surgery following a broken nose. Aside from the higher end prices, i couldn't fault my stay! There were loads of staff, so you're never short of help if you need it, and all of the staff and extremely friendly and really cared about my comfort and providing their care with a smile! Really appreciate the care and attention of everyone that i dealt with! Its nice to be treated like a human where you can talk to staff as well, and not just a patient or a number that needs to get checked off a list!

Southmead Surgery

Blackpond La, Slough SL2 3ER, UK – 01753 643195

I have been a patient at this surgery for 7 years and I can say with absolute confidence they are simply outstanding. I work in the clinical industry and I can appreciate how demanding patients can be. As long as the general public respect the staff and how difficult their job can be, you can expect an excellent level of customer service in return here, and one that makes he feel proud enough to share my thoughts. I have never had a problem getting an appointment at Southmead Surgery and the one I couldn't make I simply rang out of respect & courtesy to cancel. If you are reading this review I want to offer you assurance this surgery team are simply the best I've ever experienced in 43 years.

St George's C of E Church

St Georges House, Long Furlong Dr, Slough SL2 2LX, UK – 01753 525935

Now completed. Turned out to be a very good building. The original building from the 60s had its problems and was demolished. A couple of features have been retained which gives the new building a sense of belonging. Lots of new faces now but still a few of the original faces still attend and John, the new Vicar, is very welcoming to all. payitforwardeddie

Envirogreen Ltd

880 Plymouth Rd, Slough SL1 4LP, UK – 01753 323001

Having been left to clear out my late father's garage - I was very concerned when I come across several rusty old drums of Creosote, stock left over from my father' business, which 20 years ago was legal, now a banned substance. I am a carer for my elderly mother which is a full time responsibilty, so having the extra task of disposing of these drums "responsibly" and a deadline to vacate the garage, I was truly in need of some help. Envirogreen came to my assistance, were larger companies wouldn't even return my call, Envirogreen couldn't have been more helpful. I can't thank Neil, Jane and Gary enough for their many years of experience handling and disposing of hazardous substances and their fantastic customer service with a quick response to my predicament. If I could award more stars * I would. Highly recommend.

Get the same price they offered on their site, Having been stung by a company who promised a slightly Higher price than everyone else only to have non stop trouble, revised offers, lost property & bad service, My latest experience was (as usual) almost effortless in every way. Their whole process is so simple, they keep me updated at every step & are super quick at processing the received goods & then paying by same day transfer. I honestly in a doubt using them as they seems new company but i am really happy now with the service and i will definitely recommend them.

Beechwood Secondary School

Long Readings Ln, Slough SL2 1QE, UK – 01753 520473

Wish I could give 5000 stars best school ever!!!!! First off this school is very misunderstood granted this school wasn’t the best but they’ve definetly improved! The teachers are very are supportive and they want you to succeed and the facilities might just be the best in the country, the smartest people here are getting over 10 A*! They have a pool in the school many schools could only dream about having facilities like Beechwoods and there’s also a lot of cultural diversity here Polish, Arab and even Australian this school has it all!! (I know all this because I recently moved to this school and I already love it)

I realized that school has very difficult circumstances, without any learning outside the school then I would failed. In normal school, teachers are giving over 50% information, in Beechwood there are giving barely about 15% information for lower sets. Another thing is that they are allocate students in set 6 to set 1 (UK education system). People in set six are repeating they are ''dumb'' over and over again, in that case there is very low possibility them to improve, they constantly are keeping destructing because of the people around them that are saying they are never going to succeed. However I like Beechwood despite the fact that apparently it is the worst school in the UK, but if people that are going to see your GCSE paper and notice that actually you have passed it very well, regardless on how difficult situation you were at Beechwood, it could be language barrier as well. I am writing that because I've been in the lowest set without knowing any English at all. Unconsciously I was coming to this school with a smile on my face, cut know it is conscious :)
