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

TSB Bank

163 St John's Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7SD, UK – 0131 517 9995

Itโ€™s almost impossible to speak to someone in TSB branches as they usually donโ€™t pick up the phone. Itโ€™s ok when you go into the branch but not everything can be sorted without making an appointment first so itโ€™s a vicious circle. The only alternative is to schedule via their HQ call centre.

I find the staff pleasant, helpful,and diligent,hopefully it's not the next in line for the chop!(Beware the creepy traffic warden) - - - - - 168

Gorgie Road Dental Practice

296/, 1 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh EH11 2PP, UK – 0131 337 3936

Cant fault Miguel. I need quite alot of work and he has kept me updated, makes sure i know what treatments il be getting, im really nervous at the dentist,so he checks im ok during the treatment and afterwards. Five๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ from me

Very compitent and very professional highly recommend

Craiglockhart Dental Practice

132 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1BY, UK – 0131 443 4050

I can not recommend this practice enough! I recently joined as I required some urgent dental work but I was also interested in the teeth whitening treatments as well as getting my front crown replaced (as I always felt my last crown didn't quite match my other front tooth in colour or shape). I found the service here excellent and the staff were all so friendly. I was amazed at the results and everyone who knows me comments on how great my teeth look!!

Staff very friendly and helpful, and I was seen as soon as my appointment was due. No undue pressure to undertake unnecessarily expensive treatments, but instead a professional and first class scale and polish - and all on NHS. I was with a private practice for years and there is absolutely no discernable difference in the quality of care...except there's no wallet-paralysing bill at the end. Cannot believe that everyone eligible doesn't take advantage of this excellent service.

Davidson's Mains Dental

65 Main St, Edinburgh EH4 5AD, UK – 0131 336 3903

IDH dentist at Tesco Corstophine

Corstorphine Dental Centre

96 Saughton Road North, Edinburgh EH12 7JU, UK – 0131 334 2524

I've been a patient at Corstorphine Dental Centre for 8 years and have always found the staff to be professional and welcoming. My dentist is Thomas Murphy, his skill and experience always engenders absolute confidence. He's easily the best dentist I've ever had, I can't recommend him highly enough. I've had fillings, extraction, root canal treatment, a crown and a partial chrome denture and have been thoroughly delighted with all my treatment. I have an issue with generalised anxiety and Thomas always goes out of his way to calm me down and is happy to explain everything to me in terms that I can easily understand.

Dr Hardy always goes the extra mile to ensure my dental health. fantastic dentist and meticulous, with a wonderful bed side manner.

Slateford Dental Care

47-51 Slateford Rd, Edinburgh EH11 1PR, UK – 0131 337 2689

The quality of care offered by Dawn, Hetta and the team at this dental practice is excellent. I feel absolutely confident in the recommended treatments and procedures, and every effort is made to put the patient at their ease. Reception staff are friendly and professional. Alison the hygienist also first class. Highly recommend!

I was recommended by a friend to Slatford Dental Care when I had to have one of my prominent teeth removed, I'm quite uncomfortable going to the dentist and not a very good patient however the huge gap in my mouth was extremely unsightly. I made an appointment to go and see Robert King, at my first visit Robert and his assistant Martine Milne were fantastic, Robert told me about the different options I could have and explained the different procedures, he suggested I go away and think about it. I opted for a implant, I was sent all the relevant information about the procedure and my appointment was made. My second visit was to insert the small metal screw to hold my new tooth, as you can imagine I was extremely apprehensive but Robert and Martine went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable and relaxed, I left the surgery with nothing more than a slightly sore jaw where my gum had been stitched, by the time I had had my third visit I was totally relaxed and found the procedure extremely easy, my fourth visit was to take a moulding of my mouth and to match the colour for my new tooth, my fifth and final visit I had my new tooth fitted I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made choosing Robert King and his team. I would thoroughly recommend him and the Staleford Dental Practice

Ladywell Medical Centre West

10 Ladywell Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7TB, UK – 0131 334 3602

Adjusting my review score as I haven't had many issues with Ladywell recently. Reception staff have only ever been lovely every time I have called. Big improvement!

Some of the best Doctors in town; some of the worst receptionists as well

Blackhall Medical Centre

51 Hillhouse Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3TH, UK – 0131 332 7696

I have been with this practice since Jimmy Manson etc ( about 50 years) and have found all the staff very courteous and civil. The doctors are absolutely great and not many practices will give you an emergency appointment as quick as this one. Carry on with the good work!!!

Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Edinburgh

122 Corstorphine Rd, Edinburgh EH12 6UD, UK – 0131 334 0363

I have been several times to the hospital both self funding and with insurance. The service has been very good on all occasions. They minor issue is they charge you for paracetomol and simple pain killers, which can be much cheaper from your local pharmacy. They should let you know this upfront and give you the option.

The hospital is lovely and the grounds are beautiful. I wish the cleaners were a bit better though because spiders and other people's hair in your room is very off-putting. I had the worst sleep ever, the rooms are not remotely sound proof and you can hear everything going on in the ward! But they are spacious and comfortable. All staff, but one, were lovely. They were very accommodating and caring. The one that wasn't was still nice but she didn't have the same warm nature as the others. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend it here.

Western General Hospital

Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK – 0131 537 1000

Waited 10 months to be seen by a specialist, in 3 minutes he told me that achilles tendon inflammation is not treatable and sent me on my way. Why could they not have told me this 10 months ago over the phone? Waited 7 months to see a hearing specialist who told me tinnitus can't be treated and to try relax, and sent home within 5 minutes. Again, could they not have told me over the phone? Them specialists have a real easy well paid job.

My mum spent her last few days here what wonderful Doctors and Nurses they have here Best care in the World I can't praise them highly enough. Today i was in for a Ct scan it took them 19minutes from walking in the door to leaving thats Amazing๐Ÿ˜

The Edinburgh Clinic

Garscube Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6BG, UK – 0131 311 8000

I moved from Erskine Stewart's Melville School in P7 across to St. George's. The experience I had at this school was amazing. I loved coming to this school! The classes are a lot smaller this means that you get more attention from the teachers. All the teachers are so dedicated and passionate about their job and their subjects this in return made us want to learn more and do well in our exams. The EDUCATION, the SUPPORT, and the OPPORTUNITIES at this school are EXCELLENT.

Great school, good education. The food is great, the only problem was that you had to pay for all of the uniform.
