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!

Best dental practice in Wigan! Lovely staff, doesn't feel like a dentist at all. The dentist go out there way to make you feel at ease. All treatment is very good standard!

Just wanted everyone to know how marvellous Hindley Dentist is. I am always welcomed and treated as an individual with patience, understanding and professionalism. I am given the best treatment and the time spent 'in the dentist chair' is never rushed and Shaz is so calming. He listens and shows geniune concern and explains exactly what is needed to be done. Treatment carried out is as painless as possible. Thank you Shaz for the great work you and your staff consistently do. A lovely, caring family orientated dentist which I would recommend to anyone

Wigan Dental and Implant Centre

44 Whelley, Wigan WN1 3PQ, UK – 01942 826366

I literally can't stop smiling! I used to be camera shy, painfully aware of my crooked teeth. Not only that, I suffered with constant mouth ulcers from regularly biting the inside of my mouth with a protruding canine. Waris spoke to me on a number of occasions about the possibility of braces and I decided to go ahead with Invisalign treatment. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and found the treatment to be pain free, convenient and people only realized I wore braces if I chose to tell them. The level of customer service and advice given are always to a very high standard, I have complete trust in the practice and highly recommend my Dentist to anyone.

This dentist is first rate .Dr Patel and staff 1st class very friendly and cannot do enough for you. Always puts your needs first . They do excellent work. I would recommend them to anyone .I'm 110% happy with the work I had done best dentist I have ever been to.👍

mydentist, Atherton Road, Hindley

51 Atherton Rd, England, Hindley, Wigan WN2 3EA, UK – 01942 258888

I've just moved to this surgery and can't compliment it enough. My dentist, Leanne, is proactive, professional and caring. I had a white filling replaced and it looked far better than my original. Haven't experienced emergency care yet, so we will have to wait and see about that side of things. The only issue here is parking, but its really a very minor comment.

My lovely mum died there on shevington ward on September 25th 2015 and all I can say is thank you so very much to all the staff on the ward who were there not only for mum but also for me ...especially to ELAINE who was on shift on the morning my mum died, she stayed close by and talked me through what to expect in my mum's final hours and was there to give me a cuddle and reassuring words when the death occurred, you all allowed mum to have her own private room and let me stay over, I know mum appreciated all you did for her and I especially did, it just made those hard last days bearable and for that I will be forever grateful x

I have twice had the pleasure of visiting the PIU department as a patient. From the gentleman at the desk in reception, to the ladies in the cafe I was treated with friendliness and help. When I went into PIU the staff were welcoming, friendly and explained my treatment as it went along. The staff were happy, kind and totally efficient.

I was sent here from Leigh Infirmary to have further investigations carried out. The staff in the Ambulatory section were first rate - despite having a whole array of tests done, I was never kept waiting between any two events for more than 20 minutes. The nurses were very kind, reassuring, and went out of their way to keep me comfortable during my visit.

No quibbles on the price, cheapest available! Excellent service, despite the skip being dropped on the road, the lady in charge arranged a permit straight away. I can't praise her high enough, she made a complicated job very simple, will definitely use again and recommend to all my friends! Thank you from number 61! I'm sure you know who it is.

As a building contractor you need the right team in place, and that means getting rid of your rubbish quick at the end of the day. We've used Isherwood's for about 12 months to date and never been let down once. I can ring in the middle of the afternoon to arrange collection and the skip has gone by the end of the day. 5 stars!

The option to have it cooked for you is also there which is good. Would definitely go again. Excellent offer during the week for a cheap meal that is lovely. Very nice room as well.
