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!

Been with this bank since I was a kid and I have never had any problems, they have always been very helpful and caught illegal activity once and fixed the problem straight away. The waiting times are not so long, trust me until you have used the banks in spain then you will know how good the banks are over here.

Shaz is a very patient, friendly and extremely professional dentist and I am so pleased that I chose this dentist for my treatment. Keep up the fantastic work that you all do!

This place is quality , i’m always 100% happy with any work carried out i can’t reccomend this place enough to people!

Have been a patient for several weeks now and cannot praise everyone enough! Keep looking at my new ceramic filling and feeling delighted at its perfection. Great team, caring, professional and friendly. I actually look forward to my visits. If you are looking for a new practice with great service and excellent technical skill, book a consultation with Waris. You won't regret it.

Waris offers an excellent professional service that I would highly recommend to anybody. He is a dentist that has a passion for teeth and has given me the best treatment I have ever received from any dentist I have been to. I am thrilled with my 'new' teeth!

Sullivan Way Surgery

41 Sullivan Way, Wigan WN1 3TB, UK – 01942 243649

aside from a few issues with my son's prescriptions (only one GP will write his script due to the cost of the medicine- but it works! and that's the main thing really) we haven't had any major issues here, 9 times out of 10 we can get a same day appointment, especially if it's our children who are unwell. two toilets available, one quite large disability friendly. the waiting area is a decent size, ok it does get busy sometimes usually Wednesday morning when they do bloods but the nurses are quite speedy with this, so nothing to complain about really. as with most medical practices there's often a receptionist who likes to think they can diagnose you on the phone and send you on your way (a while ago as a type 1 diabetic with chronic tonsilitis I asked for an emergency appointment due to my conditions, I was told unless I'm having a heart attack I don't need an emergency appointment, to which I replied *I wouldn't be ringing the doctors if I thought I was having a heart attack* needless to say I went to ince out of hours later that evening. Other than this my experiences have been quite fair!

It is with the upmost deepest regret that I have had to change my doctors. I have been a patient of Sullivan way surgery for over 20 years. They have been fantastic with myself my Husband and my four children. They Doctors are amazing they don’t rush or judge you. They help you as best as they can and most of all they LISTEN. The staff on reception and behind the scenes and spectacular. I’m absolutely gutted to leave this surgery. But due to a house move we are now out of the area. I wish all the staff at Sullivan way all the best and can’t thank you all enough for the care and support you have given my family over the last 20 years. Many thanks always Lindsey hardman xxxx

Can’t explain how amazing Linda was when delivering our brand new baby boy! Linda was so supportive and did everything she could to relax and support my fiancé and myself, we got her a box of chocolates I hope she received! She’s the best midwife ever!!! With 20+ years service and you’re still loving your job is amazing!!! Such a lovely women and just amazing in general! All the women on Neo-natal where also amazing helping us with little baby Oliver whilst he was going through some hard times!! Donna from the Maternity ward was so helpful and supportive whilst we were waiting to go home and getting the bloods done! So happy that this hospital has the staff it has!

I've been here many times not just for myself but with others. We have always received the best service possible by the excellent staff. Yes sometimes we have had long waits but you can't blame the staff or NHS for that can you. Given the resources available to them they work miracles and should be more rewarded for what they do.

Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

Wigan Ln, Wigan WN1 2NN, UK – 01942 244000

My little lad was on rainbow ward for the day to have an operation on his toe. Even though it was such a small operation, the nurses and rest of the staff were amazing, made sure he was well looked after, I know not many wards in the hospital allow other children / visitors, but they were so welcoming to my other 2 kids (i had no other alternative than to take them with me) I wouldn't hesitate to take any of my children back, should I need to... The staff do not get the recognition they deserve. I can't thank them enough for looking after my little boy

I was admitted there last week after being referred there by the Leigh walk in centre,i spent 3 nights there in total.The doctors that work there are 2nd to none having been in many hospitals over the years,the nurses were friendly and attentive as they could be with patient/staff ratio.Dave in Lowton ward was very good to single 1 out for praise. The shops on site for patients,staff and visitors are good along with change & atm machines that are very handy to have.The wards are clean,the only downside is having to pay for the tv for patients which is extortionate,thankfully they have a free wifi service that is excellent so i did not pay for the tv. Parking can be a nightmare for people at visitng times but this applies to all hospitals. Thank goodness for the NHS sevice and hope it goes on for many more years.

Great recycling centre at the Ince Centre. Really friendly staff willing to help. I've took lots of clothes and bedding there. It's good to know that these things can be reused instead of just dumped.

The staff are very helpful, friendly and polite. The centre is well laid out and they are doing their bit to reduce landfill as much as possible.

Paradise Indian Lounge

Best Naan Bread I've had in ages! Delicious, authentic food, good service and very reasonably priced! Will definitely be back!

The food was very nice. The menu isn't as extensive as other Indian restaurants I've been to which isn't a bad thing as the food was very tasty. I'd imagine most people would find something that appeals to them. The atmosphere was relaxing and chilled out.

Nursery and Preschools

Little Acorns Day Nursery

Courtyard House, Dicconson Terrace, Wigan WN1 2AA, UK – 01942 732821

We had to look for a nursery at short notice last year due to unforeseen circumstances and couldn’t be happier that we had the chance to send our 2 daughter’s to Little Acorns. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and work incredibly hard to keep the nursery running to such a good/high standard. The staff did a great job in settling the girls into life at the nursery and both of them have come on in leaps and bounds. We’re regularly kept up to date with their progress and the staff work very closely with each other, parents and of course the children to ensure that they’re achieving their potential. Most importantly, the girls love going to nursery every day so we couldn’t ask for more.

Both my children have attended this nursery from being babies. The staff are amazing and care for the children as if they were their own. They follow the educational guidelines and my eldest son started school well ahead of his peers and is currently on the gifted and talented program at school. It's true that giving your child an early boost will help them go further in life. My youngest son is currently in pre school at little acorns. He had a tough start in life which meant he was way behind on most of his milestones when he started. Over the past 3 years the staff have really helped pull him right up and he's on course to achieve them all now I cannot recommend this nursery more. The relationships you build with the staff, the safeguarding, the time and effort they put in is second to none Thank you for everything
