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!

Perfect Profiles Dental Implant Centres

27, Bedford Square, Houghton Regis LU5 5ES, UK – 01582 518100

Having taken several months to complete my implant treatment I can honestly say that I am over the moon! The whole procedure was very easy, the staff are delightful and Dr. Franks made everything pretty painless and simple. He is very professional indeed. The whole process was explained from start to finish, the financial side was made very clear at the first consultation and I now have a lovely smile once again. Thank you to everyone involved.

For clarification, our bone grafting does not cost £2000. The person who wrote that, needed 1 set of bone grafting (£550) and potentially, a second (again £550) but this was not certain. Even if both were needed this is £1100, almost £1000 less than indicated. We operate completely transparently- as in all information received upfront, for FREE enabling any decision on the future to be made obligation free. In addition, there is a price promise on all implant treatment plans to be the lowest costing in the country (with guarantees on all aspects of treatment so quality is assured). Sometimes you can't please everyone, but it's important that the facts relating to treatment are relayed for others to see, fairly and honestly. Many thanks, PP.

West Street Surgery: Dr S V Price

Dr S Sharma - Wheatfield Surgery

60 Wheatfield Rd, Luton LU4 0TR, UK – 01582 601116

I'm lucky enough to be quite healthy and haven't had much need to go to the doctor's much until recently, but over the last few weeks I've had to go in quite a few times for either myself or my children and each and every member of staff have been professional, friendly and efficient. All doctors are busy but they make the processes as pain free as possible :)

Takes a while to get through but prompt and efficient service received so far. Call back received when expected and detailed appointment given.

Kingsbury Court Surgery

Church St, Dunstable LU5 4RS, UK – 01582 663218

Just want to say a huge thank you to the receptionist and nurse at Kingsbury court surgery! My little boy had a nasty fall which resulted in a bloody, swollen bump on his head. They squeezed him in - even without having an appointment, cleaned him up and checked him over. So, thank you - we really appreciate it! ☺️

Sometimes so unprofessional. Receptionist are so rude. You always have to wait the doctors long. At the end helpful and your nervs at the end of breakdown.

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.

Luton and Dunstable Hospital

The L&D Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Lewsey Rd, Luton LU4 0DZ, UK – 01582 491166

I suspect it is hard to love a nurse. We get up early or we work all night. We come home late and are too tired to cook. We work extra because we know there are sick people who need us. We miss weekend events, holidays, birthdays. We don't get too excited over your minor "boo-boo". We have seen far worse. We don't want to talk when we come home. We have talked all day. We don't want to move when we come home. We have moved all day. It may seem that we have left all our caring, our heart, and our love at work, then have come home to you empty. We probably have. But we don't tell you that many times at work that we are mired by anxiety, we are scared. Scared we are missing something. Scared we will let our patient down or worse. Scared that we'll have to deal with angry or violent patients and families. We don't tell you how the staffing crisis makes us cry on the way to work, to do a job we love, but now we are terrified to do because it is breaking us down while putting the most vulnerable at risk. I suspect it is hard to love a nurse, but know this: Your nurse needs your love. Needs your understanding. Needs to know that you "get it". Needs to be the one taken care of every once and a while. Needs someone else to take charge of the details because doing it herself constantly is exhausting. Needs his/her feet rubbed. (Hint hint) Needs a shoulder to cry on when she can't even tell you why she's grieving. Needs you to do the hardest work you may ever do, which is to love a nurse. I would like to thank those of you out there who love us and let us do this work, this calling, this life: Nursing.💜💙💚💛🧡❤️ Copy and paste if you are nurse or love a nurse!!!....👩‍⚕️🏨 i am not a nurse. #copied

My family and I witnessed the well oiled machinery of the ambulance staff and a & e staff this afternoon. My dad was admitted with a mini stroke and was cared for extremely well. He was sent home after a couple of hours but we felt happy with that as we were so reassured by the excellent care he received. Thank you to all the staff who cared for our Dad/husband so well.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Graziano Italian Restaurant

Go Houghton Bar & Restaurant

Go Houghton, Parkside Drive, Houghton Regis, LU5 5RA, UK – 01582 863322

Absolutely fantastic place to eat. Staff always going the extra mile, preparing tables with table and wall decorations along with balloons for a birthday. Portions are enormous and it's definitely not quantity over quality as I have been here a number of times and not once has anybody had to send anything back. Delicious! Would give 10 stars if I could, best place to eat and drink for miles! Keep up the fantastic service!

Got there atmosphere nice ordered go burger after about 20 minutes it arrived. Go burger was juicy very filling very nice. After that was done I had ordered dessert. I got the Waffle with salted caramel and maple syrup. Waffle was disappointing tasted frozen salted caramel was too salty and maple syrup untasteable under the waffles frozen taste Key points Good presentation Frozen dessert Good atmosphere Wheelchair accessible In a dodgy area Good Main dish
