Lloyds Bank

182 High St, Walthamstow, London E17 7JH, UK – 0345 300 0000

Niki and Emily are really helpful staff, who listen carefully (just as important as immediately 'doing' something). They are good at sorting out depressingly appalling errors made by various central customer services staff at Lloyds Bank. Also at dealing with people like me who are driven mad by this kind of carelessness or inaccuracy. They daily demonstrate why branch staff are crucial. Were it not for them I might well have moved all my accounts to another bank by now.

i have one comment to make about one particular member of staff. She was behind the enquiries desk and was chewing her gum in such a disgusting way . I think staff should be trained to be able to help the customers but also how to make themselves look professional. Its not all about make up and nice hair.

Nice staff. I had an interview with Mr. Anthony. Very polite and friendly person. Explained me everything and gave me all the details concerning opening and managing my personal account. At the end of the interview, I met the manager of that branch Ms. Natalia. She asked me about my experience with HSBC and about my last interview. Very efficient and professional manager!

Dental Surgeries

Abbey Dental Walthamstow

25 St James St, Walthamstow, London E17 7PJ, UK – 020 8521 2816

Both doctor and nurse as well as reception staff were warm, welcoming, efficient and competent at their jobs. They explained everything in a positive way and made me feel more confident about oral hygiene and dentist visits, which means something coming from someone who's had a fear of dentists for the majority of her life. Highly recommended.

Inspire Dental Walthamstow

67-69 Palmerston Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 6PU, UK – 020 8521 6656

Wanstead Village Dental & Health Centre

Phoenix House, 24 High St, London E11 2AQ, UK – 020 8530 2126

Friendly receptionist; always tries to ensure that I can block book with my 2 children. Dentists here are very good with my youngest!

I've been to a few of the dentist there over the years & everyone of them has been really professional & great, I had a brace fitted & again that was done exceptionally, I'm always greeted warmly by each & every dental nurse who assists the dentist.

Dr I S Bhatnagar - Francis Road Medical Centre

94 Francis Rd, Leyton, London E10 6PP, UK – 020 8539 3131

Best in town. Always getting appointments very quick, not like other medical centres where you need to wait weeks to be seen. All doctors are proffesional, friendly and helpful. Thank you!!!

My experience meeting and being cared for by a Nurse named Izabela was fantastic. I do not have enough good words to describe this Nurse. She is a natural Nurse in every sense of the word, combined with her natural customer/patient service. She has so much empathy and professionalism which I have not seen in many practices. Being a new patient I have more confidence in the practice and will recommend it. once you are able to go past the receptionists, you will be fine. I thank Nurse Izabela and give her a 5 star rating any day. Just to add that my appointment was on the 24th of November 2016 by 10:15 am

Dr J Bailey

107 Shernhall St, Walthamstow, London E17 9HS, UK – 020 8520 5138

Amazingly friendly with the right level of professionalism. Aways putting the patient first, best GP practice that I have been under

Always have had a brilliant service here! Staff are always so happy to help and the Doctors are equally as great. One of the best surgeries around!

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.

My wife has had both our children at Whipps and the staff were attentive, caring and always at hand. The birthing unit is a specialist place where everything is catered for. Thanks to all the amazing midwives and doctors who helped bring our children into the world

Fantastic service, I was really impressed with the staff and if I would decide to have another baby I will choose this Hospital.

Whipps Cross University Hospital

Whipps Cross Rd, Leytonstone, London E11 1NR, UK – 020 8539 5522

A George V (1917) rambling hospital though modernised. Respiratory Medicine is excellent and sent me for a lifesaving operation and have checkups every 6 months. On the other hand I was admitted to Urology, caught an infection there which caused serious complications which made me on antibiotics for 4 months, nasty nasty ward. Services like x-rays,scans,cardiac, nuclear medicine etc are excellent..

Unfortunately had to use children's A & E lately and staff etc were fantastic. Friends have also said the same when they have used this service. Took someone to adult a & e and again fantastic apart from long waiting time which was no refection on the brilliant staff that work extremely hard and were so friendly and helpful. Really appreciate having this hospital nearby. Thank you.

Well organized and helpful, unlike most recycling centres

A high class of waste, tempered by friendly assistant personnel. This one time I was there dropping off some hardcore and paving slabs when a guy pulled up in a car that was jam packed with DVDs, there were tears in all our eyes as we watched him unload them into the general waste skip.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Walthamstow

Zizzi South Woodford

198 George Ln, London E18 2QL, UK – 020 3105 3752

What's not to like about this place? Plenty to choose from on the menu although I would like more fish options and sharing platters are pretty small. There is always a good atmosphere , staff are attentive but not overbearing. It is a place where you know you will have a comfortable experience.

Great servers, after making a small mistake with one order they quickly rectified it and comped some of our drinks.

Shout out to the Jamaican lady that works there - I wish I had her name. She is an absolute asset to the store. She is always polite and super friendly and happy to take you through all the options if you need.

Lovely place. Friendly staff. Been there for ages. It's literally across the road from the train station. Peaceful and doesn't usually have the long queues whenever I've been. It's easy to get a table and same good taste and quality.
