Lloyds Bank

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

"Really helpfull staff "Nice and helpful staff."

This branch has definitely been improving over the 13 years I have lived in Walthamstow Central. Vince Tagliarini, Charell Medley, Andy Mark Russell (Mortgages) Galia Piskova (since left), and Nahid Iqbal (Business Banking, since left) have all given me very good service over the years. The branch was renovated a couple of years ago and now looks fresher. I have several personal accounts, loans and cards with Lloyds Bank. I used to do my business banking exclusively with HSBC, tho have since moved most of it to Lloyds Walthamstow. I gave the same feedback in branch in HSBC Walthamstow FIVE times to various people over the last 4 years regarding their automatic deposit facilities and STILL nothing has been done to date: 1. their ONLY cash deposit machine rejects too many notes, and 2. the card on the ATM showing which way to insert your card is still upside down. In contrast Lloyds Walthamstow has TWO automatic deposit machines and is much less problematic re: rejecting legal bank notes.

Abbey Dental Walthamstow

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

Great service from everybody very helpful and my dentist Maryam B was very Professional and compassionate. Thank you

Went along as I wasn't happy with previous dentist who was insisting I had treatment privately. Advised dentist at Abbey that I wanted tooth extracted as I'd been told there was a crack in it and after a similar problem with another tooth I didn't fancy going through the work if it was only going to be for a few months. Was told there was no crack and given the option of extraction or having a metal inlay, as it was a molar I opted to try and keep the tooth. Once work started it was discovered I did indeed have a crack and an inlay was out of the running. After a few more sessions for root canal treatment I finally had a crown fitted, on the NHS. Other than not spotting the crack that the previous dentist had seen I can't fault the treatment I received. I was particularly impressed that I wasn't pushed down the private route and as much work as could be done was carried out under the NHS and each step was explained prior to work being done. Reception staff are also impressive, responding efficiently and quickly when I managed to lose a piece of tooth whilst eating some popcorn.

The Firs

26 Stephenson Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 7JT, UK – 020 8223 9840

I've got nothing but positives to say about this surgery. I was dreading the first time i had to use the surgery because of the terrible reviews. The staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have known - reception and doctors- . I got an emergency appointment straight away, and the GP even rung me yesterday to see if I was ok off her own back. She was caring and compassionate and very knowledgeable.

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.

The A&E children's department are wonderful. The Nurses and DR's went above and beyond to make sure that my son was well cared for. We were seen very quickly and my son was admitted to the Children's ward for immediate treatment. We could not have been in better hands. The whole team are so kind and helpful. I cannot thank them enough.

All the doctors, nurses and attendants were lovely and smiley, really nice people. Yeah, things sometimes things take a little longer than you'd like, but they're clearly doing the best with the resources they have and I believe they are doing a brilliant job.
