Waltham Forest Council

Waltham Forest Town Hall, 701 Forest Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 4JF, UK – 020 8496 3000

I've had contact with many different departments in Waltham Forest council as an active member of the community and a business owner in the Borough. I have been very impressed by the consistent, high level of professionalism and sincere concern for the community shown by all staff. It's not an easy job keeping so many, diverse people happy, but I honestly find that Waltham Forest council works hard to do right by the people who live here. My husband and I are very grateful to them for their efforts and hope that they'll keep the standards high.

Dental Surgeries

Forest Dental Care

73 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 4SA, UK – 020 8520 5533

Excellent dental practice I can advice anyone who has a deep fear of the dentist, or indeed of any dental work. Forest Dental Care, is a practice that has exceptional dentist,s and staff. They are friendly and caring, putting patients at ease before any work is carried out. The reception staff are so friendly and helpful, even when the practice busy. Myself and all our our family have attended, both at the dentist's previous practice and now this one, for over 18 years. As a very nervous patient i can not recommend this dentist or indeed their colleague,s highly enough. The dentist,s will always make sure you have all the details of the work you require.and the reason for the work to be carried out, regardless if your a NHS patient or a private patient. The costing. Which as i am now having extensive dental work, as a private patient under going ( cosmetic treatment ) I have found to be more than reasonable. Mrs s stavri Visited in August 2017. Posted on 10 August 2017

Definitely recommended I have been going back to the same practice for almost ten years and would highly recommend this dentist. I have always had a pleasant experience and left a satisfied patient.

Wanstead Village Dental & Health Centre

Chingford Dental Surgery

31 Chingford Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 4PW, UK – 020 8527 9062

Addison Road Medical Practice

46 Ravenswood Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 9LY, UK – 020 8430 7171

I've had a great experience so far, no problems getting appointments either!

Dr J Bailey

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

I am surprised at some of the negative reviews... I cannot praise the surgery and staff highly enough. They are always friendly and professional and it truly is a family practice as Dr Baileys family also work here. Keep up the good work guys.;)

I've only been with this practice for a few months but am so glad I changed to here and would like to extend my thanks to all of the staff. The receptionists are always helpful and have a smile, and the Doctor is always friendly and puts you at ease. Some people seem to have a slight grievance about waiting times but in my opinion this is to be expected in a busy surgery and is far outweighed by the great service you receive there.

Dr N K Lodhi - Queens Road Medical Centre

48 Queens Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 8PX, UK – 020 8520 2625

Friendly receptionists. Same day appointment ts available

The reception is very friendly and helpful. Not really need to visit the place too often, but happy with them so far.

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.

I have visited Whipps Cross Hospital on number of occasions including hospital stays. I have never felt worried while I am there as they took good care of me. I have always found every staff really caring and nice to me. The doctors are great and take time to listen to you and answer your questions. The A&E is great at prioritizing emergencies and are always try to see kids earlier. It is really assuring that the hospital is so well managed and organized. Keep up the good work. Always recommended.
