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!

10 mins waiting and here are my first impressions: everyone is really friendly, the practice is very clean! Keep up the good work! not seen a dentist the though....

Been using them since I was youngster. Always short problem out

Craigentinny Dental Care

57 Duddingston Crescent, Edinburgh EH15 3AY, UK – 0131 669 2114

Having severe phobia of the dentist I was very scared to go. I had been to another practice before who said I needed a root canal and 2 more fillings. As I am cannot afford private care my options were limited. Miriam was absolutely amazing! Not only did I not need a root canal, I also ended up paying way less than I had been quoted by the other practice. Miriam and her lovely assistant walked me through my options and put me at ease throughout and didn't mind taking it very slow and at a pace I felt comfortable. She always assured me we would stop if I wanted to. I have been to a lot of dentists in my life but this is the first where the numbing injection was entirely pain free and I didn't feel a thing of the procedure even with a big deep filling! I am so very very grateful to Miriam and her assistant for the wonderful care they have given me, It really does make a huge difference! Thank you so much

Several months ago, I was referred to Craigentinny Dental Practice by my regular dentist for root canal treatment. I have a strong needle phobia and am a nervous dental patient, so this type of procedure would be almost impossible for my regular dentist (who is not a sedation specialist) to complete on me. From the moment I met Martin and his team, they put me at ease, and together we worked out a plan for the sedation and treatment that was safe, effective and minimised my anxieties. Martin talked me through a range of options, taking into consideration my specific needs (impact of sedation medications on breastfeeding, etc). On the day of the appointment, the team at Craigentinny were comforting, professional and efficient. My husband, who was accompanying me, was kept engaged and informed about the treatment and how to care for me afterward. My own experience of the treatment was limited to the initial sedation process (a drink-which dramatically reduced my nervous reaction to the needle), because (as hoped for) I felt no pain and have no memory of the actual procedure. After the procedure, the team at Craigentinny kept in touch to make sure the treatment was effective and my experience was good. I felt listened to and well cared for throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend Martin and his team highly enough, especially to patients with severe anxiety or phobias. The fact that I have no apprehension about returning for further treatment (this time for a cracked molar) says it all!

Duddingston Dental Practice

2 Southfield Loan, Edinburgh EH15 1QR, UK – 0131 669 8829

Excellent dental practice, been going here for years. Have used the Dentist and Hygenist. Always friendly and professional

The Baronscourt Surgery

89 Northfield Broadway, Edinburgh EH8 7RX, UK – 0131 657 5444

Just recently moved to the area, and was fairly ominous about registering at the practice after reading alot of reviews but I can honestly say from my first encounter the staff receptionist included were all very polite and extremely helpful. I wanted to make an appointment after registering but was informed it takes two days to be registered. After explaining the situation the receptionist very kindly said she would get me registered so I could make an appointment the following day. The next day my appointment was made without fuss and I was seen by a very professional doctor.

I have been with this surgery all my life, almost 34 years. The original old doctors were amazing but they have now all retired or left. There are a couple of doctors there who are very helpful but like other reviews have said, the receptionists let the place down. They sound aggressive over the phone, answer you back face to face when I was nothing but polite. No need for this. Asking simple questions seem like an inconvenience. I have waited an hour and a half past my appointment time to find the receptionist hadn't marked me as waiting. This has happened twice that i can think of. I don't think I've ever been taken on time. 30 mins plus past your appointment time is normal but don't dare be 1 min late or the aggressive receptionist will have something to say! If the receptionists were as they should be then i would have gave 4 stars but i have instead given a generous 3 stars

Excellent.

Southfield Medical Practice

132 Mountcastle Dr S, Edinburgh EH15 3LL, UK – 0131 549 7340

I have been a patient at Southfield Medical Practice for over ten years. I phoned all the local medical practices before making my choice, and I based the choice on the phone manner of the receptionists, who are kind, friendly and helpful, and the ease of their procedure for getting repeat prescription. So far, I have always found the doctors and the nurse courteous, helpful and appropriate, and the receptionists are absolutely lovely. One of the receptionists has worked there for years and she's kind, warm and friendly, with a lovely smile which makes every visit a social, enjoyable pleasure.

Realy good attention, attentive and accessible Doctors, above average booking system and non hostile reception team

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.

Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

51 Little France Cres, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Visited a friend here today. Very easy to find. The car park is enourmas. Not sure about cost of parking since we were on motorbikes and they are free to park. Place was busy but we found the signage to find wards etc excellent. We did get lost but staff were very helpful and all do a fantastic job, both of looking after patients, and of keeping visitors right.

Old Dalkeith Road, Craigmillar, Edinburgh EH16 4TB, UK – 0131 529 3030

Congratulations to the staff who have taken the time to make a little garden area around their cabin. I dropped some rubbish off yesterday and it brightened a dull edinburgh evening to see the colourful display. Well done. Staff were pleasant and helpful as usual.

Staff are usually helpful, and it's well organized and signed. It's very convenient to drop lots of rubbish for recycling.

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Fillyside Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6RD, UK – 0131 529 3030

I have always found most of the staff here very helpful. However, I tried to phone direct about something and was sent to a general council number and put on one of the council's interminable loops of numbers to press - none of which were relevant to my query. A direct number and a person to speak to would be far more useful.

Helpful staff! Nice layout. Very quick

Junkbuster Recycling

8C Bath St, Edinburgh EH15 1EY, UK – 0131 210 0102

Fantastic hard working people. Great value service. Life savers to help get the house cleared for a move. Really friendly helpful people - couldn’t have managed without them Quite simply, excellent in every way!

My initial call was dealt with promptly & efficiently and a date/time arranged that suited me. Alfie and the team arrived on time and removed unwanted furniture quickly and with a smile :-) I was assured that if it could not be reused elsewhere it would be properly recycled. I'd have no hesitation in using their friendly service again. Thanks guys.

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.

Always liked the Ladynairn but on the last couple of visits there were a lot of things not available on the menu (very early in the evening). I chose the Caeser Salad which had a good portion of chicken but the lettuce was warm and the only other thing in the dish was croutons. Dont think I will be ordering it again!

I had excellent Sunday roast. Also the staff is very friendly but the reception needs someone who's fast.
