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!

Bupa Dental Care Pontefract

28-32 Market Pl, Pontefract WF8 1AT, UK – 01977 702289

Happy with my treatment and service.

Excellent care (NHS) for myself and my elderly mum. Dentist Carlos is very professional and nurses pleasant. Have recommended this practice already. Best dental care I have experienced in many years, very well done.

Ropergate Dental Practice

47 Ropergate, Pontefract WF8 1JY, UK – 01977 703413

Fantastic dentists with a real commitment to their work and the NHS. I have been going for over 15 years and never a complaint. I see richard, my wife and family

Wonderful practice, lovely receptionists and great dental staff. Highly rate this practice and this is coming from someone who dislikes having dental work done. I'm happy to recommend to both friends and family!

Pontefract Dental Care

1A Charter House, Jacksons Court, Pontefract WF8 1DE, UK – 01977 780077

I was in need of some emergency dental work, having not been to a dentist for a number of years due to nervous and past bad experiences, was delighted with the care and services I received for John and all the team. I was made to feel relaxed from the start and all the way thought my pain free treatment. I would definitely recommend this dentist. 5☆

I've recently become a patient at this dental surgery and would thoroughly recommend it. Due to a terrible experience with my previous dentist I hadn't been to a dentist for three years until I *had* to go due to a broken filling, and chose this dentist as my new surgery. Despite the fact that I was literally shaking with nerves and cried at the dentist as soon as he said hello, Gareth did a great job of making me feel at ease and relaxed. I've had a few appointments now and I've been highly impressed with the treatment (both dental and customer service) each time I've been.

College Lane Surgery

College Lane Surgery, Barnsley Rd, Ackworth, Pontefract WF7 7HZ, UK – 01977 611023

Can always get an appointment, everyone who works here is super friendly and helpful.

An excellent NHS surgery. Only drawback is sometimes a long wait to get an appointment with a specific doctor, but you can always see someone else quickly and same day in a genuine emergency.

St Thomas Road Surgery

St Thomas Rd, Featherstone, Pontefract WF7 5HE, UK – 01977 801363

There isn't anything negative to say about this surgery. Nothing. It's not my practice, it's a close family members who I take and also speak to them frequently. Every single doctor and nurse to the office staff are wonderful to speak to. If i request a call....they call. If I've requested a home visit, they do it without a million questions. Some receptionists I understand have to be inquisitive to then book you to the right gp and it can be frustrating, esp if you don't want to discuss you're ailments but they are kind and not too intrusive. I know one surgery that get abit frosty if you don't answer their questions....you won't get that here!!. As their workload increases they are all under immense pressure yet at St Thomas's you will be treat with dignity and respect. Poss to give 10 * I would have.

Dr J M Taylor - Stuart Road Surgery

Stuart Rd, Pontefract WF8 4PQ, UK – 01977 703437

There isn't anything negative to say about Stewart road surgery. I moved due to being informed they are fantastic with children. I wasn't disappointed. From gps to staff behind the scenes to nurses and receptionists. They can't do enough for you. Thank you SRS. May you have a fab new year
