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!

Nationwide Building Society comes up on top for the package of insurance covering Worldwide mobile phones insurance, UK and European breakdown and recovery assistance, and Worldwide family travel insurance for a monthly fees of £13. According to Martin Lewis, the founder of MoneySupermarket (MSE), no bank can beat Nationwide on similar bundle insurance cover, saving you hundred of pounds. Once i forgot my wallet and need emergency money, i could withdrew £20 from my account here. This place is newly redesigned and renovated since April 2018. It is all very exciting. At least 1% of Nationwide profits to be donated to good causes each year. Thumb up.

Dental Surgeries

Peachcroft Dental Practice

Suite 4, Peachcroft Shopping Centre, Peachcroft Rd, Abingdon OX14 2QA, UK – 01235 532672

Unlike those who have posted before me, a positive experience. Perhaps a case of the only people who review are those who had a bad experiance? I too have a phobia of dentists, though perhaps not as strong as some. I find it helps to close your eyes. It's worse seeing the tools approaching your mouth, and then imaging what is going to happen. I started with an emergency appointment due to tooth-ache. I got an appointment within 5 hours of my call. The lady dentist put me at ease, and did a quick exam, took an x-ray, put me on antibiotics, and re-booked me in 3 weeks time for an extraction. Needless to say I was more than a bit nervous when the time came to get the tooth pulled. The injections of anaesthetic I hardly felt, though it tasted vile. Perhaps mildly uncomfortable, not painful. After probably 4 minutes of (painless) pulling I was starting to think to myself 'how long is this going to take?' Only for her to say 'That's it, all done.' Not a pleasant experiance, but not unpleasant either. It made me wonder why I waited so long in the first place to get it sorted, as if I had gone in sooner I would almost certainly have had a filling and not an extraction.

Bath Street Dental Practice

6 Bath St, Abingdon OX14 3QH, UK – 01235 520101

Great practice. My daughter loves her visits there! Interior recently refreshed and lovely. Staff are helpful and friendly. Would highly reccomend!

Having recently moved to the area, I was grateful to stumble across this excellent dental practice. Very accommodating! Superb experience all round

Stert Street Dental Surgery

45 Stert St, Abingdon OX14 3JF, UK – 01235 522212

Great dental practice

Dr W D Brace - Malthouse Surgery

The Malthouse Surgery, The Charter, Abingdon OX14 3JY, UK – 01235 468860

I find the staff friendly, helpful and the doctors sympathic and open. My issues are that it is just too crowded, and the whole surgery under so much pressure from sheer quantity of work that it is hard to get an appointment and then, hard to get the follow -ups which inevitably involve the rest of the NHS (surgery or analysis for surgery) so burdened that doing things in a timely manner is now almost impossible. I blame the government not the NHS or this local surgery.

Marcham Road Family Health Centre

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1BT, UK – 01235 522602

I hardly go to my surgery. I have to say over the 20 odd years, I must have visited no more than 20 times. I have no complaints. The doctors are always helpful and friendly and so are the nurses. Only thing is it takes 2 weeks before one can get a non urgent appointment but this is normal everywhere these days. The surgery is clean and waiting room fairly spacious though in these very hot days, it can be rather stuffy. All in all, I am very satisfied with things in general as it is. What's there to complain about?. One considered to be very lucky to have free medical treatment. Let us continue to support and fight for our NHS that's all I can say.

Some doctors are more sympathetic than others. The Self Service Point missed me this morning on 21 May 2018. It had done that once a few years ago. It was frustrating as i dutifully waited for more than 45minutes. Next time if anyone of you out there waited for more than 15minutes, go to the front desk and complain. That is what i was told to do. Short term appointments are difficult to book as bookings can be more than 2 weeks full.

The Abingdon Surgery

65 Stert St, Abingdon OX14 3LB, UK – 01235 523126

Fantastic surgery. The best that I have experienced in Oxfordshire. Very caring and patient centred, I am extremely impressed with all my interactions with them.

Excellent surgery, onsite parking and very clean. The reception staff are very helpful unlike other surgeries in England. The GP's, nurses and all staff generally very talented and happy to help. Best surgery in Abingdon!

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 had to visit the hospital on Sunday from the receptionists to the staff every one is just as you image the NHS at its best the staff that saw me was so empathetic and understanding and so was the X-ray department just as I said the NHS at its best ... I just wanted to say a thank you for all of you genuine kind and wonderful staff

lucky enough I've only been here on the odd occasion, but I can honestly say the service was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful towards me plus considerate and kind.

Abingdon Mental Health Centre

Abingdon Community Hospital, Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1AG, UK – 01865 904894

A really weird place, deathly quiet. Very rare you actually see a patient, just staff going back and forth. Not particularly pleasant inside, no plants, bright colours, just drab and functional. I suppose it's somewhere difficult to like because no-one wants to be there, but difficult to fault as well.
