Local Chambers of Commerce for OX14 1HB. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Great dental practice

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.

Saint Helens Dental Practice

7 E St Helen St, Abingdon OX14 5EG, UK – 01235 521129

Not been to a dentist in two years! They were fantastic. Full inspection and a lovely clean. I'm so happy I am going to go back for a filling.

Dr Elspeth A. ALLAN (f) BSc, MB BCh, DRCOG, FP Cert, DFFP, DFSRH

45 Loyd Cl, Abingdon OX14 1XR, UK – 01235 522379

The doctors and nurses are extremely helpful at the Long Furlong Medical Practice. They are all pleasant, always professional and I have always received excellent treatment and advice. The reception staff try and accommodate patients wherever possible although it is often difficult for them to find appointments in such a busy Practice but it is always done with good grace and courtesy. I think that I am very fortunate to be a patient at this Practice.

As a retired gp's daughter I'm pretty fussy about doctors. This is a fantastic practice, exactly what the NHS should all be about. So organised, efficient, really can't fault them. Brilliant, thank you

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.

The Abingdon Surgery

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

Was fast tracked as an emergency during morning surgery with acute breathing difficulty. Absolutely first class receptionists and GP (who had never seen me before) . Excellent treatment and ongoing support for the weekend ahead and into next week. Am SO relieved I am a patient with this surgery!!!!

Another fantastic experience of this surgery. The waiting time for an appointment is reasonable, my GP is lovely and she always has a solution for the problems I go in with. Today I had a prescription and referral even before my official appointment time of 8.30am!

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.

Abingdon Community Hospital

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1AG, UK – 01865 904346

Thank you for seeing me so quickly at a busy time. And thank you to the staff who gave a thorough, caring and positive review of my situation and got me the treatment that I needed. I can't say I would recommend it as a place to visit, because I hope that no one needs to go to hospital at all, but if you have a medical problem and a choice, thus is a good place to go.

Very friendly staff, efficient service and very easy to get to. It also offers 30 minutes free parking which is very useful when attending the Minor Injuries Unit.

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.

Come here and try something different! Lebanese service is the best service - all smiles. Cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Very good food, can be fast or slow, whatever you ask for. We had a lovely relaxed meal here with some excellent Lebanese wine. Get the set menu (for two) for a taste of everything, or if you are choosing yourself I recommend a dish with Lamb! Finish it all off with a refreshing mint tea. Absolutely recommend!

Lovely little place with great food and friendly staff.

Nursery and Preschools

Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool

Culham Science Centre, Thame Ln, Abingdon OX14 3EB, UK – 01865 408128

My daughter was in the toddler room, but also interacted with the baby room and the pre-schoolers and I feel the nursery is excellent in every respect. They were very helpful and attentive to my daughters particular needs. The staff were friendly, approachable and left me with no worries when leaving my daughter. One morning my daughter had slept through lunch so when I collected her after her morning session they had saved it for me to take home for her, so I can honestly say I’ve seen the food and that too is of an extremely high standard (which was quickie polished off when we got home). One thing I loved about the nursery was the outdoor play areas, children outside every day, but also that the toddler room had its own area but at times all rooms played together in a much larger environment. I feel this is brilliant not only for social interaction but for bringing on development, especially as my daughter did not have an older sibling. If I could have kept my daughter there longer I truly would have.

I am not sure if you have any questions please let me to get the intended recipient you are not the intended recipient you are

St Nicolas Pre School & Playgroup

My son attended St Nicolas Pre School in 2015/16, and my daughter a few years before that. The staff are fantastic, always doing a great job in keepng the children happy and stimulated, while teaching them so much and preparing them for school. Thank you St Nics.

Both my children have attended St Nicolas Preschool (2010/2011 and 2015/16) and they loved it. All the staff are great and I couldn't have asked for a better start to their education.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Abingdon School

Park Rd, Abingdon OX14 1DE, UK – 01235 521563

Amazing

Overall good experience despite a destinct lack of interest in the syllabus. If you want to be taught how to pass exams then this is your choice. If you want to develop a love of learning, you will find this to be a fairly irregular trait among pupils. Sporting and arts are very well catered for with the only downside being along the same lines as just mentioned i.e. already interested and willing students are very well catered for while the unsure and unsteady are likely to be cast aside in favour of winning; merely taking part is not regarded as highly as it probably should be and this, in turn, leads to these students being ostracized even further by both teacher and fellow pupil alike.
