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!

Dental Surgeries

Wickford Dental Practice

68 London Rd, Wickford SS12 0AN, UK – 01268 761638

Excellent experience here. Reception are polite and helpful, and both the dentist and assistant I saw (regretfully cannot remember their names) were professional and created a welcoming, calm atmosphere. I had some work done and experienced no discomfort. Despite being a little bit of a nervous patient in general, I was made to feel relaxed and in good hands! Modern, clean facilities...all around best dental practice I've ever been to.

Modern friendly dentist practice. Clean and tidy with kind helpful staff and dentists. I have gum disease and was well taken cared of :). Very pleased with my appointment.

Cygnet Dental Practice

102 Swan Ln, Wickford SS11 7DF, UK – 01268 733078

Nabiha, my dentist at Cygnet is the best I have for as long as I can remember. I have Arthritis in my neck and jaw, she allows for these issues when I see her. She explains to you very well all she is doing, and has a very pleasant manner.

I saw Dr Ghuman after not going to the dentist for a while. She was very helpful, polite and clear in her advice to me. My teeth have never felt better. Have recommened dr ghuman to friends and family.

Wickford Dental Health Centre

24 Lower Southend Rd, Wickford SS11 8AW, UK – 01268 733718

I tried this dentist for the first time. I am very nervous and phobic of dentists and i wasnt really put at ease as i felt very rushed and couldn’t explain myself properly as to going forward with treatment. I will be trying another dentist in wickford. But reception staff was nice and the practice was modern and clean. The dentist was clearly under pressure and was rushing.

They helped me when I needed it. Essentially, I had a tooth infection that I was fighting with lots and lots of painkillers, I had final year project work for uni due in. By the time I finished my work the pain was completely unbearable, painkillers were doing nothing and I hadn’t slept for ages, I was going out of my mind. I contacted the surgery and they removed the tooth the same day.

The Shotgate Surgery

340 Southend Rd, Wickford SS11 8QS, UK – 01268 561888

Whilst not immune from the general funding/staffing problems that all practices have, this surgery operates pretty well and has thorough and caring doctors and other personnel.

Never understand the bad reviews this surgery gets. Always have got an appointment within a couple of days of needing it. And then doctors are doctors :-)

The Applewood Surgery

Market Ave, Wickford SS12 0AG, UK – 01268 562444

I do not understand all the negativity directed at this fantastic surgery. The reception staff here are polite and helpful, waiting times are almost non-existent and the doctors are compassionate, informative and reassuring. I've been in with a whole variety of things in the last six months and never left without the necessary medication or onward appointments, all of which get organised quick sharp.

Moving over from Swan Lane surgery has been a very positive experience for myself and my family. I have always found the reception staff polite, professional and helpful, even when I've heard them under pressure. I have always managed to get an appointment when I needed one (not always the case before) and found the doctors to be professional and caring.

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.

Find Recycling Centres

Total Waste Management Ltd

Hovefields Ave, Basildon SS13 1EB, UK – 01279 444406

A no nonsense professional operation. They were on top of the house keeping and the yard was well ordered and tidy. I arrived early and was booked in to load a 20ft container.

I hired a skip from Total Waste last month and their service is brilliant. After I called to enquire, they delivered the skip the next day and even offered if there was anything immediate that I needed help loading into it. I was allowed to keep the skip for as long as I wanted - I just called when I had finished with it. I kept it for a week. They came to pick it up the day after I notified them I was ready for it to be collected. Again, the guys were really friendly. What's more, I got a very good price. Would definitely recommend and use again

Prezzo Wickford

54-, 56 High St, Wickford SS12 9AT, UK – 01268 768590

A really beautiful interior, spacious and modern. Good location on the high street with pay and display car park behind. Food is same as every other Prezzo so no surprises there: well made if not shocking but good stuff to catch up over and enjoy a relaxed family / friend dinner. Service at the Wickford branch when I went was erratic. I must have been served by seven different people, and some of them were definitely unfamiliar with the menu and had to query what we'd ordered. Not dreadful and pleasant enough but not quite professional. A few mistakes with the food but quickly rectified.

Food, services, atmosphere and location couldn't be faulted. One of the nicest meals I have had in a long time. Staff her helpful and attentive without being in your face, we had a 40% discount code off mains so cost of the total meal was very reasonable. Thoroughly recommended.

Pisces Fish Bar

25 The Broadway, Wickford SS11 7AD, UK – 01268 732001

Nice staff and even better food. Made a mistake of going to Fishandchicken once as live close by but will always drive past and go to town.
