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!

Local Chambers of Commerce for BH8 8QS. 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!

Bournemouth Borough Council

Town Hall, St Stephens Road, Bournemouth BH2 6DY, UK – 01202 451451

Trouble is, because the Conservative councillors keep being voted in they don't feel they need to make an effort. Ours at Littledown seem reasonably helpful. The council is strapped for cash now due to central government cuts and the effects can be seen.

They do a good job in making sure everything runs well

fantastic place! Had an implant done by the lovely Simon. brilliant results! recommended!

Bournemouth Dental Practice, Old Christchurch Road

27 Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1DS, UK – 01202 553919

I have been a patient of Doctor Yazdani's for several years and I have to say that the service is fantastic. So much so that even after moving away from the area I kept her as my dentist. I cannot fault her professionalism and she always shows great care towards me and my teeth. All of the staff I also have met are professional and deliver a great level of customer service. Easily the best dentist I have had.

I am so pleased with my visit to this dentist. The reception team are lovely and always welcomed me with a smile. The dentist and her nurse are very good explaining and keep you at ease. You really feel you are being catered for. Couldn't fault it. Thank you to all the team.

Wooton Lodge Dental Practice

717 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6AF, UK – 01202 394587

Been going to these guys since I was a kid which is like 15 years, always been great. I have Dr Francisca Alcada-Ribeiro, I'm nervous about these things and she always makes me feel relaxed! Also see the Hygenist every now and again who is very good.

Escellent caring skilled dental treatment., carried out by professional friendly dentists and back up team.

The Panton Practice

Gervis Rd, Bournemouth BH1 3EG, UK – 01202 411700

Even with an appointment I have some waiting time which seems to have improved. Reception welcome varies but healthcare workers are very welcoming. Yes the buildings are old but I'd rather have money spent on care/services than decor. I have good service across the board but then I have no high expectations, demand nothing but good care, and try to manage my own needs with support/advice. I'd recommend the practice for it's level of care and services.

GPs professional, approachable and patient. Locum/trainee? doctors have always been good too. Receptionists do their best under frequent pressure. Not easy for them. Walk-in sessions for urgent cases brilliant, take away worry and stress knowing you can be seen. Would have given 5* except for a few gripes (bit don't let them put you off). a) Surgery is past it's sell-by. Far too small, out dated, unwelcoming. b) Have to go elsewhere for blood tests, X-Rays, ultrasound etc. (and then unless urgent can't get the feedback for 2/3 weeks). Would prefer a GP led superclinic with more facilities (providing easily accessible by public transport/car). c) Can't see medical records online - at least appts and repeat prescriptions are now. d) How about evening and weekend surgeries!? Maybe that would alleviate the crowding in the waiting room (and make patients happier). e) The waiting room and entrance can get too crowded. Sitting in a circle in a small area staring at other ill patients is really unpleasant. f) The blood pressure machine drives everyone mad. Yes, good to have it, but everyone seems to struggle. The receptionists must be immune to all the complaints about it by now.

Beaufort Road Surgery

21 Beaufort Rd, Bournemouth BH6 5AJ, UK – 01202 433081

Dr Mitchell is THE best doctor on the planet. He looked after me whilst I was going through severe chronic pain and depression. If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't be here writing this now. He listens to everything you say, and if needed he carefully explains your diagnosis or treatment in a way that you can understand, and not just in 'doctors language'. As a surgery as a whole, I find the staff polite and friendly in general, and they've also just changed the flooring from carpet to a wooden type finish which makes the whole place look a lot cleaner and welcoming.

If it's urgent they will fit you in on the same day.usualy don't have to wait long in the waiting room.lovely receptionist always helpful

James Fisher Medical Centre

4 Tolpuddle Gardens, Bournemouth BH9 3LQ, UK – 01202 522622

Always had good service from Reception & doctors have all been caring & carried out their duties efficiently.

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.

Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital

67 Lansdowne Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1RW, UK – 01202 291866

Exceptional service pre and post theatre. A massive thank you to Mr Nick Davies the consultant surgeon, and all the Purbeck section team for looking after me with 5 star service. I can't list all the names as nurse said wouldn't I remember and she was right. Anyone receiving treatment here will not be disappointed

First class if you can afford it. Like being in a hotel.

Kings Park Hospital

Gloucester Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JF, UK – 01202 303757

I have to counter the negative comment. I am not going to say mental health services are great in this country (what-so-ever). All the cuts and society not rating mental health issues etc.. But I feel the people at CMHT Kings Park (with what they have) really do there best and i am not sure I would be here without them. I have the best psychiatrist ever (Dr Schrader) and had some great care workers that all do care..

Local hospitals - community hospitals and hospitals with A&E departments for BH8 8QS.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

30B Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6NU, UK – 01202 292564

I have been a member of the Church ofJesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) since late 1963. I was working in in a shop in Kinson, an area of Bournemouth at that time. Two LDS missionaries had come into the shop to buy something and had a conversation with the shop assistant who was an Australian. The upshot of this was they left a book called Meet the Mormons with her.. She was not really interested in reading it . I worked in the workshop above the shop and on occasion it was necessary for me to go in the shop itself to get something or other. On this occasion she asked me to give this book to a lady in an upstairs office, which I did. She also wasn't interested in looking at it so I left it on my work bench and carried on with my work Lunch time came around so I sat down to eat my sandwiches and as I had nothing else to do I started to read the Book. I got really interested in it and asked the Australian girl if I could take it home with me to finish reading it. She agreed and I took it home and finished it. About ten days later she contacted me and said that there were two Americans in the shop who wished to speak to me. I went down and spoke to them and we conversed about the book and what I thought of it.. The rest is history, Yes I did eventually join their church and I have been a member for over fifty years now. My wife and I go regularly to Church nearly every Sunday health permitting. The views of the Bournemouth Chapel you see here are lovely . The building consistent of Chapel for worship, a cultural hall , a kitchen, classrooms for. Sunday school and other meetings, toilets, a library, a walk in font for baptisms and rooms to change in. A large car park and at least two offices. Most Latter Day Saint Chapel's have these facilities? I accidentally came across this site which has asked me to is rate and review it. So I am giving it ten out of ten. And my review you have just read. Just a little bit more. There are other Chapels within our area. Poole, Christchurch, Weymouth,, Jersey, Yeovil, Salisbury

This is a Christian Church. Everybody is welcome.

6 Riverside, Wimborne Road, Bournemouth BH10 7BP, UK – 07990 938371

"Cheaper than a skip" competitively priced and you don't have to fill it yourself either! No fuss no hassle no aggro, very polite and 3 well organised chaps and two trucks worked well together very quickly and efficiently under Sam's direction. I was really pleased with the job which was handled very sensitively and considerately as it was a family bereavement and so difficult for us clearing away loved ones furniture. I highly recommend Sam and his professional service.

Friendly staff, product prices reasonable, I've been using their services for around 10 years now and can't fault them. Keep it up

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bournemouth

Lola's Spanish Tapas Restaurant

Bournemouth BH2 5RT, UK

Very friendly staff. Super quick service. Quality of the ingredients looked/tasted like supermarket value, but still ok.

Really loved their food, the atmosphere. Completely recommend it, can't wait to be back again!

Korean Grill Restaurant

223 Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1JZ, UK – 01202 312132

Second time coming here. Both times have been great! The BBQ is in the middle of the table and you choose what type of meat to go on it. It's all really tasty and good value. Much recommended!

My first visit to Korean Grill was unplanned as we arrived Bournemouth quite late and were really starving, so we tried this restaurant without searching any reviews. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience and we went back sometimes. Great food, nice staff, reasonable price. This was kind of family owned business with a few staff, so it took time to be served if they were busy. But it was worth the wait. All the dishes were served hot and delicious. Our favourite dishes apart from the BBQ are: bibimbap, seafood pancake, spare ribs soup, spicy thick rice cake, kimchi soup. Highly recommended.

Maru Korean & Japanese restaurant

182 Alma Rd, Bournemouth BH9 1AJ, UK – 01202 536760

I drove past here so many times, always meaning to go in. When I finally did I was not disappointed. Really nice little restaurant with tasty food. We will be going back for more.

Tried the bibimbap because I wanted to try something Korean. Excellent portion and the staff was really friendly. Quick service and great quantity - and my Korean friends recommended this so I would definitely recommend this place!

Nursery and Preschools

Tiny Tots Nursery

4D Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6NG, UK – 01202 299415

Tiny Tots is a wonderful nursery and pre-school. I couldn't praise it highly enough. I have 2 daughters. My eldest attended from 11 months to 4 years old and she loved going there. My other daughter is only 4 months old and I hope to send her there too when I go back to work. Diana who runs the nursery is extremely organised and good with the children and all her staff are brilliant. Everything is provided for you so as a busy working mum you don't have to remember nappies, or pack food etc. They follow the EYFS and you get excellent feedback about what your child has achieved and what they will be doing each week.

Wonderful place ! Vanusa de Aveiro

Tops Day Nurseries - Tops Boscombe

4A Wolverton Rd, Boscombe, Bournemouth BH7 6HT, UK – 01202 720111

Nursery Rhyme Playgroup

26 River Way, Christchurch BH23 2QP, UK – 01202 482648

This pre school has been so good, my daughter has loved it there and all the Aunties are lovely. I don't think I could have felt happier leaving my daughter anywhere else. I cannot rate it enough! 5 gold stars all around! I am so sad they are closing and I won't be able to take my son there. Everyone I know who has had a child attending this pre school speaks very highly of it and I couldn't agree more. Thank you so much to Aunty Angela and all the staff for a really good service! We will miss you all dearly xxxx
