Dental Surgeries

Paddington Dental Practice

17 Craven Rd, Paddington, London W2 3BP, UK – 020 7723 6106

Don't really leave reviews but i just had to this time because credit is due when deserved and the service from Dr Gursharon Dhariwal was 1st class. I'm not a fan of any medical professions because they scare the life out of me but she made me feel so at ease and calm I was so thankful. Thank you again Doc!

I can’t recommend this practice enough. Treatment is world class and staff are very helpful and kind. I no longer dread the dentist!

Kings Dental Clinic (Hammersmith, Olympia)

36 North End Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 0SH, UK – 020 7603 5211

The only reason why I'm visiting Kings Dental Clinic its because Dr Haider Razban I have been seeing Dr Haider since I was 17 years old and he is the one who only know how to create nice smile in my face when he done with my tooth even when I'm doing operation in my tooth outside the UK I always seek for his advise many thanks for DR Haider Razban and King Dental Clinic for keep my smile alive . Kind regards Tarek Alpatchatchi

The best dental service I had in 7 years of my life in the UK. I came here for a simple check up and was very pleased with the professional treatment I received. Highly recommended!

The Bush Dental Clinic

278 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 7JA, UK – 020 8743 0585

I have been coming to this dental surgery for a few years now. It is a lovely clean and modern surgery with good professional dentists who are very friendly. The receptionists are very helpful and friendly too.

When it first arrived it was considered an extremely swanky dentist because it was new, had screens everywhere and state of the art equipment.lts even swankier now with wands to administer anaesthesia if you're needle phobic. Has a full range of periodontal, orthodontic and cosmetic services so you don't need extra referrals. I'm a dental mess at the moment so lm looking to reapply here after a ten year gap. I need special help with anaesthesia or my arms freeze as well as my mouth and my gums require a major overhaul. Will let you know how l get on. Being accepted as a new patient may not be a given.

The Bush Doctors

147 Shepherd's Bush Green, Hammersmith, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

Great surgery, amazing staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Pamini is always thorough.

Well, the receptionists are not quite friendly and a bit miserable (i work at a reception so i know), i can only count 1 who is really lovely. First time there, i had to wait 1h after my appointment time to be seen, i know there is always a waiting time but i've never had to wait that long. The doctor did her job, however rushed me because she was running late and i understand it happens but i told her i have the right to get an appropriate appointment and not be rushed. 2nd time there it was just for a blood test and i also had to wait 40-50min which is surprising since taking blood doesn't take that long. I'm only going there because it's close by but not sure if i can recommend it. I'll book another appointment with another doctor and see how it goes. If you don't want to wait i'll recommend booking early morning appointments.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

11.10, 20 Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2 6LG, UK – 020 8712 9378

Great service! I only had a few hours in the UK between meetings and managed to get an appointment on the day exactly when I needed it. The consultation was thorough and helpful. Perfect.

A U. S. tourist staying in a hotel near Paddington--shortly after 8 a.m. on a Friday I found the clinic online, and I was able to book an appointment for 9:30 A.M. that day. The clinic is inside a high-rise building near the train station. Once inside and after circumnavigating the elevators, the receptionist and doctor were very friendly and waiting for me in a pristine clean area. I received good professional treatment, and was in and out with my much-needed antibiotic in less than 20 minutes: 55 pounds for the 15-minute appointment, plus 10 pounds for filling the prescription for me 'on the spot.' I was certainly pleased with the rapid response and good care that I received.

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.

My 3 years old son had sleeping study at this hospital on Monday 12/02/2018. It was my first visit. We received an excellent care by doctors and nurses. Nurse's particaly were amazing and they have done everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Well done!

I have experienced RBH since 1994 first with my wife and then as a patient. The medical care is outstanding in every way, the staff caring and professional and the ambience is friendly and reassuring. Sir Reginald Wilson Ward is the best place in the world to be if you are ill. Please fight to keep this wonderful institution alive for the future, it is irreplaceable,

Charing Cross Hospital

Fulham Palace Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 8RF, UK – 020 3311 1234

Very promptly attended to my needs. Seen to discreetly and smoothly. Empathetic Doctor who couldn't get the printer to print my prescription so went and got the medication for me and I took it there and then, follow on care was queried to see if I'd understood what he'd relayed to me. Great walk in clinic that kept the queues down and explained that there where three different queuing system's and what position I was in my particular queue. Thank you for such a great service which actually challenged my belief that I'd been reading about in the news regarding excessive waiting time's on the NHS SERVICE!

Mustard Restaurant

98-100 Shepherds Bush Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W6 7PD, UK – 020 3019 1175

Thanks to Emily and her team for catering for an excellent birthday party for me. Great food and service and it all went like clockwork. Was a great venue for a group, but also recommended for couples etc.

Enjoyed our meal here. I did find the restaurant slightly under staffed and so it took a while to order and for the food to arrive. When the food arrived it was tasty. It was quite quiet for a Friday night. More tables empty than full. They had a set menu which was £15.95 for 2 courses and £17.95 for 3 courses. Mains carried in price between about £12-22. Small selection of beer and wine by the glass, carafe or bottle. I would return and would recommend it.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

68 Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4HP, UK – 020 7352 4441

I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant, which is my favourite in the world. The food (flavour, creativity, presentation) is of the highest calibre, the staff is well informed, kind and attentive, the atmosphere is elegant yet calm and intimate due to the small number of tables, and everything is impeccable- right down to the pristine kitchen to which I was pleased to be offered a visit... it’s absolutely perfect in every way.

This place is simply amazing and the food... oh...my...god! I didn't know it was possible for food to taste that good. Classy, delicious and not a bad price considering what you actually get. I highly recommend a tasting menu if they have one on

Côte Bistro - Kensington

47 Kensington Ct, Kensington, London W8 5DA, UK – 020 7938 4147

Visited for my husband's 30th birthday to have a delicious breakfast to start off our busy day. All opted for the breakfast meal deal which is great value. Eggs were cooked perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was fantastic. Will definitely keep Côte in mind next time we are near one and fancy a nicer breakfast than normal!

We prebooked lunch on a very busy Saturday. The staff coped very well with plenty of smiles and assistance with menu choices. We shared a bottle of house white wine, it was very good. The lunch time special of half roast chicken with sliced potatoes and green beans was very tasty. The lemon sorbet was a light and refreshing dessert. Good value for money and would recommend. Only negative would be very tight on space.

Nursery and Preschools

Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy

Dolphin House, Riverside West,, Smugglers Way, Wandsworth,, London SW18 1DE, UK – 020 8877 1135

My son has recently started the nursery in the toddler room, really friendly environment very resourceful and captivating. The room is very inviting including staff. Management seem very efficient and caring as myself and my wife have been extremely anxious about leaving our child with his specific needs. The new manager Evelyn Herrera is extremely approachable and I already feel at ease with her around. My wife explains she was also very reassured by her with our child's specific needs. I appreciate all there hard work especially in the last few weeks and continue to support as they continue to flourish.

Our daughter has been going to busy bees wandsworth since she turned 1 and she is very happy there. The staff are all very friendly ,caring and absolutely great with the kids. The nursery has recently been refurbished inside and outside and looks fantastic, with nice big playrooms, brand new toys and a nice big outside space. Thanks for the amazing job you do, our daughter has really gained so much from being at your nursery, she surprises us almost on a daily basis with something new she learned. Happy Toddler = Happy Mommy & Daddy. X

Minors Nursery School

The girl I look after has attended Minors Nursery School since September 2017 and she loves it. Everyday she is happy to go to school and I can see how comfortable she is with the Minors team. The teachers are very reliable, caring and professional. Often she comes home with her little arts and craft, which are nice and creative. The atmosphere with other parents and nannies is very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend this nursery school, it is fabulous.

A wonderful and caring nursery, my daughter loves it here. The teachers are very kind and always smiling : )

I used to be a student there, in 2010-2011 and I've gotta say one of the best moments of my life were at ICS! Miss it a lot...

Sacred Heart High School

212 Hammersmith Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 7DG, UK – 020 8748 7600

Schools a lovely old building not one of those plastic new ones ,teachers are strict yet lovely new science block is great although I'm a bit worried that it is near a main road ,school uniforms nice.

Bousfield Primary School

This is an excellent school, it provides so many people with help and learning opportunities. I loved my teachers Mr Fox and Mrs Pears for the kind natured teaching skills . I struggled after leaving this school as other schools can't compare or care for my learning. Needs. Barn dances in the hall was one of my favourite times there. Thanks.

This is an amazing school, full of light, green spaces and playgrounds, set in a lovely neighbour. I have 2 kids there and I am so impressed by the way they are tough, and the children are so happy to go to school. Staff is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, the head teacher is clearly doing a great job!

Fulham Prep School

200 Greyhound Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 9SD, UK – 020 7386 2444

Large independent school in London. It has 2 campuses — prep and pre prep. School admin team is good and supportive. It has good housing system. Good advice on next school. It is a popular school in Fulham area. Good school to start with but not cheap.

High turn over if staff. In four years my child has had 3 new teachers, ... needing to learn the ropes, making mistakes, not informing us of information needed. A bit fed up. Pastoral care is not very good, I would say nor is academic, seeing how most pupils did not get into there first follow on chosen schools. Sports is definitely pretty bad, go to a any sport match against another school. Having said that the new head is proving to be good.
