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!

Concord Medical Practice

Victoria Rd, Washington NE37 2PU, UK – 0191 417 3557

I've been using Dr Sen's practice for around 8 years now and would recommend it to anyone. I was surprised to see negative reviews on Google however many of them refer to Dr Ray's practice which is in the same building but is not "Concord Medical Practice". Dr Sen's practice is based where Dr Fairs used to be. The reception staff are brilliant. Very friendly and not at all rude in person or on the phone. The practice uses a computerised check in system too so you can sign yourself in on arrival. I've never had an issue getting an appointment and when I physically couldn't get to the practice one time I rang for advice, a doctor left a prescription for me to pick up when convenient. Many years ago (2010) the practice also went out of their way to help me, arranging alternative midwife appointments for me (more recently this service has moved to the Galleries Medical centre). Our children are registered here and the nurse practitioner is great. I've also had blood taken by the nursing team and gyno appointments and have always had positive experiences. The car park is quite small but the building is so close to the two big free car parks that I just park in one of those and it couldn't be better placed for public transport. Whole heartedly recommended.

Dr Stephenson and Partners

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.

Our Blessed Lady Immaculate Catholic Church

As a parishioner at this parish, I would recommend this church. I have felt very than welcome by the priests. Not only will you receive good Catholic teaching here but you will find good Liturgy here as well. Fr. Mark is absolutely wonderful. I do find Fr. James message very simple to understand and theologically sound. The priests are very friendly. There's a nice traditional choir and some times contemporary choir at the 11:00 Mass, and at 18:00 is the Sunday evening Mass. If you want to know more about our parish, please come and see!

Most friendly of churches.

Frankie & Benny's

Unit 12, The Galleries Retail Park, Washington NE38 7RW, UK – 0191 497 2300

A standard sit down restaurant for a quick bite. Wouldn't really take a lady out for a romantic meal as very loud at night. Not a lover of all you can eat salad bars. More of a take your mates out on the lash and have a quick meal before the drinking starts properly place to eat. Not a romantic restaurant to take a loved one. Food is okay, fairly standard pizza, Italian euromeals.

We had breakfast on a Saturday morning. My sone had waffles with banana. He said if was good but needed more bananas. My wife has smashed avocado which she thought was perfect. I had the breakfast stacker and it was nice and very filling! The service was a bit slow considering there was only a few tables being served. Also I noticed in the gents toilet that the soap dispenser was so close to the tap it was very difficult to dispense the soap..

Oxclose Community Nursery School

40 Brancepeth Rd, Washington NE38 0LA, UK – 0191 416 6767

I moved my son to Oxclose Nursery for 5 terms after being at private nursery from the age of 1 and sending him there was the best decision I ever made. The Headteacher and staff are all friendly and approachable, and they worked wonders on his behaviour and social skills. He was very happy and well-cared for there, and the extensive range of activities available were both fun and educational. He loved being there and didn't want to leave to start primary school. We regularly pop in for visits and the staff are always interested to hear what he's been up to and what progress he has made since. A great place for children to begin their education!

Excellent nursery, the staff are brilliant. My kids love it here.
