Fantastic service! I had my first dental appointment in years and Dr Ravi made my experience very pleasant, gave me an in-depth review of the health of my teeth and gums before proceeding to further treatment as required. 5 stars and highly recommended!

amazing dental practice very pleased with over all result came in for a private filling and it looks like an actual tooth i can not tell the difference, from entering the surgery the receptionist made me feel very welcome and at ease as i am a nervous patient and the the dental nurses are very smiley. all round welcoming dentist will be attending again

My first visit and i was very happy

Bowling Green Surgery

1st Floor, 29-31 Bowling Green St, Leicester LE1 6AS, UK – 0116 204 7240

Really good service and friendly. I've seen the receptionists have to deal with very rude and impatient people, which they dealt with in a calm manner. People are far too critical of the smallest things when it comes to Doctors and the NHS, be grateful for what we have in the UK and support your local GP.

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.

Leicester General Hospital

Gwendolen Rd, Leicester LE5 4PW, UK – 0300 303 1573

A fantastic local institution that has ably served the local community for over a century. It's worth waiting here if it means you see world class practitioners who are not going to fleece you in the process.

I have just come out of Leicester General after treatment for a bladder tumour and was very impressed by my treatment, both surgery and nursing. However when it came to leaving it would probably have been easier to escape from Colditz. Why when the nursing is so good and the attention from consultants is brilliant can the discharge procedure be so chaotic? I was told I could leave at 12.45 on Monday and that it would take a few hours to get the procedure in place .I asked for an estimate of time and was told by a ward sister that the discharge letter would be with me by 4.00pm.Why 31/4 hours? I was asked by the sister if I needed medication to take home and by another nurse on a separate occassion. My problem was that I live in North Linolnshire and I had arranged for a friend to fetch me and I needed a rough time to save me having to wait about 7 hours as the trip for him takes about 3 hours so I could ring him in the hope my discharge would coincide with his arrival. I asked every now and then how things were going and was told that a nurse was keeping her eye on it as the original sister had left . At 4pm still no sign of the letter and my friend had arrived in the car park so I asked again and was told that the letter was being dealt with in a way that suggested not to keep bothering staff. At 4.20pm I went back to the ward desk and spoke to a different sister/charge nurse and asked what I had to do to get out. She asked me if I needed medication to take home and I said no I didn't to which she replied that in that case I could leave and that they would send the letter by post and said that this was the normal case. I have to say that she was very apologetic ,particularly when I said that I had been asked at least twice before about medication. Why can't this procedure be put into ward training and standardised or some system be in place to speed things up as it rather spoils what had been a very good experience up until then?

Leicester Royal Infirmary

Infirmary Square, Leicester LE1 5WW, UK – 0300 303 1573

My daughter was admitted to ward 11 on 23/09/2017 for a day case removal of tonsils, everything went very well I was VERY pleased with the whole day and care of my child, the ward seemed very clean and tidy with VERY helpful staff. She has been home nearly 24 hours and making a GREAT recovery, I think ALL the staff need a pat on the back and a BIG thank you from me and my daughter.

Had my second baby at LRI. The birth centre was clean, the staff were polite and kept me calm and I was able to leave the hospital on the same day

wonderful church! I advise everyone to visit this church. I myself come from Belarus, has been in this church in 2007 with a group of children from Belarus. I loved this church. and preaching, singing, and everything is beautiful! Indeed, in this church feel the presence of God. every time I remember this church. want to stay there again, this is my dream. blessings of the church and spiritual growth in Christ!

A marvellous church. Bible believing and despite the title Evangelical in doctrine. There is almost nothing of the "gifts of Pentecost" here, which is a good thing. You won't find any writhing around and crying out here-at least not normally, The Minister is very keen on Hymns and enjoys leading the service with his guitar .Often he will carry on with the Hymn even when it is finished-again no bad thing. Sticks to Biblical truth and is a very warm and welcoming church. A true gem of the Lord.Highly recommended.

Taylor Road Primary School

53 Taylor Rd, Leicester LE1 2JP, UK – 0116 262 4597

Capable and hands on Senior leadership management, excellent, helpful and friendly staff: teachers, academic support staff , office staff and non academic staff all play their part to make the school an excellent and nurturing environment for our children thus the extraordinary performance of the school. I recommend it to everyone but it comes with a Warning attached : if you'll get placement for your child in the first place.

very good school in all fields,teaching wise very high standard (which reflects in Ofsted reports!),head teacher Mr Hassl is one of the best head teachers iv come across, teachers are very good,students well behaved, reception people very friendly and helpful and these are only a few excellent qualities of the school! me, my husband (who's also parent governor in Taylor Rd school) and my 3 kids favourite school which they have been at since the beginning, my eldest son is currently in yr 5,daughter in yr 4 my second son in reception and baby son on waiting list. This school is also in very high demand, i would and DO recommend this school to anyone and everyone.

Leicester Islamic Academy

320 London Rd, Leicester LE2 2PJ, UK – 0116 270 5343

My two kids (year 2 & Reception) has started this school. I had few concerns in my mind related to last Ofsted report (2015) but school has undergone some good improvement ever since then. Some internal references have told me that a new principle & head teacher are already bringing this school to next level proved by latest ofsted inspection report issued about this school. They didn't increased overall rating but said school has improved in its facilities & teacher's training.

My 2 kids have been at Leicester Islamic Academy for a number of years and I am very pleased with the school. The teachers are passionate and caring and really committed to do the best for the children. The recent OFSTED report was very disappointing, but it highlighted some of the areas of the school building which have been a little unloved, and the school have either addressed or are in the process of addressing these.
