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!

First class service again from Mrs Morse and the other young lady helpful as usual . I rand Monday with a problem and they saw me 48hoursc later very impressed Wouldnt go anywhere else xxx Pun W

I've just left Hilltop Practice ,and I'm so impressed 10/10 thank you Mrs Morse and Lydia . I wouldn't go any where else . I had two fillings one of them was quite big I was a bit apprehensive but there was no need in fact when the fillings were being done I was that relaxed I nearly fell asleep So If u ever feel nervous going to the dentist don't worry these dentists are just amazing . I never felt a thing PM.HALL

Birmingham Dental Hospital

5 Mill Pool Way, Birmingham B57EG, UK – 0121 466 5555

Went here on Tuesday 13th after 2 weeks of tooth ache you can't just turn up but if you phone 111 they might be able to get in on the same day. I don't like dentists (which is why I have not been to one in 17 years) . From the moment you enter the building the staff are brilliant the dentist reassured me and explained everything to me. Overall I had no problems at all top staff from start to finish so many thanks . Look after your teeth

Helpful and friendly staff - professional experience. Clean and cutting edge modern building too.

Bupa Dental Care Kings Heath

108 High St, Birmingham B14 7LG, UK – 0121 483 4100

Never had a problem always happy to see you and made me comfortable due to beibe scared of the dentist

I had a long procedure on my tooth and I was cared for very well, the dentist and dental nurse that I had were very welcoming. The dentist would go into full detail about dental care and all the infomation that I needed to know. This gave me great confidence. The only thing that I would say is that only one of the receptionist seemed a little moody, on a few occassions. I smile goes a long way. But overall treatment, top class.

Dr P P Borg-Bartolo - Millennium Medical Centre

121 Weoley Castle Rd, Birmingham B29 5QD, UK – 0121 427 5201

My father has been well looked after at this practice. Had it not been the time spent at a routine appointment and expertise of one of the Drs my father might not be with us now. One one occasion he was rung by a Dr to see how he was getting on with his new medication, I do not know of many that would take the time to do this. It is difficult to get an appointment at times, but I don't think this is any worse at this practice than at other surgery's.

Went for my copd appointment which went well, we had a chat about my old job which she gave me more confidence to talk about, the best nurse ever :)

Moseley Medical Centre

21 Salisbury Rd, Birmingham B13 8JS, UK – 0121 449 0122

This has been my doctors for nearly two years and I've had no real issues here. The staff seem friendly enough and as far as I'm aware the doctors fine, I've had no reason to seek second opinions. The 4* is due to the difficulty there can be in getting an appointment, this is possibly a normal issue with doctors, however, a 5* would be exceptional, so it is a 4

A very nice place. Been there a few months. Nice staff and very friendly. Good facilities.

Woodland Road Surgery

57 Woodland Rd, Birmingham B31 2HZ, UK – 0121 475 1065

Been with this surgery for some time now and I can't speak highly enough of them. For me the highest tributes go to the open surgery which means no lengthy waits for an appointment and I've seen a number of doctors there, all of whom seem to have as much time for you as you need.

Brill brill wouldnt go to any other practice . There the best . Receptionists Doctors Nurses Cleaners .

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.

Fantastic' hospital ! Staff friendly and helpful, I'm not a hospital lover, But Moseley Hall' has to be the best ever x

My mother was admitted to Ward 6 at Moseley Hall Hospital. She stayed there for 6 weeks until she sadly passed away on 27th June. Every member of staff that was involved in her care and comfort were amazing. They were all so kind and caring to both my mother and the visiting family. This made the last few weeks of her life as good as it could have been, given the circumstances of her failing health. Thank you to everyone on Ward 6 from all the family of Emily Carlyle.

Carters of Moseley

What can you say about Carter's other than it fully deserves its Michelin star. Despite its acclaim and awards, it'scosy and not at all stuffy restaurant and alongside the food, the staff are wonderful. We had the six course taster, which also included four small bites to start with, and although we were full come the end of the night, it was really well paced. Difficult to decide on my favourite dish as they were all superb. Not the cheapest of meals but you get what you pay for. Would definitely go back.

Summary: Amazing Food was delicious and the service was top notch. We stayed for 5.5 hours and everything served from the gin and tonic starter to the last drop of coffee and spirits was just awesome. This was a great experience and I would not hesitate a second to visit again. Brad showed us the kitchen as a bonus and you can really see his passion for what he's doing.

Birthday celebration at Sabah Sabah in Moseley. Absolutely fabulous. Smallish place with very tasty food and friendly, helpful staff. Portions were more than generous for both starters and mains. There were four of us in the party,we each had different meals all of which were delicious. Will definitely go back.

Food and service both beautiful. Lovely and warm inside even though it was a snowstorm outside!

Royal Watan Kashmiri Restaurant

602-604 Pershore Rd, Birmingham B29 7HQ, UK – 0121 471 1713

Food was tasty and fresh. Most importantly, it was aunthentic. Decent ambiance and great customer service. Would love to visit quite often from now. By the way, the samosa chat was really scrumptious😋.

Let me first start of by saying that this restaurant is absolutely brilliant. The food was absolutely brilliant and the service was amazing. I came here for my birthday two nights in a row and it was just as enjoyable both nights with absolutely fantastic service and the most friendly of staff who made it a very memorable birthday. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone for all occasions.

Nursery and Preschools

Weoley Castle Nursery

Great nursery, entrance for parents is quite small so you may get stuck on a rainy day. But they do some amazing work with the children. Slight improvement needed with parent interaction

Selly Oak Nursery School

26 Tiverton Rd, Birmingham B29 6BP, UK – 0121 472 1700

Amazing nursery! Children were ahead of the curriculum when ready for reception. They care deeply for all families while going above and beyond to ensure every child has the best start to their education in a areas, maths, art, forest school, English all children leave with maths and writing skills

When I initially applied for my son to have a place at Selly Oak Nursery School, it was because it was an outstanding rated nursery and I wanted my precious 3-4 year old little boy to have the best start to his educational life as possible. What struck me as unique about the nursery was its clear emphasis on education for the future, whilst at the same time nurturing each child in the present as an individual who could be all that they choose to be. I was not looking for a nursery, I was looking for a lot more than that. I was looking for a nursery school, and as such wanted a place that was more than just a childcare provider and that offered my son the structure in education that he would need to prepare for the transition to Primary School. I had been continually impressed since his admission to the nursery with the staff, activities, learning opportunities and care given to my son. Before he began at the nursery he was a very different child; he was incredibly shy, barely talking much at all to anyone outside of his family group, and slightly delayed in his speech and communication. What I wanted for him was a place he could call his own, where he would learn for the future and be part of an inclusive community of children and teachers. This wonderful place provided him with that in the bucket load, and I will always be grateful for that. He is now a 5-year-old who has almost finished Reception at an outstanding primary school, who is confident both in terms of the rigours of phonics and mathematics, but also importantly with himself as an individual. The nursery gave him the chance to know what it is to be part of a school community, one where he was cared for in a genuinely positive and encouraging way, and gave him the chance to flourish. Selly Oak Nursery School turned my little boy from a child that was introverted, shy, and anxious, to a child that is supremely confident, infectiously curious, and incredibly keen to learn. The nursery embraced anything that interested my son, and opened his eyes to so many new interests ranging from minibeasts, 3D shape drawing, mud kitchens, bread making, role play, sitting down and reading stories, construction... I am so proud of him, but more importantly he is proud of himself, which is such a happy thing for me to see. My child would not have flourished half as much in a structured Primary School environment (where he is now meeting and exceeding expectations) if it were not for the approach Selly Oak Nursery School took with him and his learning – so much so that my youngest daughter will be attending the Nursery School in September. This place is more than just its outstanding OFSTED report; it is an outstanding community of teachers, parents and children, with a strong belief in the importance of education for all children. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.

The Oaks Day Nursery

Bristol Rd, Selly Oak, Birmingham B29 6LG, UK – 0121 414 7999

I worked there on two occasions as an agency cover. I was welcomed by the staff, and staff members wanted me back. If only I didn't leave the agency. The staff are dedicated and passionate, and make the job seem very easy. I am not surprised that the nursery recently got an outstanding in their most recent OFSTED as they do deserve it.

Public & Preparatory Schools

King Edward's School

Edgbaston Park Road, Birmingham B15 2UA, UK – 0121 472 1672

I have two sons at the school and both have benefited from the academic focus the school provides and the opportunity to develop both intellectually and socially. For a provincial day school, its outlook is remarkably non-parochial. It fosters a tolerant and almost international outlook. It has yet to reach a needs blind admissions system but for a UK school gets close. The fact that it offers a generous assisted places scheme speaks volumes about its ethos and commitment to social mobility and inclusion. It is well known in the Midlands but deserves more national recognition. My boys are lucky and thankfully they realise it.

My son moved here from The Priory School, and we can honestly say we are the happiest we've been with the school, environment, and teachers. This school is much more selective (academically) than The Priory School, and so my son finds he is regularly challenged in classes to achieve highly, which he enjoys. A more intelligent surrounding, and would willingly allow him to board here, if it were a boarding school, that it.
