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!

Advance Dental and Orthodontic Care

Lakin Drive, Highlight Park, Barry CF62 8AS, UK – 01446 489137

I visited Advance Dental after being recommended by a friend around 2 years ago for full braces. I looked at a number of Orthodontists, had a few consultations and even though the dentist was around a 45 minute drive from my house it was without doubt the best I had looked at. When your spending money, especially on your teeth it's best to find a place best suited to you. The full experience from start to finish was amazing, Andy and all the girls at the practise are absolutely lovely. I've since recommended to family members and friends and they've gone on to have treatments like teeth whitening etc. The girls were brilliant at fitting my appointments around my busy schedule. As well as a brilliant service my teeth are actually perfect now! I love them! The after care package is brilliant I couldn't recommend enough.

Where do I even start... After years of not having a dentist due to a 'childhood horror experience' I had to find a dentist as I was having some problems. I was petrified, I was crying before even giving my name at the desk! When my name was called I was blubbering like a baby, sweating and trying to hard to remember to breath. I'll always remember the dental nurse - Suzanne, she held my hand while the dentist was coaching me to open my mouth. I can't describe or put into words the steps it took but, I now go to the dentist on my own without anyone having to hold my hand & if and when I need work done I never have any problems. It's like all the staff have had specific 'calming' training as EVERYONE is welcoming and so understanding. The dentist and dental nurses really do put you at ease and go that extra mile to ensure your ok throughout your appointment. I cannot recommend this place or rate the staff highly enough for what they do. They really are the 'calm and caring' dentistry! They will do anything to help calm and relax you even if it means talking rubbish and holding your hand � (Even after all these years Suzanne will still talk and place her hand on my mine to which I am still grateful for)

Highlight Park Medical Practice

Lakin Dr, Barry CF62 8GP, UK – 01446 720100

The reception staff are all very nice. I haven't had a problem with any of the Drs. Getting appointments isn't too bad but we all know the NHS is stretched and there's not always appmts when we want them. I've been with this practice 20 + yrs.

Waterfront Medical Centre

Heol Y Llongau, Barry CF63 4AR, UK – 01446 734131

Dave Bolwell Physiotherapist, excellent & friendly service. Started in a load of pain & now 95% recovered. Took a couple of weeks but well worth it. The combination of physio & acupuncture worked really well.

Fantastic NHS practice , doctors are all very thorough , caring and actually take time to listen . Receptionists and admin staff always very friendly but efficient . Have appointments on a regular basis and never have to wait long to see a doctor . Been a patient here over 5 years and would never go anywhere else now.

Porthceri Surgery

Park Cres, Barry CF62 6HE, UK – 01446 735365

I've been a patient of the practice for 18 months or so now. As a diabetic I'm fairly regular and get to see them during both the quiet and busy times. Admittedly it can sometimes be difficult to get through for an appointment but this is the case pretty much wherever you go. The professional opinion of Dr Coleman has always for me been spot on as with Dr Baig. Urgent prescriptions have always been on time and sometimes quicker.And despite the considerable workload, the receptionists and other patient-facing staff have always been 100% . One of the better aspects of moving to Barry from Milton Keynes.

The Amy Evans Centre

190 Holton Rd, Barry CF63 4HN, UK – 01446 733331

I get great support and have been for a few years, but previous 'health care professional' I saw wasn't all that great. Depends on who you have and how you click, same goes with any health care professional.

Court Road Surgery

29 Court Rd, Barry CF63 4YD, UK – 01446 733181

I have been a patient for many years at this practice and they have looked after me every time I needed help. The staff are professional and pleasant, and understand the urgency or "not" of the issue, so not to tie up the doctors with time wasters when others are actually ill.

All Saints' Church

3 Park Rd, Barry CF62 6NU, UK – 01446 734629

We sat in the garden on Saturday evening and ate our fish from Irene's . Very serene. Noticed the tree in the sw corner. Suggest you cut all ivy at base as it is strangling the tree. The ivy is a parasite. Part of the tree is till healthy. It can revitalize if it does not compete with the ivy. We'd have come Sunday but our three weeks in Wales is over and we fly back to Canada at 7 am .We liked all the memorial tributes in the garden. Probably cost a fraction of what our columbarium cost. Our funeral industry is very profitable at the expense of Jane q public.Blessings.Callie and Al
