Acer Dental Surgery

2 Roberts Rd, Basildon SS15 6AZ, UK – 01268 541087

I have visited Acer dental surgery many times and have always received a warm welcome from the friendly and professional staff. The dentist is very skilled and experienced and you feel in very safe hands. Happy to recommend this dentist for the high quality of care and personal touch.

I would highly recommend this dental surgery. They were amazing with my children. Very clean and tidy and made us feel very welcomed.

Smile Dental Centre

438 Whitmore Way, Basildon SS14 2EZ, UK – 01268 520555

I am very pleased with the care that I received at smile dental centre. I avoid going to the dentist and was nervous about being treated. However, Dr Sanjay and his team had a very friendly and professional approach. I appreciated the thorough explanation of my dental issue and am very pleased with the outcome following treatment! I highly recommend Smile Dental Centre!

Having not visited the dentist in over 13 years due to a traumatic previous experience, I registered with Smile Dental when a problem arose with my front two teeth. To say that visiting the dentist is a phobia for me is a vast understatement! The staff at Smile Dental are more than understanding and accommodating with nervous patients, they are highly qualified and skilled in their practice, and propose a range of dental treatments that both suit your required dental needs and nervous state. The dentist I see is Sunny Sareen, and I honestly, hand on heart, cannot praise his work and patience enough! When I found out that I needed five fillings (including two rather complicated ones) after my lengthy avoidance of dentists, I was ready to leave the building in floods of tears and hibernate away from the dentist chair for another 13 years. To combat my phobia, Sunny offered me private treatment under conscious sedation in two parts, the first of which I have just had, and I cannot remember a single thing about the treatment – YIPPEE! All of the staff I encountered were fantastic in the run up to, during and after my treatment, and I can honestly say that my fear of the dentist has subsided substantially. I would highly recommend Smile Dental to anyone who fears the dentist.

Langdon Hills Dental Care

Alpha House, 1 High Rd, Langdon Hills, Basildon SS16 6HG, UK – 01268 419845

Very happy with this dentist. Joined with my sons well over twenty three years ago when it was Mr Lee and my sons have beautiful teeth thanks to that man. Now Miss Patel is my dentist there and what a beautiful warm and kind lady she is always ask about my life etc wants been happening and not just to do with my teeth! Would recommend this practice highly.

Dr. Daniel Eriksson and the team were great. Friendly and knowledgeable. Made the visits comfortable even though I hate going to the dentist. Would recommend. Receptionist also very friendly. Overall great service.

Dr W J Degun - The Knares Medical Practice

93 The Knares, Basildon SS16 5SB, UK – 01268 542866

Better than most GP's. I've been with three different GP surgery's before this one. However, waiting 3 weeks for an appointment seems ridiculous. They should have more GP's than two at this surgery - way too many patients registered here. Dr Degun and Dr Macaulay have both been brilliant in dealing with my health problems. Always seem to be sympathetic and show kindness and care for my personal well-being. I am normally registered to Dr Macaulay but Dr Degun had to see me one day and she was brilliant too. Definitely recommend getting in to this surgery if you can. Only ever had one bad experience because of the doctors and receptionists here but it's no wonder when they're so overworked. Receptionists are generally okay but occasionally can be a little rude over the phone. Not half as bad as most GP receptionists though!

Southview Park Surgery

Southview Park Surgery, London Rd, Basildon SS16 4QX, UK – 01268 553292

Great doctors. Debbie on reception is really lovely. Cheerful and very helpful. Andrew is great he sorted where they had stock of one of my meds when there was a shortage. Saw Dr Kamdar today. This is a Doctor who actually talks to you and the important bit he listens to you. In fact all the receptionist and nurses who I have seen they make a good team .

A fantastic service very polite and professional staff.

Laindon Health Centre

High Rd, Basildon SS15 5TR, UK – 01268 546411

I have been with this practice for over 30 years and they have always been terrific. Just had an appointment with Dr Dhanjal and give her 5 stars for both attitude towards me and competence

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.

Basildon University Hospital

Nethermayne, Basildon SS16 5NL, UK – 01268 524900

I spent a morning at the day surgery unit for a diagnostic laparoscopy. I was incredibly nervous upon arrival at 8am but was immediately seen to by staff and reassured I would be safe and looked after. I was treated very respectfully with care and dignity, nurses were chatty and polite, surgeons and anaesthetists were very kind and professional. I soon felt at ease and was taken through to theatre promptly. I woke up with nurses tending to me and other staff members even passing through who said "hello". A very welcoming environment. Thank you so much for everything, I'm really grateful to every single member of staff on hand throughout my procedure.

Arrived at 3am. Staff are lovely. Have found a nice chair with a plug socket for my phone. Hot drink and snack machines take card and free wifi provided. Overall I've found the A&E department very hospitable.

St Nicholas Church

Lovely historic church up a very steep hill

A beautiful setting with commanding views. St. Nicholas Church is a Grade 1 listed building and was built in the 13th century. The chancel and south aisle were added in the 14th century. The timber roof is more than 500 years old, while the oldest part is the nave, dating back over 800 years. At the west end a timber annexe was added, possibly in the 17th century or earlier which became a Priest's House. The church is normally locked but keyholder access is possible.

The Edge Bar & Restaurant

6-8 High Pavement, 1EA, Town Square, Basildon SS14, UK – 01268 280755

What a great night we had at the Edge, Basildon, for my 60th birthday party on Saturday. The manager, Tracey, couldnt do enough for us. From putting up decorations to playing a memory stick of old photos on the walls throughout the party. The venue is clean and modern and everyone said what a great venue it was, that no one know was there. For the price we had a DJ, 2 doorman and a 1.00am bar. They are going to do Soul nights soon as well so will be giving that try. My friend and I had lunch there on the day and it was fab (new chef) refuses to server frozen chips so cooks real ones and they are delicious. I would highly recommend this as a private hire venue for all occasions or just to pop in for a pint. The prices are reasonable and as I said clean and smart (loos are sparkling) Its great to have a venue like this thats local as nothing else in the town comes close to it. 5 stars Tracey...thank you so much for a great party. xx

very spacious with a generous space to dance. staff are lovely and facilities are great. decent prices and would return
