Fantastic local service. The staff are very helpful, informative and welcoming. I hate the 25 min+ call center to make the bookings but the service in store is great.

Good bank. Great customer service. Usually busy

Nice big , clean branch. Sometimes busy and sometimes u need wait ages .

Had a long and drawn out matter to sort out. Was dealt with by Hannah who was absolutely excellent and explained and talked through what was going to happen and how the system worked. Left feeling like I had been treated really well and the issue sorted. Hannah is a credit to the bank. Thank you

Dental Surgeries

Affinity Dental Clinic

Suite 1E, Southgate House, 88 Town Square, Basildon SS14 1BN, UK – 01268 526262

Would highly recommend this dentist. I have been going for years, but before going here I was terrified. They always put you at ease and there is always someone to hold your hand if you are worried. All procedures are explained.

As someone who was always nervous about going to the dentist, I found this clinic really friendly which makes it a bit less nerve racking when going to an appointment. They would explain what they were going to do and how they would go about it so that I knew what was going on. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone.

Langdon Hills Dental Care

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

Regarding my appointment yesterday. I was very impressed with Langdon Hills Dental Care because I was in urgent need to be seen and was given an appointment within a few hours and the service I received was fantastic by both Mr Lehane and Pauline on reception.

Very friendly and approachable with a completely professional feel. I felt comfortable and in good hands.

Smile Dental Centre

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

I would highly recommend this dental surgery. If you are nervous give them a try, you won't regret it. Sunny has been so patient and kind due to my dental phobia, I am no longer nervous and have total confidence in him. I didn't visit a dentist for years so had a lot of work done (with no pain). Everything was taken at my pace and explained fully. I have never felt rushed and my last two check ups have shown up no problems due to his advice and care. Sedation is a private option here for nervous patients too. I have to mention Erica, the amazing receptionist who is so kind, efficient and friendly. You will always get a friendly service here and an excellent dentist - thank you very much 😊

Smile Dental Centre is a superb dental practice. The dentists have comprehensive knowledge and experience. All the staff are very friendly, patient and professional. They treat you with dignity and make you part of the treatment. There is lots of opportunity to ask questions and I ever felt rushed. I can only say great things about this practice and will never go anywhere else. Keep up your great work!

Murree Medical Centre

Pattiswick Square, Basildon SS14 2RJ, UK – 01268 520552

Absolutely wonderful young lady at reception. Can't praise her enough. Had to call her for directions as I don't know the area. The website for this medical centre had directions option. These directions are wrong. They do need to add the full address/street number to actually find it. The directions took me the opposite direction. Upon finally finding the centre, only by asking directions 3 times, I was actually told by a young man that I was parked outside it! It looks like a derelict building. Overgrown shrubbery and weeds to nearly the height of the building and windows caged up. No clear signs to say it was the surgery. Absolutely a massive shame, because inside was exceptionally clean, greater by the wonderful young lady, altho she had to stand and move from her desk to see the front door. (Might consider moving the window/desk/reception for security and safety of staff. Not all that walk into a medical centre are friendly. Over all. I can't thank the practice for all their help. Wonderful staff. Please if the council are responsible for the outside grounds, shame on you. Fix these grounds, these guys are wonderful. To the lady on reception I thank you for your patience in helping me finally locating you and your kind professional nature your a credit.

Knights Surgery

Abraham Dr K K

30 Long Riding, Basildon SS14 1QY, UK – 01268 285285

Lovely staff! Lovely doctor!

This surgery is fantastic. I moved from Aegis Medical Centre when my Dr retired. I thought they were good but Long Riding is 100% better. Very professional & very thorough. The receptionist are also very good and friendly. Excellent practice.

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

This is an amazing hospital. Whenever I have had to go there I found the staff friendly, welcoming and the hospital itself spotless. For all those that give it bad reviews because you waited too long in A&E, understand what that means. Accident and emergency. If you go in with a broken bone that is not life threatening, it is an accident and you may take a while to be seen. The reasons for this are: 1. People go to A&E when they have no reason to do so. They could go to a minor injuries unit. 2. There will be a nurse/doctor doing different roles in A&E. One of them could be flooded with a list of people as long as your arm, another could so few that they could count in on 1 hand. 3. If someone comes in with life threatening condition, they will ALWAYS get priority. In my opinion nurses in general are overworked and under paid. The NHS needs more funding, but in the mean time, this hospital is operating as best as it can 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Had a planned elective surgery,cannot fault staff at Basildon hospital who facilitated my surgery.i was kept well informed about time scales and the day went smooth even though I was very apprehensive about it. Special mention to the Day unit and Theatre recovery staff who made me feel at ease on the very anxious day.

The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre

Basildon University Hospital, Nether Mayne, Basildon SS16 5NL, UK – 01268 524900

Thank You Doctor Albanese, for fixing my broken heart (15th february mechanical heart valve replacement), and giving me a new lease of life. You looked after me so very well when i had my open heart surgery, which you stepped in when my original surgeon couldn't do it. You are truly an amazing surgeon, and without you my four children and 12 grandchildren would have been very lonely. The care you gave me was the best ever and also your anesthetist Maria, who went over and above to help me, I wish to thank the whole surgery team and chelmer ward (patricia) was great ensured my discharge went smoothly. for their help and amazing care especially those who looked after me. Thank You for the icu team for taking great care of me and ensuring i get to spend many happy times with my family for the foreseeable future. I am eternally grateful to you all, and please keep up the great work you do at 56 i am happy you saved my life. Thanks so much from me and my family. xxx

Had an aortic dissection in Nov 17. Mr Singh and his team saved my life - can't speak too highly of them and the care I received. NHS is wonderful!

Kingswood Baptist Church

2 Codenham Straight, Basildon SS16 5DH, UK – 01268 271707

Lovely welcoming atmosphere. This is what church is all about. Attended a baptism there and the congregation, staff and pastor were friendly and welcoming to a complete stranger. It felt as if I was walking into a group of people who knew me and my family. We were blown away. If the church was not an hours drive away we would have signed up there and then. Doctrinally sound and an exemplary biblically accurate message and attitude. Could not recommend them highly enough. If you live nearby pop in.

Friendly and welcoming, challenging teaching, classes for the children, vibrant mix of all ages and all cultures, especially in the Sunday morning service. Sunday evening is quieter. Both services are followed by refreshments. House groups in the week, plus weeknight meetings for children and teenagers and a thriving mother and toddler group. Further details on the website.

St Nicholas Church

Church Rd, Basildon SS15 5SZ, UK – 01268 411190

Historic building, Great views over Laindon and Basildon, growing community of Christians. Worth a visit..

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.

Loverly American style food and fantastic service both times we have been here (mid week and a Friday night). The dogs love it too as they always get a bag brought home due to the great portion sizes. Its not gourmet dinning but we think it's better than TGIs which is clearly the market it's aiming for.

Very nice place to eat. Food is great but we were sat very close to the door and it was left open so there was a draft
