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!

Staff were really friendly and helpful, went above and beyond! The reason for the 3 stars is that the entire interior is very dated. could really use a refresh and then it will be a much nicer place!

Surprisingly helpful and nice staff. Very efficient and good at their jobs. Not what I would have expected from civil servants, but way better.

Horne Street Health Centre

Horne St, Halifax HX1 5NU, UK – 0844 477 3694

Hi I attended the walk-in centre this morning. I had to wait less than an hour to be seen by the Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). I felt that the wait was very acceptable. I would just like to express my appreciation to both the receptionist staff Marion and the ANP Yvonne as the care I got was exemplary . It was very friendly and extremely professional. Thank you

It is not a walk in center. Only on weekends and bank holidays. Google may be misleading.

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.

Calderdale Royal Hospital

Received fantastic care during and after the birth of my son. The nursing staff were amazing and I will never forget my experience in there. I had planned to give birth in another large hospital however so happy I decided to change to Halifax. Only negative I would say is that parking can be an issue in the afternoon.

Excellent experience, staff really helpful. I am dying to find out what kind of butter they gave me for my toast. It's the best butter i ever tasted, can't find any butter that tastes anywhere near that tasty! Please can someone tell me where i can find this butter!??
