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!

Banks

Lloyds Bank

Commercial St, Halifax HX1 1BB, UK – 0345 300 0000

A friendly place and one of my favorite places to bank!

I like Lloyds, they are friendly, a little old fashioned (in a good way) & reliable. Been with them forty years, I wouldn't change. When I have needed them, they have been there for me

HSBC

7 Commercial St, Halifax HX1 1HN, UK – 0345 740 4404

Machines allow you to deposit cash (it will count the money and provide a receipt of the amount) and cheques so quick. However not enough machines. Has a lot of unused space. Staff friendly and efficient.

Nationwide

1-2 George Square, Halifax HX1 1HF, UK – 0800 554 0828

Small local Nationwide branch. Very helpful and professional staff.

Building Societies

Leeds Building Society

31 Back Commercial St, Halifax HX1 1BE, UK – 01422 362359

Not as good as it was, staff don't seem as customer service focused as they used to be. Often only one person on the counter with other staff in the background even when people are waiting. Will personally use the Huddersfield branch when possible.

Yorkshire Building Society

12 Corn Market, Halifax HX1 1TH, UK – 01422 229168

very nice people

Nationwide

1-2 George Square, Halifax HX1 1HF, UK – 0800 554 0828

Moorside Dental Practice

1 Forest Grove, Keighley Rd, Halifax HX2 8AU, UK – 01422 229616

We have been using this practice for a long time. This weekend my 8yr old daughter had an accident and broke her front tooth, as you can imagine as a parent I was devastated as this is her adult tooth, it's amazing how self conscious a child of her age can be! We visited Gethin today and he has given my gorgeous girl her smile back! We are so grateful. I highly recommend this surgery!

Moorside Dental Practice is committed to delivering the highest level of dental care to patients in Halifax. Having worked closely alongside Gethin Jones, Principal Dentist - I know first hand how much he cares about his patients and his dedication to excellent patient care.

BSA Dental Clinic

24 Clare Rd, Halifax HX1 2HX, UK – 01422 350938

Wonderful practice where nothing is too big a problem. Gail the practice manager is an amazing woman with a can do attitude. The dentists are great and the work they do is up to date and of a very high quality.We were delighted to be welcomed back to the practice after two and a half years away in the Highlands. Many thanks and keep up the good work all of you.

Top Dental surgery – OK find me any surgery or any dentist that isn’t swamped with calls. BSA are very accommodating, they even give you txt reminders in case you forget and the chappie I see is fantastic, believe me he has his work cut out when I turn up. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Kind, professional and courteous.

Station Road Surgery

Station Rd, Sowerby Bridge HX6 3AB, UK – 01422 410433

The service is actually really good. It's the timing what stopped it being 5/5. My dad is really ill so we took him down to here and it was over an hour and a half until we left. Three times he was in the waiting room as they had to do different things. Another issue is when a lady came down with her 6 month old baby, she was a little late due to traffic and did not get seen to for ages

caring and helped me so much when other services let me down.. appointments are easy to get here compared to other places. if you let them know your situation they accommodate well for it .

Queens Road Surgery

252 Queen's Rd, Halifax HX1 4NJ, UK – 01422 330636

very busy surgery not always easy to get an appointment but easier with online service. Very good doctors

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: Emergency Room

Salterhebble, Halifax HX3 0PW, UK – 01422 357171

I was treated in rhesus A and E for a dislocated shoulder yesterday and the nurse looking after me called Martin was amazing. He had really good manners and made me feel very at ease. Even though it was extremely busy and I could tell he had his hands full he still found time to offer tea and a smile. Extremely hard working and reassuring. Thank you Martin.

A lot better and cleaner hospital than Bradford royal infirmary. You can easily find where you are going. A lot better curtains. The lifts have room and always work. Get seen to a lot quicker. Can find smoking shelters easily. Good idea. Parking is good because we can always find a space.

Excellent school Diverse members of staff especially Miss Rizwana Ahmed the deputy head in that she' a member of the LGBT community, just goes to show you can't taint everyone with the same brush. Well done Miss Ahmed

Both my girls have started this school on 13th March 2017... the school itself exceeded my expectations above and beyond from what my initial thoughts and experience of primary schools were .... also my girls (6yrs and 5yrs of age) have had absolutely no difficulties in settling in and this due to the staff and their fellow class mates which ease my worries as a parent having pulled them out of their previous school mid way through the academic year... fantastic move.. wish I had done it sooner... I have full faith in the school that my girls will now achieve their full potential and much, much more.
