Really like the personal customer service provided in this branch, the staff all get to know you and have a conversation with you, it's more than just a transactional service when you go in. The special part is Sweet Friday, when they put out little bowls of munchies for the customers. Favourite staff member would be Sarah, very pleasant and very helpful. You go for the money and stay for the service.

love my local branch for professionalism, helpfulness and great service

Local Chambers of Commerce for TA2 7SY. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Parkfield Dental Surgery Ltd

13 Parkfield Rd, Taunton TA1 4RL, UK – 01823 284843

I have never had such an amazing service with impeccable professionalism and talent. The end-to-end experience; having a root canal and crown fitted, was virtually painless, stress free and the results: stunning. It's like having my original tooth back. The dentist was incredible. Simply incredible. Watching her and her team work was comparable to a dance. In sync, as a team and flawless. Why would I EVER want to g anywhere else.

Been with Parkfield for over 25 years now and never had any reason to think that I would not receive anything but the very best of care. Their service is outstanding and they always go out of their way to ensure that they do everything possible to give you the very best of care.

Never had anything done. Eroded wisdom tooth that had to come out. Took 2 friends with me for moral support and my legs were shaking in the chair (embarrassing). Mr Patrick talked me through the whole process, reassured me everything was going to go smoothly. Did not feel any injection or anything... very surprised when he said β€˜all done’ Very happy, will never be scared of going there again. πŸ™‚

French Weir Health Centre

French Weir Ave, Taunton TA1 1NW, UK – 01823 331381

I've read others poor reviews and really feel that all of those who are well looked after by the surgery should take the time to drown it out with positive reviews!!! I understand peoples frustrations can often lead to them wanting to vent, I've had those feelings myself with the NHS at times. But I would stress to anyone loookng at this surgery that they have taken such good care of me for a long time. I am currently under the care of not one, but SIX specialists. This allows me to give some very good feedback on how the surgery deal with a variety of serious issues affecting health, and I can say that in every case they have been exemplary. I like everyone, have to speak to reception about what ails me to speak to a doctor. When you take the time to work with them and communicate politely and clearly they are a great team and will always get the help you need. Be it a nurse practioner or an emergency appointment with a doctor. As a point of first contact I not only think they are friendly and helpful, but professional and not at all intrusive if you don't wish to share everything. The doctors themselves are all so lovely, not one of them has ever been anything other than engaging, friendly and sympathetic. Never making me feel like I'm a burden or that anything I have to say is unimportant. They listen and care and will use all their knowledge to help you. I think its fair to say that when you are going back with what requires yet another specialist, i would not blame them for treating me like an attention seeker or a time waster. But not once have they done this. they have worked with me to get to the root of what affects me, and managed my care to ensure I can live a happy healthy life. I owe this surgery a lot for the help they have given me, and I hate to see it attacked online in what is unrepresentative of what you can expect to find there. More of us need to back this surgery, it is an asset to the community and full of people trying their very best to look after the multitude of people they are responsible for. Yes we all want things immediately, but in a country that has its health system under immense stress, we have a surgery fighting to loook after us all, whilst suffering under years of pay freezes and spending cuts. Good on you guys for a well managed and effective surgery. Thank you.

Blackbrook Surgery

Lisieux Way, Taunton TA1 2LB, UK – 01823 259444

The receptionist seemed to be overwhelmed between the phone calls and the patients coming in. Quite short and not very warm, which is bit annoying when they should expect customers to be in need of reassurance and support. The doctor was not very qualified and clueless. He tried but I guess his performance was not up to an acceptable level, not when you claim to be a doctor.

Services very good ...reception leads ver helping ..thanks so much for everything

Dr S Reilly - Crown Medical Centre

Venture Way, Taunton TA2 8QY, UK – 01823 282151

I cant thank this surgery enough. The staff on the front desk and the doctors were outstanding in seeing me and sorting me out. Im not registered at a doctors in taunton as only just moved here. But they were all first class. Just want to pass on my gratitude for all being so kind and caing.

Musgrove Park Hospital

Parkfield Dr, Taunton TA1 5DA, UK – 01823 333444

I have been attending Musgrove Park Hospital for nearly 15 years as an outpatient, so probably in the region of 40 appointments during that period. During that time I have never been disappointed by any aspects, all the staff have been brilliant, pleasant, polite, helpful and very caring. On my last visit I attended the X-ray dept for a Barium Swallow. My appointment was for 11am, I was back in my car by 11.20, on my way home. How good is that? At a time like this, when the NHS are struggling to operate, our hospital and all the staff deserve a very well earned pat on the back.

Had spinal surgery and the treatment received from nurses and health care staff on Hestercombe ward was first class could not fault them one bit. Keep it up. M.H

Bpd sufferer= they turn their back on you with a click of fingers. At first they seem very helpful and caring then they turn and massively mess you right up. They do sod all to help your recovery except dosing you up on meds and don't even give you the meds your usually on at home on admission and never get it right no matter how much you stress the issue. The office is their hideout they hardly even acknowledge you let alone talk to you about what's wrong it's like pulling teeth trying to get anything worthwhile from them. Hope you don't have to go here if so I hope your one who has a helpful admission unlike soooo many I knowπŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ˜ˆπŸ’©πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£

Top Tip! Well organised and really helpful staff. A proper recycling centre with real focus on reusing items. Queuing to get in is unfortunate.
