Barclays Bank

Norfolk House, 19/20 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 1NG, UK – 0345 734 5345

A large and new looking branch. Why do we have 2 so close? Is it so they can justify their extortionate charges? My advice, bank anywhere else! Remember: they had a bank in south Africa, under the racist regime! Leopards and spots!

Well located and friendly staff

The Co-op Bank - Croydon

91 George St, Croydon CR0 1LD, UK – 020 8649 8166

I love this bank-ethical investments and incredible customer service!

Rarely any queues, staff are very helpful and a pleasant place.


9 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 2AA, UK – 0345 740 4404

Very lovely attendants who you would firstly speak to queue for the advisors. Nice waiting area. However the advisor I encountered provided me with false information and he was really forceful. I'm glad that I knew the correct information online so I wasn't cheated by him. I ended up finishing up my account opening and switch in another branch. It's very appealing so I've made formal complaint and received positive feedbacks from their customer service. Watch out if you ever speak to Nirav S Palan.

The fact that it opens on a Saturday until 5pm won me over!

Jobcentre Plus

17-21 Dingwall Rd, Croydon CR9 2TN, UK – 0843 487 1844

I went with a friend and staff and her adviser were very helpful. Location is good but needs a good clean up.

Quite helpful staff, less one lady that you always wish is not at work when you go, who seems to see everyone as a stupid person and treats you accordingly. That is one of the customer service, at the ground floor. Otherwise, there are people who know what they are doing, the others are there without a clue of basic knowledge of their job. It's like a Kinder Surprize place...You never know what you will get, information wise. Not to mention that you might solve your issue in 10 minutes or you can be stuck there for 2 hours. It's up to your luck!

Dental Surgeries

Brigstock Dental & Implant Centre

97 Brigstock Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7JL, UK – 020 8689 6171

Very pleasurable experience, great staff. I look forward to my dental appointments. Everyone is friendly and meticulous.” I highly commend and wish to express my gratitude to Doctor Rudy Audit who has been my dentist for the past 5 years on his professionalism, dedication and perfectionism.

Very personal service and advanced facilities. Excellent value for money. Trust the right decision will be made!

Family Dental Practice

262 Portland Rd, London SE25 4SL, UK – 020 8654 1434

My recent appointment with this surgery has shown that staff of this surgery are friendly, accommodating, and make every effort to cater for patience needs. Both my daughter and I rate this surgery as top quality excellent. Upon my recommendation, my daughter finally registered with this surgery, the dentist she has assigned to had found that much of the work that she had done to her teeth by another surgery was totally unnecessary (not to mention pricey). She provided my daughter with the correct diagnosis and treatment, that her teeth are much much better! She can now crunch all of her foods including her chicken bones! So citizens if you are thinking of attending this surgery, rest assured you would receive the best treatment from any of the dentists at the surgery, as they are ALL very good (I have had access to them in times of emergency when my own dentist was unavailable). This blog is from someone who had a terrible fear of dentist ............. my family is safe with this surgery that I would not change it.

Very good hospatalaties. Jenny is the best practition ever dentist i mean

Orchard Dental Centre

146 Cherry Orchard Rd, Croydon CR0 6BB, UK – 020 8686 3010

Great dental practice - receptionist was very helpful on the phone and in person, they fit me in that day and the dentist was brilliant, professional and helpful. They offered NHS tarrif prices, which is good for the wallet too.

I've only recently joined this practice and as a very nervous person the staff are more than kind and patient! I've seen both dentists the lady and the man and if you are nervous like me I highly recommend them! Thanks Orchard!

I have never had a problem at this practice. Appointments are usually given within a week or two, which is reasonable for a London practice in my experience. Staff are always helpful, friendly and courteous.

Reception staff always polite and helpful. Doctors listen to you and discuss your treatment,and are up to date with the latest treatments.

Croydon University Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath, Croydon CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3000

The service you receive here is very hit and miss. I've been suffering from a problem for the last 10 months now, for the most part service has been good, but unfortunately I can't say that for the entirety of the time. Went to see a neurologist after being referred by the first specialist I had been seeing and he seemed very rude. I was called half an hour late and walked in there to him having not even read my notes. He was telling me it was all a confidence issue despite my GP, specialist and myself telling him these symptoms he claimed were unlikely to impact me were still impacting me. He told me if I needed help around I was no better than his five year old granddaughter which I took huge offense to considering I've been unwell for so long. Half way through my appointment he made me go outside because he got a phone call be didn't want me hearing, and I got the impression he was wasn't listening. He did hardly any checks but just assumed they weren't bringing on symptoms without asking me, even though they were, and kept getting funny with me when I was explaining why I'd had to take so much time off because my symptoms have been that bad for so long so I kept getting signed off. They hadn't booked me in for any scans prior to this so in fairness the poor bloke didn't really have much to go off of, but he essentially turned around and said I may well be having these symptoms but he didn't know why so he just referred me elsewhere, but didn't seem interested in a follow up or to try to help me get to the route of the problem in the meantime. I'd been waiting 3 months for this appointment and had been told by my specialist he was sure he'd give me a certain diagnoses and get medication to help with my headaches, but it was completely dismissed as soon as I brought it up. Very disheartening when you've been ill so long and been told this appointment was going to give you all the answers.

I awoke to my leg hanging off. That's blown it , I thought. Lucky for me I was taken here and they reattached it. Even my foot faced the right way. I am now a better dancer than before.

BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital

Poppy Ln, Shirley Oaks Village, Croydon CR9 8AB, UK – 020 8655 5500

I was admitted through my gastroenterologist, and i have to say the care i received was fantastic. Timing was absolutely outstanding. I didn't have to wait long for the procedure. The rooms, were fantastic. Clean, and i felt very comfortable. I especially have to give my props to the MRI department however. I suffered a moderate form of anaphylaxis after an injection of contrast, and they were very fast, professional, and efficient in regards to treating it straight away. For that i couldn't thank them enough.

I was seeing outpatient, nice and polite staff working there, only bit I don't feel happy about is when I was told by my consultant that i could have my scan done in the same day, but it turned out the doc who normally carry out the scan only work in the morning and I have to come back next day, not efficient. And the location of it can be miss leading as well if you only search the postcode part of its address on google map , it will take you to the back of it where you won't able to get in

Moorfields Eye Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3486

I have been under Moorfields eye departments at Croydon for a number of years and cannot speak highly enough of their level of care and professionalism. Moorfields took over the eye division at CUH quite a while back and the improvements they have achieved are very impressive. I am therefore loathe to post my feedback from last Thursday but do this in the hope that remedial action can be taken. I attended the eye clinic for a post operation review and waited nearly three and a half hours to be seen by a consultant. He and his support staff were clearly embarrassed by the poor scheduling of the mornings appointments which resulted in horrendous log jams and was plainly due to poor resource planning failure by admin staff. The staff and consultants were , as usual, absolutely excellent .However, I really hope we are not returning to the bad old days of thoughtless appointment booking and appropriate staffing decisions!

Accompanied my apprehensive husband David this morning to have laser treatment to repair a torn retina. Moorfields Eye clinic was busy but efficient. David was duly called into the laser room and towards the end of the10 minute procedure, he passed out. With in seconds emergency help arrived, nurses, doctors, oxygen, porters, paramedics with stretcher. A routine session became a scene out of casualty as they brought him round from fainting. With all of this came a real sense of concern, efficiency, reassurance and true care. Bless all of you and thank you.

Just been to recycle all my bits, asked a man if they take domestic waste and he said yeah then he started picking all my bits up to dispose off, they are so helpful here everytime I recycle. Thanks croydon recycling 👍

They've started asking for ID now and the guy at the entrance just leaned in and put a sticker inside my windscreen. I was slightly annoyed that he didn't ask first but it's not the end of the world. Was I was in, the staff were fairly helpful telling where to dispose of waste I wasn't sure about.

Purley Oaks Household Reuse and Recycling Centre

Brighton Rd, Purley CR8 1DG, UK – 020 8726 6200

Staff tend to leave you alone to get on with. Not a bad thing in my opinion.

Staff friendly, approachable and helpful. New layout is good as it reduces the down time due to lorry movements to a minimum. But I don't like the new green waste arrangement with stairs up to top of skip, preferred the compactor at ground floor level.

Royal Russell School

Coombe Ln, Croydon CR9 5BX, UK – 020 8657 4433

Amazing school and very good staff.

The following review is based on my attendance of Royal Russell School in the years 2010-2014 - the views expressed are my opinion and mine alone. This is a great school in many ways. The staff are mostly friendly and supportive of students and they are passionate about teaching their subjects. There is also a vast array of co-curricular activities available which will serve to delight students looking for extra activities apart from their studies. However, the Careers Department had an impression of facing criticism from the students in 6th Form. Careers sessions hardly contained useful information and were largely seen seen as a waste of time. Furthermore, there was also a huge disparity to how uniformly rules were enforced in general as different teachers often had interpretations of their own. Some of the rules for which students, such as myself, were penalised seem very arbitrary in hindsight. For example, I was once threatened with a detention had not removed a reasonable 3 star review of the school 5 years ago (seeing as I'm no longer a pupil, that will not pressure me this time). The school will be better served to rectify some of its criticisms if a concept anonymous student feedback is perhaps considered as this was non-existent in my time at the school. There is only so much one can write in a Google review however, despite its short comings, this is an excellent school and one students will ultimately be proud of to have attended.
