Local Chambers of Commerce for ME14 1TG. 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!

Dental Surgeries

St. Michael's Dental Care

107C Tonbridge Rd, Maidstone ME16 8JS, UK – 01622 758537

I have been seeing Sally for 18 months and have found her to be an extremely professional dentist and very diligent in her work. She has a fantasic manner with her patients and is clearly up to date with the latest dental techniques.

Fantastic service and very friendly staff! True professionals, I would have no hesitations in highly recommending this dental clinic to anyone. If you have fear or are nervous about visiting the dentist this is the clinic for you they will put you at ease throughout the whole experience.

Simply Teeth

36A Gabriel's Hill, Maidstone ME15 6JJ, UK – 01622 677100

Visited this dental practice after being recommended by friend of mine. I have not been for a good few years as my last experience was quite unpleasant making me nervous about visiting one again. I saw a lady dentist named Harpreet, she was very nice and put me at ease. She said she knew i was nervous (i told receptionist when making my appointment, she must of made a note, nice touch!) and if i wanted her to stop at any point just to raise my hand. After my check up i was given a treatment plan and the receptionist's explained it all to me and reassured me that i can do it step by step at my convenience. Overall I am very pleased with the level of service from this practice. The girls at reception are lovely and smiley and the dentist is very thorough & professional. 5* stars from me

Visited today for the first time, Harpreet was very professional, friendly and didn't cause me any pain which is always a good sign! By far the best dentist I have ever visited and the receptionist was also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended by me and I am a nervous patient! Thank you Harpreet :)

Oakwood Dental Surgery

92 London Rd, Maidstone ME16 0DP, UK – 01622 753821

Great dental care her,e very friendly staff.

If you are scared of dentists or yours is the type that digs into your skull then all is not lost - this dentist OAKWOOD DENTAL SURGERY - is your saviour. Run by a fantastic and gentle dentist this practice is just what I was looking for. The staff are friendly and helpful and understand not all of us like going to the dentists. But Simon has to be the gentlest dentist I have ever been too. He talks you through everything that is happening and puts you at ease. If you are not happy with your current dentist YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DENTIST! or if you have just moved to the area then don't think twice about registering with them. Your smile is as important to them as it is to you!

Bower Mount Medical Practice

1 Bower Mount Rd, Maidstone ME16 8AX, UK – 01622 756721

The Pharmacy is excellent, never had any problems there and the staff are great and very informative. Totally recommended. No idea about the practice though as I am not with them !

As a foreginer I visited many places moving around the county however this place is best I ever delt with so far.

Brewer Street Surgery

4 Brewer St, Maidstone ME14 1RU, UK – 01622 755401

Have been here about 15 years now. All the staff here including the reception staff are super helpful and the Dr's are very understanding. Sometimes there can be a few ds wait if you want a specific Dr but it's never too long. The best Dr's surgery I've ever been at.

I like the staff and the extremely high level of competence amongst their Doctors and nursing staff in particular their level of caring compassion.. However my only real criticism is the waiting times, the reception staff are the 1st to comment or complain when you are late or miss an appointment yet on the too many occasions that I have had to sit there for 30+ minutes past my scheduled appointment time they seem supremely unconcerned about it, and indeed almost make me feel a bit ashamed/small for asking why they are so behind

The College Practice

50-52 College Rd, Maidstone ME15 6SB, UK – 01622 752345

I moved to this surgery nearly a year ago and have nothing but good things to say. The staff are all lovely; the doctors never rush an appointment and are very thorough as are the nurses. I've always managed to get an appointment when needed and the telephone consultations are brilliant - saves having to go into the surgery when some general advice or a simple prescription are needed however I've never been made to feel that I can't have a face to face appointment if I need/want one.

This is a review for Dr Fernando rather than the practice itself. This lady has such a sweet, empathic disposition - you really get a sense that she truly cares for her patients. She is very calming and re-assuring and although we have no specific g.p. as such, we always like to think of her as our g.p. and hope when we have to make an appointment that it will be with her. She is a credit to the surgery and I just hope she stays.

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.

BMI The Somerfield Hospital

63-77 London Rd, Maidstone ME16 0DU, UK – 01622 208000

My husband went in for a total knee replacement operation. We could not fault the experience from seeing the consultant, going for pre-op and then the operation. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and really cared about him. The food was lovely and with free drinks 24/7 for visitors, and free parking we could not fault it.

I went here for Knee Arthroscopy in June 2017. Both the hospital and Surgeon were marvelous. Also the standard of Physiotherapy after care was excellent.

KIMS Hospital

Newnham Ct Way, Weavering, Maidstone ME14 5FT, UK – 01622 237500

Members of my family said that all the staff they met at the hospital were kind, helpful and friendly. They said that Mr. Simon Ellis was the perfect person with whom to have an appointment - very approachable, gave very clear explanations as to the medical situation, and constantly seemed to be aware of and sensitive to the needs of the patient. Thank you very much.

Attended KIMS on the 11th October for an angiogram every member of staff from the ladies on reception, the friendly porter who took me to the ward and the brilliant staff on Dickens ward. A special mention to the fantastic team that did my procedure. And a very special thank you to Victoria.

The Vine Medical Centre

13 Tonbridge Rd, Maidstone ME16 8RL, UK – 01622 754898

Best place to eat in Maidstone. Very tasty food and freshly made. We have been here a couple of times and especially the set menu is great as it is different every time.
