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!

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!

Clean, tidy and they seem to know what they are doing.

Identics Ltd

1 Odiham Dr, Maidstone ME16 0TW, UK – 01622 669345

Excellent service every time i visit. I have had a lot of work done by them , and the team have always been brilliant to me. I really cannot recommend them enough. Although it's a private practice the costs are no where near as expensive as i expected. Having had several nhs dentist's over the years and several other private ones, Identics are far and away the best...

Identics is a practice like no other! You received the very kindest, most thoughtful care by a team of outstanding professionals. Their equipment is state of the art and it's probably the best practice in Kent.

Roseacre Cottage Dental Practice

111 Ashford Rd, Bearsted, Maidstone ME14 4BT, UK – 01622 730548

Roseacre dental surgery is honestly the best dental practice I have ever been too. I've had a huge amount of work done with them - everything from fillings to root canals and the staff have always been highly professional and gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I have always been terrified of dentists and I won't go anywhere else now! I've recommended to friends and family members, all of whom have been delighted with the service offered.

We have been using Roseacre Dental Practice for all our family for over 8 years now and have always had a professional, caring service from them. Our kids were put at ease instantly with their appointments when they first visited and will not see anyone else now for their dental needs. Would highly recommend for all the family.

Bower Mount Medical Practice

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

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

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 !

The Vine Medical Centre

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

I'm always impressed with the service whether walk-in, phone enquiry or 1 to 1. Helpful reception and medical staff. Can't recommend more highly.

Can't recommend this GP more! They have a great walk-in and appointment system, so you don't waste time waiting. Also the staff is very helpful and take their time to explain things so you leave with a clear idea of how things are and what to do next.

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

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

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.

Just had my second procedure at KIMS and I cannot fault the care received here at all. Everyone is so kind, caring and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them at all. Special thanks to my nurses, Joel and Matt on Nickleby Ward, who were both lovely. The theatre staff put me at ease straightaway. The hospital is spotlessly clean and it really was a pleasure to stay there for my procedure. I would not hesitate to recommend my Consultant, Mr Simon Mackey, who has been excellent from my initial consultation with him, right through to the surgery. He is exceptionally friendly and approachable and I am delighted with the results of my surgery. I would highly recommend both KIMS and Mr Mackey.
