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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Stroud General Hospital

Trinity Rd, Stroud GL5 2HY, UK – 0300 421 8080

My Mother, aged 93, was admitted following a fall. She was treated exceptionally well from the minute she went through the door to the morning I took her home 10 days later. The assessment, medical treatment, physio and even homecare review were all faultless. What really impressed me was the genuine level of interest in her progress and wellbeing, and the considerate nature of the staff. Everyone from ward sister down were professional and caring. She fell in her house but fell on her feet when she was lucky enough to go to Stroud hospital.

Excellent service. Lovely staff, efficient and kind. In particular the triage nurse and emergency nurse practitioner

Stroud Maternity Hospital

Field Rd, Stroud GL5 2JB, UK – 0300 421 8018

I was born here. My mum told me it was the place to go when delivering a child or a new life. She said it was the best place around. My 3 sisters have now all given birth to their children here too. It's still known for being the best in the area.

Very good staff. They are so reliable and very helpful. I was unfortunate to have a midwife that was useless but I was able to change midwife's very quickly.

We first stumbled across this restaurant during the fringe festival back in August when we moved here. We liked it so much, we went back on the second day. We've been back to visit a couple of times since and everything is as perfect as it was then. The customer service is always outstanding, the food is super scrummy, we just wish you were open more often! Thank you for your amazing hospitality and super tasty food!

Wonderful food and lovely Staff ... :)
