Trouble is, because the Conservative councillors keep being voted in they don't feel they need to make an effort. Ours at Littledown seem reasonably helpful. The council is strapped for cash now due to central government cuts and the effects can be seen.

They do a good job in making sure everything runs well

Dental Surgeries

Charminster House Dental Practice

65 Wellington Rd, Bournemouth BH8 8JL, UK – 01202 292030

Not being a great fan of dentists I'd not been to see one in over five years, but I finally stumped up the courage to go to this practice in 2014. Thankfully they soon put me at ease and quickly addressed some issues that had been causing me problems. They're a fantastic, friendly and professional team and I've been returning to them for hygiene appointments and check-ups ever since.

Followed treatment plan and got great results. I was developing a problem with bleeding gums and was referred to a specialist. Saffina and the team explained the cause and is worth the effort treating these things early to avoid tooth loss. I'm now confident about controlling this going forward. I needed to improve my cleaning and eventually have surgery, which went smoothly. I recommend that if you are having gum problems not to mess around and get professional help here.

Knibbs & Doman

81 Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH3 7AN, UK – 01202 529552

ThankQ so much for taking care of me on the 25th April 2017. Fantastic Dental practice, registered with 111 emergency. Caring & quick response to my matter in hand. Dealt with with the up most care. Treatment successful, can't thank you & your staff enough.. THANKQ THANKQ THANKQ

I've been seeing the dentists here for many years and had a LOT of treatment as my teeth are not very well behaved! I've always had very good treatment and the receptionists have always been very courteous and helpful.

Dental Centre Bournemouth

11 The Triangle, Bournemouth BH2 5RY, UK – 01202 291292

Went here for an emergency appointment as sent by 111 after having a chip knocked out of my tooth. Amazing service, brilliant dentist and made me feel at ease. He was totally honest about everything, best dentist i've seen!

I'm terrified of going to the dentist and the experience I had here today was the least scary one I've ever had; the staff are brilliant and willing to help you with any questions you may have. I would recommend them.

Heatherview Medical Centre

2, Alder Park, Alder Rd, Parkstone, Poole BH12 4AY, UK – 01202 743678

All the doctors nurses and admin staff have all the patients intrests at heart. I have been a patient for 15 years and have received excellent service every time. They are not miracle workers. They are doctors doing the best they can with what they have got. They deserve respect and to be valued. They are important key figures in our lives.

Nice modern surgery and pleasant staff

The Panton Practice

Gervis Rd, Bournemouth BH1 3EG, UK – 01202 411700

Even with an appointment I have some waiting time which seems to have improved. Reception welcome varies but healthcare workers are very welcoming. Yes the buildings are old but I'd rather have money spent on care/services than decor. I have good service across the board but then I have no high expectations, demand nothing but good care, and try to manage my own needs with support/advice. I'd recommend the practice for it's level of care and services.

GPs professional, approachable and patient. Locum/trainee? doctors have always been good too. Receptionists do their best under frequent pressure. Not easy for them. Walk-in sessions for urgent cases brilliant, take away worry and stress knowing you can be seen. Would have given 5* except for a few gripes (bit don't let them put you off). a) Surgery is past it's sell-by. Far too small, out dated, unwelcoming. b) Have to go elsewhere for blood tests, X-Rays, ultrasound etc. (and then unless urgent can't get the feedback for 2/3 weeks). Would prefer a GP led superclinic with more facilities (providing easily accessible by public transport/car). c) Can't see medical records online - at least appts and repeat prescriptions are now. d) How about evening and weekend surgeries!? Maybe that would alleviate the crowding in the waiting room (and make patients happier). e) The waiting room and entrance can get too crowded. Sitting in a circle in a small area staring at other ill patients is really unpleasant. f) The blood pressure machine drives everyone mad. Yes, good to have it, but everyone seems to struggle. The receptionists must be immune to all the complaints about it by now.

Village Surgery

Gillett Rd, Poole BH12 5BF, UK – 01202 525252

Excellent surgery and all Doctors and staff that I have met

Have always found them to be good.

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.

Exceptional service pre and post theatre. A massive thank you to Mr Nick Davies the consultant surgeon, and all the Purbeck section team for looking after me with 5 star service. I can't list all the names as nurse said wouldn't I remember and she was right. Anyone receiving treatment here will not be disappointed

First class if you can afford it. Like being in a hotel.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

30B Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6NU, UK – 01202 292564

I have been a member of the Church ofJesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) since late 1963. I was working in in a shop in Kinson, an area of Bournemouth at that time. Two LDS missionaries had come into the shop to buy something and had a conversation with the shop assistant who was an Australian. The upshot of this was they left a book called Meet the Mormons with her.. She was not really interested in reading it . I worked in the workshop above the shop and on occasion it was necessary for me to go in the shop itself to get something or other. On this occasion she asked me to give this book to a lady in an upstairs office, which I did. She also wasn't interested in looking at it so I left it on my work bench and carried on with my work Lunch time came around so I sat down to eat my sandwiches and as I had nothing else to do I started to read the Book. I got really interested in it and asked the Australian girl if I could take it home with me to finish reading it. She agreed and I took it home and finished it. About ten days later she contacted me and said that there were two Americans in the shop who wished to speak to me. I went down and spoke to them and we conversed about the book and what I thought of it.. The rest is history, Yes I did eventually join their church and I have been a member for over fifty years now. My wife and I go regularly to Church nearly every Sunday health permitting. The views of the Bournemouth Chapel you see here are lovely . The building consistent of Chapel for worship, a cultural hall , a kitchen, classrooms for. Sunday school and other meetings, toilets, a library, a walk in font for baptisms and rooms to change in. A large car park and at least two offices. Most Latter Day Saint Chapel's have these facilities? I accidentally came across this site which has asked me to is rate and review it. So I am giving it ten out of ten. And my review you have just read. Just a little bit more. There are other Chapels within our area. Poole, Christchurch, Weymouth,, Jersey, Yeovil, Salisbury

This is a Christian Church. Everybody is welcome.

Seventh-day Adventist Church

84 Alma Rd, Bournemouth BH9 1AN, UK – 01202 871928

This is one of most caring churches I've ever attend. While in my studies I attended there with my wife and two daughters; we visited the church the whole term and my daughters love it. One distinguishing feature is being a very multinational group which brings a more enriching experience.

Apostolic Faith Church

66 Muscliffe Rd, Bournemouth BH9 1NW, UK – 01202 528270

Nursery and Preschools

Tiny Tots Nursery

4D Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6NG, UK – 01202 299415

Tiny Tots is a wonderful nursery and pre-school. I couldn't praise it highly enough. I have 2 daughters. My eldest attended from 11 months to 4 years old and she loved going there. My other daughter is only 4 months old and I hope to send her there too when I go back to work. Diana who runs the nursery is extremely organised and good with the children and all her staff are brilliant. Everything is provided for you so as a busy working mum you don't have to remember nappies, or pack food etc. They follow the EYFS and you get excellent feedback about what your child has achieved and what they will be doing each week.

Wonderful place ! Vanusa de Aveiro

Since we decided to send our daughter to Talbot Heath we have noticed that she is evolving into an intelligent young lady with a great manner. We love the fact that there are small numbers in the classrooms with a lot of 1 to 1 tuition and have seen a massive change due to this. I could't think of a better school and recommend it to anyone

Gave me a thirst for knowledge and learning that would not have been accessable otherwise.
