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!

Building Societies

Local Chambers of Commerce for HP3 0DS. 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!

Excellent place for parties. Lot of space for parking. Full kitchen.

Citizens Advice Bureau

Dacre House, 19 Hillfield Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP2 4AA, UK – 0344 411 1444

London Road Dental Practice

The best dentist around! Worth to travel the extra mile to get to this professional and confident service.

Mr Ghulam's wife is the dental nurse & receptionist and together they create a caring environment and work well as a great team! My impression of Mr Ghulam is that as well as being a very interesting & compassionate man, that he is also a masterful credit to his profession

Fernville Surgery

Midland Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP2 5BL, UK – 01442 213919

Always get seen when needed if urgent appt. Every doctor I've seen has been kind and courteous and would reccommended this surgery.

Always wait list is minimum 2-3 week and This surgery must need some experienced doctor. If you want to book an appointment better to go to centre sometimes it's very hard to book by phone. Staff is very helpful but they are always busy. Enough chair to wait your turn, clean and well maintained.

Parkwood Drive Surgery

Parkwood Dr, Warners End, Hemel Hempstead HP1 2LD, UK – 01442 250117

Outstanding group of Doctors and Nurses. Polite and helpful staff. Flexible even at busy times the sugery is very professionally run in good humour and of a very high standard. Thus it amazes me when you see so many no shows to appointments.

This surgery is absolutely incredible. I've got a complicated medical history, and having moved around a lot, I've visited many different surgeries. I've never experienced service of this calibre. Every single one of the doctors that I have seen have completely exceeded my expectations. They take all the time you need and don't rush you. They actually read your medical history. They listen. I have always believed that for people with long term chronic conditions, the doctor-patient relationship should be a collaborative process. And that is exactly how it is. The administration staff are also brilliant - polite, friendly and efficient. At Parkwood you genuinely feel as though the practice is putting the patient first - it's not about reducing money or hitting targets for them, it's about excellent patient care. I feel incredibly lucky to live in their catchment area.

Everest House Surgery

Everest Way, Hemel Hempstead HP2 4HY, UK – 01442 500164
