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!

227 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1BL, UK – 0345 600 3934

I rang up with a query and at first was told that what I thought should happen does not happen anymore. I did have a feeling I was correct, the member of staff said she would check and get back to me. This she did in a short time and she said that what I had said was was current banking information and she thought legislation was different. She apologized and was incredibly polite and helpful. It so refreshing not to be made out to feel like you are in the wrong and even better to get an apology for it. I do wish more companies/banks would be so honest. Well done Halifax.

Un buen lugar es, podría ser un poco mejor.

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!

Citizens Advice Bureau

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

They are very good but I found that they wouldn't help you follow up some very complicated matters which could cost me the roof over my head.

Best place for free advice. Trust me on this. If you need help with anything from a to z this is where you need to be

Dental Surgeries

Quality Affordable Dentistry

Very good rates, very good staff and very professional overall

Chaulden Dental Practice

180 Northridge Way, Hemel Hempstead HP1 2AL, UK – 01442 256613

Excellent experience. Very friendly caring staff. Dentist Natasha was very understanding and clear. I felt like she had time for me. Would highly recommend. Also great access for buggies!

Dr Patel is brilliant. Reception and other staff very pleasant and helpful. Best dental practice I have ever been to (and I'm 73, so been to quite a few in my time!)

Leverstock Green Dental Practice

17 Village Centre, Leverstock Green Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP3 8QG, UK – 01442 213836

I've really struggled to find a dentist who I felt comfortable with, and thank god I found leverstock green dental. From when I stepped through the door, I was dealt with in a professional and caring manner and it's clear this is a family friendly practice. I've just had new braces fitted (invisalign) and was really nervous at first, but the lady dentist filled me with confidence and I could not be happier.

Fernville Surgery

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

Very helpful receptionist lady! On Saturday 7th October, I phoned the reception to get a prescription re-printed as it was lost. And this lovely lady, who was working on her own, dealt with my problem very efficiently and arranged a new prescription for me and even got it faxed to the local pharmacy. I can not thank you enough and I can not even write her name on public website, but I hope the surgery management will read this 10/10 review and identify the lady who was on duty on the above mentioned date and reward her. Very happy with her service and I am glad to see someone doing everything to help the community. Thank you so much lady!

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

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

This is my new practice since moving to hemel. My gp today was lovely so very happy with the surgery so far.

All the staff and all the doctors are great.They all ways listen to what you have to say.

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.

Hemel Hempstead Hospital

Great staff. Over worked and under appreciated. Always professional. Hemel deserves a fully funded hospital due to its population size.

Excellent service, speed and care.

Hemel Hempstead Hospital : Urgent Care Centre

Hillfield Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP2 4AD, UK – 01442 213141

I wish to thank the staff for first class service. I had fractured my wrist but it was para-medic's diagnosis of a Smith's Fracture, something that he had never seen before, and only experienced by 3% of patients, that led to quick treatment back home in Aberdeen. The fact that he managed to fix up an immediate appointment with our own Fracture Clinic was even more impressive. Also we would wish to thank the nurse that did the initial assessment, and thought this break could be unusual and your 'plasterer' who could confirm the diagnosis, and, of course, the staff at reception who dealt with everything so efficiently.

Fantastic service, got seen and treated quickly, put my mind at rest...

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bovingdon

Mazza Indian Restaurant

43 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1LD, UK – 01442 242712

Really tasty starter, lamb wrap. Decent size portions as you'd expect at any Indian. Beer seemed quite expensive, but other than that was all good.

Had a fantastic meal with some friends at Mazza. The experience was very pleasant and the food was very tasty. Will be visiting again soon 👍🏽

Guru Tandoori Restaurant

Got a take away here while working in Hemel Hempstead. Was reasonably priced, food tasted good, and had Excellent hygiene rating at ratings.food.gov.uk.

Jennys Restaurant

6 Bank Court, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1BZ, UK – 01442 260280

Great piping hot food, very good friendly service, competitively priced. Hence it is very popular with locals. Only negative point, is that they only accept cash, not card? Which means every time I go there with my family, I have to make sure I have enough cash on me. Which is a pain!
