Westmount Dental Surgery

1 W Mount, Chester Rd, Sunderland SR4 8PY, UK – 0191 567 2694

Always happy with my treatment. Lovely staff to. Best dentist around.

I never liked my teeth and in years gone by i was told that a brace would not work for me. I initially went to westmount to enquire whether there was any way crowns would help straighten my smile. On my assessment i was told my teeth were quite healthy and strong which suprised me. I was told a brace would work for me and it would work fast. Although i found it hard to envisage the end result ashs optimism for success was infectious and i was very soon believing that nothing was going to stop me getting my nice smile. I trusted ash at every step. The brace itself was fine , and didnt feel uncomfortable. It was exciting seeing the change within just a few weeks. I wholeheartedly, 100% recommend this treatment with ash to anyone who does not like their smile!

Dental Surgery

50 John St, Sunderland SR1 1QH, UK – 0191 567 2604

I was really scared to get my teeth sorted because I knew I need a lot of work done. But once I got the courage to drag myself into the dentist chair, my dentist was sympathetic to my fear and took my mind off what was coming. He let me know that the work was easy, which eased my mind about swallowing or choking on a wisdom tooth. He worked fast and precise to the point I was surprised when he had finished. I would certainly recommend this dentist, I was well looked after.

Grangetown Family Dental Health Centre

41 Ryhope Rd, Sunderland SR2 9QF, UK – 0191 514 1717

I have been going to this Dental practice for many years I think late 1980s and wouldn't change my Dental practice ever and I would highly recommend to anyone. I am 47 years old and have always been satisfied. I have had a couple of emergencies (toothache) and been extremely happy with no long waiting , I just would like to thank .. Ian Tony and staff. Many more years of Dental care ...thanks Jill😷xx

Been going for years no issue even though it a bit out of the was 4 me now still go there

Dr J Lee - Millfield Medical Centre

Millfield Surgery, 63-83 Hylton Rd, Sunderland SR4 7AF, UK – 0191 567 9179

Went for a minor procedure on one Saturday. Excellent service, experienced staff, Mr Contractor (the surgeon who did the procedure)and the nursing staff were very professional, explained procedure clearly, eased my mind of. Good communication, follow up and aftercare. Keep up the good work, and thank you for all your help.

The practice is like many others, busy! Despite this it continues to provide a great service. We've used the practice for over 18 years and have nothing but positive comments to make. They've stopped posting details of the number of surgery hours lost to missed appointment but I'm sure this is still poor and the practice cannot be blamed for patients failure to attend. Waiting times for appointments are, in my experience, better than other practices locally, I base this on conversations with my work colleagues in the area. If you are willing to see any GP that will cut your wait times down. However, if the need is urgent an on call doctor is available and can often help on the day. im genuinely saddened to see the negative reviews here. However, I trust the practice to put improvements in place to help resolve these issues providing they have been formerly raised to their attention.

Colliery Medical Group

Silksworth Health Centre, Silksworth Terrace, Sunderland SR3 2AN, UK – 0191 521 0252

Sunderland Royal Hospital

Kayll Rd, Sunderland SR4 7TP, UK – 0191 565 6256

When I Fractured my leg (a week and 5 days before Christmas) in 2 places the Ambulance came straight away. I couldn't believe it. When got to Hospital put me in a room where they took care of me then put me another ward where I was there for a week and 3 days, the Nurses and staff took very good care of me also the food was nice and got plenty of drinks including Tea and Coffee which was lovely. The best are the Doctors, they have done well and now that my leg and ankle have healed, I have to go to the Physiotherapy Orthopedic Gym, I just hope I can find it. But I want to thank all the Doctors, Nurses and all the Staff for helping and looking after me. They are great People and do their job well. Wish I could say more or give them more stars on here.

Five star service. Doctors acted very quickly and immediately covered all potential aspects of my daughters illness. Nurses were very professional and friendly. The only fault was that one nurse didn’t act on my concern about an error which had been made. Although a minor error. So I raised the issue with another nurse who corrected it. Not worth taking a star off them though as they were fab.

Church of Scientology of Sunderland

51 Fawcett St, Sunderland SR1 1RS, UK – 0191 510 9600

Some genuinely weird people writing reviews on here, so as one of the only people who has actually DONE some Scientology, I thought I’d weigh in with a review that’s actually true and useful. (note: Scientology something you do, not something you believe. Hence why there are atheist Scientologists like me, bhuddists, Muslims, Christians all Scientologists). I have been in it 3 years. Heavily atheist background. Big fan of personal development but the results were always fleeting (I.e. temporary highs, didn’t last long, unstable) and I had a lot of swings in mood, productivity, motivation, and ability to handle my life. I went into the church with absolutely no real expectation it would do anything whatsoever. But as I said, Scientology is something you do. No faith required. You don’t need to believe in it. You just need to read it, and then do what it says and see the results. Anyway, long story short, my life is massively transformed as a result. Personal life; I’m now in a stable relationship, I am genuinely always motivated, I have full control over my emotions and thinking ness. I know I can make big things happen and that’s left me very peaceful. Professional life; I applied the tools and 20X’d my income, started a business, and now am international (when I went in I didn’t even dream of owning my own company). So there’s some truth, from a real life Scientologist. You can listen to some conspiracy theory weirdos, you can listen to me. I’d recommend listening to yourself, and seeing it for yourself, and being your own judge. Spend £30, buy a course, apply it and see if it works for you. The Overcoming Ups & Downs one is an easy place to start. But find whatever interests you. It’s organised my topics, you can do whatever you want. Or don’t. It’s your life!

Lovely people welcomed me in. They led me to a table and we sat and chatted. I liked the man he's nice and has nice teeth. He let me touch a machine and he told me I'm unhappy. I told him I was OK because I was looking at his teeth and they were nice. I saw a digger outside aswell and that made me happy. He told me I was sad deep inside and that if I give them some of my money they would be my friend and I could meet with them more. I liked his teeth because they were nice so I gave him money. I can't afford it but I did it and I'm not happy yet. They tell me to keep coming and I will.

Beach Street Recycling Depot

Ayres Quay, Hanover Pl, Sunderland SR4 6BY, UK

If you haven't figured out how to use the 'two bin' system and fortnightly collections, you can bring your rubbish here.. be prepared to wait when it's sunny tho. Can be over an hour..!! Some people think it's a fun family day out. Kids to stay in the car tho.. You need a permit for small vans, large vans not allowed..

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Great location nice food but not as good as It was a few years ago. We sat looking into bar and microwave was used on puddings in plastic holders, does the kitchen do the same??? Suggest booking but there is the bar area to wait if needed. Staff are always attentive.

I love San Marinos. Always great food, atmosphere and service. Tonight I had a wonderful starter of bacon, black pudding, crispy egg (sort of Scotch egg) in peppercorn sauce.

As a former student I can definitely say that this school is by far among the best, staff are insanely friendly and make it their mission statement to make sure that all students are safe and happy, parents can also support the school directly through the friends of Barbara priestman which is composed of parents and family members of students, I can definitely recommend this school to any parent particularly if your child has Asperger's syndrome like myself

Used to go to this school, everyone was lovely there, i was a student called Chloe J there....I moved from Northumberland To Sunderland...and went to that school when i was there. They taught me independence travel, math and made my skills go up really fast from September 2016-July this school indeed💙
