What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Carisbrooke Dental Practice

238 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1RL, UK – 0116 270 7030

I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the dental treatment I received from Dr Fiona Phillips. I was explained my treatment plan clearly and felt at ease with her. I highly recommend her for the expertise and professionalism, without a doubt this is the best dental practice I have visited.

I would highly recommend Dr Dakin and the team at Carisbrooke Dental Practice. The care, attention, communication and clinical dentistry provided, has been excellent and represents genuine value for money.

Knighton Dental Practice

316 Welford Rd, Leicester LE2 6EG, UK – 0116 270 7803

I have been coming to Knighton Dental before the new owners took over. They have made this practice into a wonderful, state of the art practice. Dr Amin has provided me with 4 implants, CEREC crowns and Enlighten teeth whitening and I am over the moon with my new smile. CEREC dentistry impressed me the most, Dr Amin scanned in my teeth onto a computer and 3D designed crowns for my teeth with very little drilling, all in one appointment; very EFFICIENT. Everything was painless including my implants. Dr Amin has a wonderful way of putting his patients at ease, he explains everything he does before he does it and that put me at ease. Before the new owners took over my teeth were in a poor state as I was so scared to visit. Now I have teeth to smile about and I visit the hygienist every 3 months and the Dentist every 6 months. Definitely recommend Knighton Dental.

Currently undergoing refurbishments, a modern feeling practise whose staff and practitioners are helpful and courteous. You are made to feel welcome, and the practitioners are transparent in every part of your care.

Scraptoft Ln, Leicester LE5 1HY, UK – 0116 276 9401

1st class treatment. My 6 year old had a small operation on her tongue and the staff were caring and kind too all of us. She was very nervous and they were considerate and put her at ease very easily. Thank you.

I have just had surgery at the this Nuffield hospital and can only praise all the staff that I came into contact with. My Pre-op assessment nurse (Sue) was very thorough but we enjoyed friendly banter as the examination continued From admission through to my leaving the hospital the following day I can only praise all the staff for the attention and care I received If all patients are treated in the same way I could think of a better place to be treated Thank you all See you soon for my next op

Leicester General Hospital

Gwendolen Rd, Leicester LE5 4PW, UK – 0300 303 1573

A fantastic local institution that has ably served the local community for over a century. It's worth waiting here if it means you see world class practitioners who are not going to fleece you in the process.

I have just come out of Leicester General after treatment for a bladder tumour and was very impressed by my treatment, both surgery and nursing. However when it came to leaving it would probably have been easier to escape from Colditz. Why when the nursing is so good and the attention from consultants is brilliant can the discharge procedure be so chaotic? I was told I could leave at 12.45 on Monday and that it would take a few hours to get the procedure in place .I asked for an estimate of time and was told by a ward sister that the discharge letter would be with me by 4.00pm.Why 31/4 hours? I was asked by the sister if I needed medication to take home and by another nurse on a separate occassion. My problem was that I live in North Linolnshire and I had arranged for a friend to fetch me and I needed a rough time to save me having to wait about 7 hours as the trip for him takes about 3 hours so I could ring him in the hope my discharge would coincide with his arrival. I asked every now and then how things were going and was told that a nurse was keeping her eye on it as the original sister had left . At 4pm still no sign of the letter and my friend had arrived in the car park so I asked again and was told that the letter was being dealt with in a way that suggested not to keep bothering staff. At 4.20pm I went back to the ward desk and spoke to a different sister/charge nurse and asked what I had to do to get out. She asked me if I needed medication to take home and I said no I didn't to which she replied that in that case I could leave and that they would send the letter by post and said that this was the normal case. I have to say that she was very apologetic ,particularly when I said that I had been asked at least twice before about medication. Why can't this procedure be put into ward training and standardised or some system be in place to speed things up as it rather spoils what had been a very good experience up until then?

Taylor Road Primary School

53 Taylor Rd, Leicester LE1 2JP, UK – 0116 262 4597

Capable and hands on Senior leadership management, excellent, helpful and friendly staff: teachers, academic support staff , office staff and non academic staff all play their part to make the school an excellent and nurturing environment for our children thus the extraordinary performance of the school. I recommend it to everyone but it comes with a Warning attached : if you'll get placement for your child in the first place.

very good school in all fields,teaching wise very high standard (which reflects in Ofsted reports!),head teacher Mr Hassl is one of the best head teachers iv come across, teachers are very good,students well behaved, reception people very friendly and helpful and these are only a few excellent qualities of the school! me, my husband (who's also parent governor in Taylor Rd school) and my 3 kids favourite school which they have been at since the beginning, my eldest son is currently in yr 5,daughter in yr 4 my second son in reception and baby son on waiting list. This school is also in very high demand, i would and DO recommend this school to anyone and everyone.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Leicester High School for Girls

Recent inspection report states "excellent in every category"

Leicester Islamic Academy

320 London Rd, Leicester LE2 2PJ, UK – 0116 270 5343

My two kids (year 2 & Reception) has started this school. I had few concerns in my mind related to last Ofsted report (2015) but school has undergone some good improvement ever since then. Some internal references have told me that a new principle & head teacher are already bringing this school to next level proved by latest ofsted inspection report issued about this school. They didn't increased overall rating but said school has improved in its facilities & teacher's training.

My 2 kids have been at Leicester Islamic Academy for a number of years and I am very pleased with the school. The teachers are passionate and caring and really committed to do the best for the children. The recent OFSTED report was very disappointing, but it highlighted some of the areas of the school building which have been a little unloved, and the school have either addressed or are in the process of addressing these.
