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!

Well staffed helpful bank just like all the others in the country, in the precinct so you have to walk there, there is no immediate car park though there are plenty of car parks in the area which you have to pay for even if you have a disabled badge, there are no steps to the entrance.

Nice clean bank. Pleasant staff.

I have been a Halifax customer for years. The staff are very friendly and there is always a human to talk to. Not like other banks where you are just faced with a plethora of machines and computers. Halifax in Scarborough still offers traditional customer care.

Lovely open WiFi for travelers like me. I'm using it right now btw ♡

Scarborough Medical Group South Cliff Surgery

56 Esplanade Rd, Scarborough YO11 2AU, UK – 01723 501610

It is more than a year that i am registered in this GP with my family, so far so good; But today, the end of september 2016, i waited more than 30 minutes to enter in the room 4, i state that when i arrived in total including me we were 3 patients in the waiting room and certainly there was not a single gp but at least 3-4. So i can say that this medical group lately is badly organized and there is not a supervisor who controls these doctors with little experience, and maybe they do expect their patients for to talk on the phone with some friends.

Brilliant surgery, you dont struggle like other practices to get appointments and at good times, not all 9-5! Highly recommend.

Castle Health Centre

3-4 York Pl, Scarborough YO11 2NP, UK – 0330 123 9278

The duty doctor was great, called at 5pm for an appointment and went to the surgery at 7. On time, Dr spoke to our daughter about how she was feeling and really listened. Referral to ENT specialist and prescription given and in house pharmacy dispensed in 10 minutes. Excellent service. Thank you.

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.

Scarborough Borough Council

Last time I visited Scarborough was 30 years ago. So we decided it was time to visit. Much of Scarborough hadn't changed. The big difference this time ,I am now disabled and in a wheelchair. To my dismay I couldn't believe in 2017 the amount of buildings I couldn't get in. Restaurants , Public Houses , Amusement Arcades , Shops etc. I know Scarborough is a old holiday town but a few ramps or lowered steps would make a massive difference to me and other disabled people. Has nice as Scarborough was I will not be revisiting. I felt excluded and embarrassed. Ian Lamb
