Silk Dental Care

30 Chester Rd, Macclesfield SK11 8DG, UK – 01625 424808

I attended Silk Dental after it was recommended to me by a friend My teeth weren't in great condition, I was very nervous of the dentist and a little ashamed of my teeth. Lawrence, the dentist I saw, has been brilliant, professional yet has put me at complete ease. I cant recommend Silk Dental Care enough

Excellent dentists very caring and professional

The Heathcote Dental Practice

43 Great King St, Macclesfield SK11 6PN, UK – 01625 425838

After developing a painful tooth over the weekend, I desperately needed a solid opinion on what to do with it. I have not visited a dentist for 4 years but they managed to somehow squeeze me in to what seemed to be an already busy schedule the very next day because of my pain. Emails were responded to quickly and the reception staff had time to give me some brief advice even though I visited right at closing time. I had an appointment with Richard Heathcote who logically problem solved his way to the heart of the issue due to my pain being very misleading and counter-intuitive. Once the problem was identified, I was given the options and consequences clearly and lots of help making my decision on the next steps. All the complex X-Rays and other technical jargon was broken down into simple terms that even a child could understand and we went into lots of detail and analysis. All the worst-case scenarios were covered and safety protocols followed exactly. In the end, unfortunately I had to lose a tooth but was fully educated throughout and involved in the journey to the conclusion, which was customer service straight out of a textbook. I had some emotional attachment to keeping the tooth but the overwhelming case presented to me helped me look at the hard facts and chose the right path for the greater good of my mouth. The tooth was examined briefly to show me what exactly had happened and all questions answered. The appointment overran a little but I wasn't rushed out and dizziness was treated properly before I was allowed to leave for my own safety. Finally, after the treatment, all the necessary recovery advice was explained clearly and printed out for me. On a personal level, everyone was professional, friendly & genuine. From start to finish, there really isn't anything I could improve or fault. I was fortunate enough to get NHS treatment but was willing to pay almost any price to get a simple appointment. Upon contacting two other recommended practices in a panic, I was treated like a nuisance & found them to be very dismissive and unsympathetic with no advice phone-lines given or guidelines on how to solve the problem or where else to go. Other practices in the area could learn a lot from how Heathcote operate.

Prestbury Road Dental Practice

7 Prestbury Rd, Macclesfield SK10 1AU, UK – 01625 432300

I have always been afraid of dentist until now . I feel comfortable and relaxed here and now don't mind going highly recommend.

As a particularly nervous patient based on years of bad dental treatment I came to Prestbury Road Dental Practice with sweaty palms. After only a few appointments I was entirely more relaxed and my dental health greatly improved. I can't recommend Prestbury Road Dental Practice enough. I'm based in Middlewich and gladly make the journey to Macclesfield when necessary. If you're looking for a dentist in or around Macclesfield who will give the very best care, look no further.

Cumberland House Surgery

Waters Green Medical Centre, Sunderland St, Macclesfield SK11 6JL, UK – 01625 428081

Our family has been with Cumberland House surgery for the past 46 years and during that time we have received excellent treatment.

really good surgery but the receptionists mostly have severe attitude problems. Rude, don't appear to care etc.....however these are social issues and not the most important requirement of a doctors. What is a problem is that the receptionists here almost always fail to send the prescriptions to the designated pharmacies. This problem is so common that it becomes a conversational topic when people discover that they both use Cumberland house surgery. That IS a problem.

Christmas party.. Great atmosphere and food was lovely. Waitress was a little too attentive (I.e. Started to clear plates before everyone had finished eating etc, claiming she has ocd and didn't like mess!) We were able to laugh but it was a little annoying!!!

Best Italian around. Beautiful food & lovely staff who really go out of their way for you

Pizza Express

4 Market Pl, Macclesfield SK10 1EX, UK – 01625 425175

Usually love this restaurant but on this occasion we left a bit disappointed. After finishing our main meal we were given dessert menu but nobody came back to take order so we ended up paying and leaving as two young children with us. The refit upstairs looks good though apart from little room when you enter and wait for table.

Firstly we were waiting for a very long time for anyone to approach us to take us to our seat. It was so loud in here I literally had to shout to my partner to hear anything they said. The tables were clean and the decor was lovely. The pizza was okay nothing special: however the pesto pasta was amazing. Also sharing dough ball starter is lovely.

Footprints Day Nursery (Macclesfield)

154 Cumberland St, Macclesfield SK10 1BP, UK – 01625 662200

Great Nursery. Staff are fantastic.

Having read the previous review, I felt it only fair to give a counter opinion. My daughter has been attending the babies room from an early age and the staff are exceptional. Her key worker, listens to our requests and does her best to include what we ask into her daily routine, i.e. supporting our baby led weening, to changing sleep routines. Footprints have been exceptionally flexible and have both increased and reduced Poppy's sessions when requested following changes to working patterns, and requirements, and have even gone the extra mile when we moved home. Having been sending our daughter to Footprints for over a year now I can honestly say I have never seen a child attending Footprints near the external gates (other than leaving with their parent) or indeed playing unsupervised in the playground, security is exceptional. Indeed a friend of ours picking up our child was stopped and questioned why they were leaving with our child, they had the required password and Footprints had been contacted to advise who they were being picked up by, that to me is quite reassuring. Living very close by I see staff walking past daily with the children and are always interacting with them, and whilst they may not have fancy carriages to transport the babies and children into town, it's nice to see them use the pavement, and engaging with the children rather than each other and their mobile phones. All the staff I have come across engage with our daughter and in deed when we bump into them in town on the weekend will always say hello. The staff seem to truly enjoy what they do. Of all the nurseries my wife and I visited Footprints, we felt, was best for our daughter. She is about to move up into the toddlers now, is happier than ever, and is developing at a rate we are happy with. We'll miss the nice comments Poppy has on her daily report from her current key worker, but are sure we'll get some more nice comments from her new one. I couldn’t recommend Footprints more, and any more children we may have will more than likely attend Footprints as well.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Beech Hall School

Macclesfield SK10 2EG, UK – 01625 422192

My 5 year old son was attending a very good local state school last year. It was clear he is quite advanced with is reading, maths and IT but less confident with group activities and extra curricular sports. He now attends Beech Hall School. With the small class sizes, he is no longer lost in the system and is given school work that matches and stretches his abilities, with individual teacher attention, support and guidance. His teachers work very closely with us and we meet with them regularly to discuss his development. Beech Hall offers many after school extra curricular group activities and now his confidence is blossoming and he is learning to swim, learning extra french, is a member of the baking club, and he can not wait to join judo and chess club. He mixes with all years of the school, mostly with the next years above him in group activities and seems to know everyone by name and everyone seems to know him. We have never seen him so happy and he loves being rewarded and achieving points for his own house by doing good academic work and for being kind, thoughtful and polite to his school colleagues and peers. The school provides a wonderful opportunity for him and it is fantastic.

Friendly, small classes, and no one slips through the net. Tolerant yet disciplined. Now under the new head Mrs Yandell whom the children respect. My son has been at the school for a number of years and is now in his final year, I can only praise the school for outstanding pastoral care, and the will of all to take responsibility. A warm school under good disciplined direction.
