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!

Dental Surgeries

Diplomat House Dental Clinic

Oakfield St, Blandford Forum DT11 7EX, UK – 01258 456901

Urgently needed an appointment, and my dentist couldn't provide one, so I saw a dentist here. Absolutely wonderful service, and made me feel comfortable. Absolutely would recommend.

The staff and Dentists have been absolutely brilliant in their care for me. Routine appointments have been organised and a reminder sent via text in plenty of time for any last minute adjustments. When I have needed emergency service the dentist rearranged his personal schedule to care for my needs.i have nothing but admiration for all the staff.

East Street Dental Practice

25-27 East St, Blandford Forum DT11 7DU, UK – 01258 452522

I went in this morning after finding a problem with one of my teeth last night. They managed to not only fit me in and see me immediately, but they also carried out the filling and repair right then and there! Iโ€™ve always found the staff and service here excellent, but today they went above and beyond!

Blandford Community Hospital

Milldown Rd, Blandford Forum DT11 7DD, UK – 01258 456541

I had foot surgery at this hospital. The whole experience was like visiting the spa in a 5 star hotel. The staff were very friendly and so professional. I have never felt so important or so well cared for. I am very grateful to Mr McCulloch and his Team for the care and treatment I received.

I suspect it is hard to love a nurse. We get up early or we work all night. We come home late and are too tired to cook. We work extra because we know there are sick people who need us. We miss weekend events, holidays, birthdays. We don't get too excited over your minor "boo-boo". We have seen far worse. We don't want to talk when we come home. We have talked all day. We don't want to move when we come home. We have moved all day. It may seem that we have left all our caring, our heart, and our love at work, then have come home to you empty. We probably have. But we don't tell you that many times at work that we are mired by anxiety, we are scared. Scared we are missing something. Scared we will let our patient down or worse. Scared that we'll have to deal with angry or violent patients and families. We don't tell you how the staffing crisis makes us cry on the way to work, to do a job we love, but now we are terrified to do because it is breaking us down while putting the most vulnerable at risk. I suspect it is hard to love a nurse, but know this: Your nurse needs your love. Needs your understanding. Needs to know that you "get it". Needs to be the one taken care of every once and a while. Needs someone else to take charge of the details because doing it herself constantly is exhausting. Needs his/her feet rubbed. (Hint hint) Needs a shoulder to cry on when she can't even tell you why she's grieving. Needs you to do the hardest work you may ever do, which is to love a nurse. I would like to thank those of you out there who love us and let us do this work, this calling, this life: Nursing.๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงกโค๏ธ Copy and paste if you are nurse or love a nurse!!!.....I am not a nurse ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿจ #copied

Then this year we used them do demolish our bungalow so that we could build our new home. Thank you for your expertise and your friendly service. Kind Regards Jonathan

Absolutely great service, staff went above and beyond to make sure we were having an enjoyable visit. The food was delicious, staff were friendly and the waiting times were minimal. Excellent change from when we visited last year

nice enough and staff friendly. but far too large portions and too expensive.

My son has been going to Capers for a while now and he loves it. The staff are amazing and really look after the children and make them feel at ease. The snacks they offer after school are great and the cost is incredible. Thank you for making my son feel so settled in! Recommend Capers to everyone.

Primary and Secondary Schools

The Blandford School

Milldown Rd, Blandford Forum DT11 7SQ, UK – 01258 451121

I have recently joined the school as a student and so far so good. The facilities are wheelchair accessible and we pride ourselves upon modern technology to work with. The teachers are quality mentors and most are very helpful. The only thing I would say that is a negative is some of the students get in the wrong crowd and spoils the potential and chances to do well. They do sanction those who don't behave properly swiftly and securely. I would recommend this school.

school is bad. it offers no support for others and it does nothing to help students they are idiots and don't help anyone because they are greedy for money

Pimperne C of E VC Primary School

Durweston C Of E Primary School

Church Rd, Blandford Forum DT11 0QA, UK – 01258 452277

Both of my children are thriving in this delightful village school and benefit from the superb opportunities in and outside of the curriculum. Staff are kind and caring with a real enthusiasm and drive for children to be the best they can be. A realistic balance of expectations from all learners.

Kids love it because of the inclusive and varied activities, parents love it because the kids love it - and they achieve great results. Great engagement from the staff and Headteacher. Brilliant environment for learning and personal development (onsite preschool, forest school, play equipment, huge playing fields, farm visits etc.).

Public & Preparatory Schools

Bryanston School

Blandford Forum DT11 0PX, UK – 01258 452411

Lovely grounds and an interesting school. Seek out the old school photos in the corridors. They don't wear school uniforms so the fashion and haircuts are a wonderful historic document (and hilarious).

It is a great sports camp.

Knighton House School and The Orchard Pre-prep

Durweston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PY, UK – 01258 452065

Knighton House is a every parents idea of the perfect country girls prep school (ages 7 to 13, plus nursery from 3 to 7). Excellent academic results achieved in a nurturing environment. Plenty to occupy day, flexi and boarders alike. A focus on the child with small class sizes (average 8 to 10); wonderful comfy dorms, ponies, rabbits, pigmy goats all in 30 acres of beautiful Dorset countryside. I speak from experience as I have 3 children at the school, who moved from a London day-school environment and have flourished at Knighton.
