National Accident Helpline

Helpful, comprehensive and prompt service - got me a solicitor referral within a day

I called NAH following an accident at work, unsure of how long i'd be unable to work and suffering pain from injuries sustained. NAH filter calls - firstly taking the caller's details and the basic case details, then referring to one of their legally-qualified staff to call you back. I received the call-back within an hour and was informed that my details would be passed to a particular firm of solicitors, who would be in contact the following day. The following day, I did indeed receive the solicitor's call and had a half-hour consultation. I was informed of the steps that would need to be followed and the costs (and the way that the costs would be recovered) were all explained - essentially it is 'no win, no fee', but due to legal technicalities the contract with the solicitors does have to state that one is being charged. I have no concerns anyway. I am awaiting the written confirmation that the solicitor's firm will handle my case - expected to be received within 4-5 working days of the first consultation.

Dino PC

Dino PC - customise your computer order (great) but take care of the cost

I started out ordering a £299 PC, but Dino PC offer a 'customise' service, which is a very good idea if you would like better-performing internals (it saves hassle with buying and installing upgrades later on), but take care - the extra costs can mount up. I could easily have doubled the price of my order by taking the best of the upgrade options. However, I have no complaints with what I got for my money (£437).
My only niggle (and it's something that Dino PC do mention - a backlog of orders) was the amount of time it took them to build my machine - two weeks. Oh - and the £25 delivery charge on top. This may be transparent pricing - maybe couriers really do charge that much - but similar PCs were available via Amazon with delivery on identical terms for £5 (and no waiting a fortnight).
The computer arrived very well packaged and was simple to set up (although I needed to acquire a USB mouse). I am a satisfied customer and hope this PC lasts me a decade like its predecessor.

Pharmacy2U

Very good, as long as you buy in bulk

If you know what kind of product you are after - what active ingredients, for instance - then the website will find an appropriate product for you, even if the brand name isn't one you have ever heard of. The upside is that the prices can be better than for the equivalent top-brand product you would have bought on the High Street, but you need to be careful of the postal charges. If you are buying more than £35-worth of goods, postage is free, but as my order came to a fraction under that (despite a bulk-purchase of my target product), I had to pay £3.83 in postage charges. This is inevitable with mail-order or internet purchases, so I can hardly complain and at the end of the day I still paid less per unit than I would have on the High Street (and for a product made by the very same company as also makes the top-branded product, I think). Delivery was made within 2 working days, as explained, so I can't fault the service. This is a good website and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to other people, but as it's specialised to pharmaceutical-type products and I bought in bulk, I won't need to use them again for more than a year.
