About Us

This practice was established in Ruardean more than 50 years ago and expanded over a period of time to incorporate Cinderford. In 1977 we moved into Cinderford Health Centre but we maintain our branch surgery in Ruardean.

Today the practice partnership (not limited) is known as Forest Health Care and we work as a team. We are a group practice run by 4 partners.

We aim to provide high quality family care for all of our patients.

We have 4 core values:

  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Excellence
  • Teamwork

Cinderford Health Centre was purpose built in 1977 accommodating two separate group practices together with all their ancillary services. In addition the Centre provides offices and consulting facilities for the District Nurses, Chiropody, Physiotherapy, Orthoptics and Dental services; together with outpatient facilities for visiting consultants and health professionals.

The branch surgery at Ruardean is a purpose built facility on a site central to the village.

We dispense from both of our sites.
