Online Services

GP online services (Patient Services) allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • book or cancel appointments online
  • renew or order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at

How to sign-up

Welcome to Forest Health Care Online

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, from which we dispense.

Today the practice partnership (not limited) is known as Forest Health Care and we endeavour to work as a team. We are a group practice consisting of 3 male partners and 1 female partner. We aim to provide high quality family care for all of our patients.

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, District Midwives, Health Visitors, 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.
