About Us

This practice was established in Ruardean more than 50 years ago and expanded over a period of time to incorporate Cinderford. In 2020 we moved into Cinderford Medical Centre in Valley Road but we maintain our branch surgery in Ruardean. In 2023 we expanded to Westbury Surgery. Patients can be seen at Cinderford, Ruardean and Westbury on Severn.

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 3 partners.

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

We have 4 core values:

  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Excellence
  • Teamwork

Cinderford Medical Centre was purpose built in 2020 accommodating two separate practices in a dementia-friendly building with facilities for visiting mobile health services and a community garden to the rear.

A branch surgery at Ruardean is a purpose built facility on a site central to the village. Another branch surgery at Westbury on Severn is located on the outskirts of Westbury on Severn.

We dispense from both of our sites.
