We are a family Medical Practice with approximately 6,100 patients in The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. This website provides information for patients and prospective patients.
The Practice is a non-limited partnership. The doctors and staff are proud to offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children and expectant mothers, diabetes and asthma sufferers and for patients needing minor surgery.
We aim to offer a high standard of patient-centred healthcare and treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
We feel it is important that you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff wear a name badge and are happy to identify themselves on the telephone.
If you are interested in registering then please visit the practice ensuring that you bring with you the proof of identity as listed on the Registration page.
At both surgeries car parking spaces for the disabled are marked near the front door. Patient services are provided at ground floor level and a disabled patients' WC is provided. If access proves difficult for any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider suggestions for improvement.
The GPs of the Forest of Dean have been offered an opportunity to take part in a project to improve patient access to primary care services for the residents of the Forest of Dean. Extra GP and Nurse clinics will be held during normal hours, and additional appointments will also be offered at one of the Forest of Dean Surgeries between 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm on weekdays and on Saturday mornings. Patients registered with any GP Surgery within the Forest of Dean will be able to have an appointment at these extra clinics.

Patient Participation Group
We are at present in the process of setting up a patient participation group where we will discuss ideas regarding patient needs and improvements to patient services. This group will act as the communicators between patients and doctors.
If you are interested in joining the group please contact Linda Baldwin at the surgery on 01594 833255
