Great Oaks is on the outskirts of Coleford and exists thanks to the vision of the Great Oaks committee and resolute generosity of the people of the Forest of Dean. Fundraising began in 1999 and a pilot scheme for day care started with two patients and a small group of nurses and volunteers in March 2002. With the experiences gained from our very first patients and their carers we have grown our services based on the needs of the patients we serve.
Our team of specially trained nurses, diversional therapist, complementary therapists, social worker and volunteers supported by chiropodist and chaplains, aim to ease the problems of living with a life shortening condition. Care is tailored to suit the needs of each individual accessing our services.
