Wish you were here?

Our social weekends away are a highlight of the year for many GUCHs, giving the opportunity for a much needed break and a chance to meet others born with a heart condition.

We always book the location based on suggestions from previous attendees but this year we would like to welcome recommendations from everyone.

If you think there is somewhere, within the UK (or perhaps further afield) that you know would be a great place to visit for a group of GUCHs in 2015 please let us know.

We are keen to find somewhere that's

  • Easily accessible by road and public transport
  • Will appeal to patients and families from a range of different backgrounds and ages
  • Can provide activities for everyone from super fit GUCHs to those who are currently very unwell
Email your suggestion to Helen at with a brief description of the place in mind and why you think it would be a good place to visit.

Our weekends away are always very popular so if you would like to attend the next one please let us know as soon as it is advertised. The first advertisement generally goes into the Winter issue of GUCH News so if you don't yet receive a copy, sign up now

The e-version goes out a week before the mailed copy so if you want the best chance to attend the weekend away click the box "I would prefer to receive GUCH News by email".
