Campaign for free prescriptions for GUCH patients
The Grown Up Congenital Heart Patients Association (GUCH) is a UK charity, founded in 1993 to provide information and support for young people and adults who were born with a heart condition, and their families.

For the vast majority of people, decisions on whether to smoke, drink or take regular exercise give us a choice as to whether or not we look after our hearts. Those born with a congenital heart condition are denied this choice and, in adult life, face many difficulties. I do not believe that these difficulties should include having to pay prescription charges for the drugs necessary to keep them alive.
