This Steering Group was established in conjunction with the Peninsula Heart and Stroke Network to look at the unique needs of the expanding group of Grown Ups with Congenital Heart disease (GUCH). This group comprises representation from the key areas of service provision for GUCH patients and are working to develop a care pathway which will address the future needs of adults with congenital heart disease across the South West.
The aims of the GUCH Steering Group are to:
Clarify and understand the number of patients who are currently being treated, understand their current needs and predict their future needs.
Map the existing services that the patients are accessing, identifying facilities and resources that are part of those services.
Review and agree the models of care of the service.
Make recommendations on the way forward.
