The Somerville Foundation Community Forum aims to provide a place for GUCH patients and their families to establish contact with fellow members, communicate on a range of issues, share experiences and ideas and gain support.

It is the policy of the charity for the Community Forum to be a place where members can freely discuss issues relating to their health and as such the charity itself does not respond to messages on the board.

By using The Somerville Foundation Community Forum, you agree to the following terms of use:

We are unable to give medical advice; this is the role of your doctor. Since every case of congenital heart disease is different, any medical information displayed on the board should be used ONLY in conjunction with advice from your doctor. Such information cannot and should not be used to replace professional advice from your doctor. Fellow Community Forum members may wish to give medical advice however The Somerville Foundation is unable to take responsibility for this and should you act upon member advice you do so at your own risk.

The views expressed on this board are those of the participants and do not necessarily reflect those of the persons moderating this board or The Somerville Foundation.

  • Any message containing commercial advertisements or solicitations for money.
  • Messages relating to the management and administration of the Charity

We reserve the right to move any messages not suitable for certain forums within the Community Forum into a more appropriate area.

We have age specific forums, notably “39 plus” and “Teenagers” (for 13-19 year olds). We reserve the right to remove posts from members outside these age groups.

In accordance with our Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults policies, we reserve the right to contact appropriate authorities if we feel information has been disclosed on the Community Forum, or behaviour has been displayed that leads us to believe a member may pose a risk to themselves or others.

We reserve the right to delete member profiles and restrict access to the Community Forum if it is deemed that a gross breach, or repeated and deliberate breach of our terms and conditions has occurred.

We reserve the right to remove any posts advertising fundraising events of which The Somerville Foundation is not a beneficiary.

Abuse towards any moderator is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to delete any member abusing moderator staff or volunteers.
