The A. H. Couch Heart Trust (Auckland Hospital) (2015) is a charitable trust set up by Arthur Couch in 1972.


It invites applications for financial support towards cardiology continuing education and research within the Auckland region.


Grants up to $25,000 may be made on a case by case basis, subject to availability of funds and at the discretion of Trustees.

Typical grants have been towards small research projects or higher study, and recipients have included Cardiologists, Cardiology Registrars, Cardiac MRTs, Nurses, Cardiac Physiologists, Sonographers and Biostatisticians.


The Trust assisted the establishment of the inaugural cardiac catheterisation laboratory at North Shore Hospital.
