Cardiac Risk in the Young

27th August 2015

Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds fast track referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.

You can download the Heart Screening Booklet and additional information which give details on how to organize a screening event, the costs involved and what we require in terms of a suitable venue. As you will see there is a fixed cost of 3,500 for a day of screening which would screen up to 100 people.

There is also a link to the booking page of the web site for any local screening to swimmers
