Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

New CRY Centre at St George's Hospital

CRY needs to establish a new CRY Centre for Inherited Cardiac Conditions and Sports Cardiology and requires funding in the region of £760,000 to do this. A new centre will allow CRY to conduct more screening clinics and will also provide a base for CRY’s research team to work together.

Situation

Due to the expansion of CRY's screening and research programme, CRY needs to develop a new Centre at St George's Hospital as we have outgrown our current centre. On average, around 2,000 people a year, from around the UK, are referred to CRY’s Centre after a diagnosis or a young sudden cardiac death in their family. This figure is growing year-on-year. With a new centre, we will be able to expand on this number.

Solution

The new Centre will allow CRY to screen even more young people and allow us to deal with more referrals than we currently do, which will reduce the waiting time for bereaved families to be seen.
