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.
Charity information: Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)
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.
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.

We offer a unique service to the public as CRY is the only charity offering proactive cardiac testing to young people.
CRY is best know in the UK for raising awareness, support and screening. However, internationally we are better known for our publications and research findings which are changing international policies and procedures on the way we test young people.
