Costs Should Not Stand in Way of Screening for Hidden Heart Conditions

New research confirms screening Iis cost effective and should be made available to all teens and young adults

The Government has “got it wrong” when it comes to listening to the recommendations of its National Screening Committee regarding the implementation of a UK cardiac screening program for your young people. That’s the verdict of the leading charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) that claims NSC reviews are based on flawed data and lack of access to new research.

Supporting its calls for greater access to a cost-effective and life-saving service, important new data analysed by researchers from CRY has just been presented at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions (November 2016), adding further weight to the argument that proactive cardiac screening must be offered to all young people whether elite athletes, grass-roots players or the general population.
