CRY screened 98 young people for undiagnosed heart conditions in Ealing on Sunday, November 5.

Two people were referred for further investigation and one will have a repeat test in a year’s time.

The free screenings for 14-35-year-olds, sponsored by Tom and Claire’s fund, took place at the Florence Road surgery and Ellen Clabburn said: “We’d like to thank all those who have raised the funds which make the event possible.

“Because of people’s generosity, the Fund has enabled CRY to screen more than 200 people a year since 2009, over 2,600 in total.

“We appreciate that there are lots of other causes but we’d ask people to consider supporting the Fund. The screenings are always over-subscribed and, with growing awareness of the complexity of cardiac conditions in the young, there is a need and demand for such events.

“We’re also very grateful to the CRY team for their professionalism and care on the day and to Dr David Evans and his team for yet again giving us a base for the screenings.”

There will be further screenings in Ealing in 2018.
