manifestoSince CRY was founded in 1995 huge progress has been made in the identification and management of young people at risk of sudden cardiac death. This has been possible due to the 100s of MPs who have supported CRY, usually due to a personal experience of a tragedy through their family, friends or a member of their local constituency. The support of MPs is now more important than ever to ensure UK policies reflect best practice in taking forward a national strategy for the prevention of young sudden cardiac death.
