Sadly in 2014 a 17 year old member of Bramhall Cricket Club died suddenly with a heart condition normally associated with old age. BCC now hold yearly ECG screening sessions aimed at 14-35 year olds to detect such underlying conditions.
As 3HG members help BCC with their other charity work - the Christmas Tree collection for St Ann's Hospice - they are offering scan slots for us to use on 30th September and 1st October.......If you fancy getting a checkout and your 'ECG Badge' please Click HERE

At a screening, you or your son/daughter will receive an electrocardiogram (ECG) that examines the electrical activity of the heart, and if required, an echocardiogram. The ECG is a simple, non-invasive and painless test that will only take a few minutes to complete and is performed by qualified cardiac physiologists. The ECG results will be examined by a specialist doctor in conjunction with a personal and family history questionnaire.If a more detailed picture is needed, some individuals will be required to undertake a follow-up echocardiogram, where an ultrasound scan of the heart will look at its size, structure and blood flow, normally taking about 30 minutes to perform. All results suggesting an abnormality will then be sent to CRY Consultant Cardiologist Professor Sanjay Sharma, a leading expert on inherited cardiac conditions. Important InformationYou will receive a pending email which means your appointment has been booked (please check your junk email folder if you do not receive this in your inbox).
Nearer the time of the screening you will be sent a confirmation email; this will include a medical questionnaire and consent form.PLEASE NOTE:Please download the documents, read carefully, complete the required information and take them with you on the day.
