CRY is now reviewing how public screening events could feasibly be held with new procedures for social distancing and PPE
Whilst, CRY has now established protocols for screening with social distancing and PPE, there are still a number of factors that have to be considered before we can start to offer public events.
All of CRY’s public screening events are held in venues such as offices, schools, universities, health centres, sports venues, gyms and we appreciate many of these facilities will no longer be available or seen as suitable venues for screening and the associated increase in footfall.
There are many other factors which need to be considered when holding public screening events, but, as long as the Government guidelines permit us to take forward public screenings, the key issue is now identifying suitable venues (i.e. venues large enough to accommodate social distancing rules, one way system, three waiting areas, separate entrance and exit, ample parking…).
Many of the screening events booked over the next 12 months may be unable to accommodate social distancing and will therefore have to be postponed, unless a more spacious venue can be found in time. However, our aim is to identify suitable facilities to enable regional screening centres to open up. As such, we would welcome being alerted to details of spacious, potentially appropriate venues close to you or to which you may have a personal or professional connection, which could be made available to CRY to help us re-establish the screening service.
While screening events are currently postponed and we are not in a position to offer any new bookings in your region, you can still register your interest by clicking here and we will email you when screening events are available again.
Due to this unprecedented and evolving situation of COVID-19, we will be reviewing the status of CRY’s screening programme on an ongoing basis.
As a team, we are doing our very best to monitor and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our services. In line with Government advice, the CRY office is closed but members of our staff are working from home and will be available to assist with any queries you may have, either via phone or email.
We appreciate your understanding at this time and we are sure you’ll agree that the health and wellbeing of all our supporters, staff and those who CRY strives to help on a daily basis, is our primary concern.
CRY holds ECG screening clinics for those aged 14 to 35 at a number of established locations around the UK including London. The CRY mobile screening unit facilitates various screening events at other locations in the UK – often organised by CRY supporters.
