The Department does not hold this information.

The United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UK NSC) advises Ministers and the National Health Service in all four United Kingdom countries on all aspects of screening. The UK NSC will review the evidence for screening for the major causes of sudden cardiac death in young people between the ages of 12 to 39 years in 2018/19 as per its three yearly cycle.
