SADS UK and the Guinness World Record Attempt and hopefully inspire more cardiac arrest survivors to register for the event https://www.suddencardiacarrestuk.org/guinness-world-record-attempt/
Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK in conjunction with The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre and SADS UK will be attempting to create a Guinness World Record of the largest gathering of cardiac arrest survivors in one place.
The attempt will take place on Saturday 9th June at the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, which is part of the Basildon Hospital campus.
Volunteers from the hospital and Essex Air Ambulance will be assisting with the event so that everyone knows what they are doing and it runs smoothly.
We would like to ensure that the event is worth travelling for and so are looking to add educational sessions and a party afterwards. Of course it’ll also be a great opportunity to meet survivors and others affected by an SCA – which is usually a great experience in itself!
