Now is the Time - to support Arrhythmia Alliance's Manifesto to save lives

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly due to a malfunction of the heart’s electrical system.  The malfunction that causes SCA is a life-threatening abnormal heart rhythm; an arrhythmia.

STARS is working alongside our sister charity, Arrhythmia Alliance, to ensure the long-term survival of resuscitated SCA patients. 

Join us in this campaign to ensure that 50% of sudden cardiac arrest victims in the UK, with a shockable heart rhythm, will return home alive and neurologically intact.


Please read this Manifesto and sign up to show your support here
