SADS Database – Information Leaflet
Clinical Audit plays an important role in ensuring people are provided with the best possible care. The NHS Information Centre National Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) Database records information from the post mortem examination by the Coroner’s pathologist and any extra examination of the heart by an expert cardiac pathologist. At present we do not know how many deaths in the UK are due to SADS. The database will help us collect this information and improving our understanding of inherited cardiovascular disease. Further information about the audit including the information that is collected and how the information is kept safe is available in an Information leaflet. The leaflet can be accessed via the following link
