It's been set up by the University Campus Suffolk and The Somerville Foundation and will be the first of it's kind in the UK.

The facility will screen people for heart conditions like those which have affected England cricketer James Taylor and footballer Fabrice Muamba.

University Campus Suffolk will be using the same state of the art facilities to investigate congenital heart disease that will used on the new Master's Degree programme from September specialising in sports science and coaching in partnership with Ipswich Town Football Club.

Dr Christopher Turner told Heart: "50 years ago probrably only 20% of children born with heart conditions would actually survive but now 90% survive so now we are looking at treating more adults."
