Welcome to AF Association®
Working to provide information, support and access to established, new or innovative treatments for Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have issued a new atrial fibrillation quality standard, NICE quality standard 93.
The quality standard covers the treatment and management of atrial fibrillation (including paroxysmal, persistent and permanent atrial fibrillation, and atrial flutter) in adults (18 years and older). It will cover adults with both valvular and non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
Adults with atrial fibrillation (AF) should be prescribed newer medications instead of aspirin for the prevention of stroke, says NICE.

As a registered charity, AF Association relies solely on supporters in order to continue providing valuable helpline services, information and educational activities.
AF Association has launched an online petition which calls for an early review of the UK National Screening Committee’s (NSC) policy on screening for AF in the over 65s. Please sign our petition and together we can make a difference and help to prevent suffering. Read more.
