AFA Aims

The Atrial Fibrillation Association (AFA) is a UK registered charity which focuses on raising awareness of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) by providing information and support materials for patients and medical professionals involved in detecting, diagnosing and managing Atrial Fibrillation.

AFA works closely with medical professionals, Department of Health, government, NHS Trusts, PCTs, patients, carers, patient support group members and allied groups.

All information booklets published by AFA have been approved by an AF medical panel and endorsed by the Department of Health. The booklets currently available include titles on: Cardioversion of AF, Drug Treatments for AF, Blood Thinning for AF, two Checklists and an AF Patient Information booklet.

AFA is fortunate to have Professor A John Camm, Prof Richard Schilling and Mrs Jayne Mudd as Trustees and Baroness Smith of Gilmorehill as Patron.

Mrs Trudie Lobban MBE is the Chief Executive Officer and Mrs Jo Jerrome, the Information and Support Manager.

Quite simply,

“AF is the most common cardiac rhythm problem and causes considerable misery for many people. The AFA will help patients to understand and get access to established and new or innovative treatments for AF”

Prof Richard Schilling - Consultant Cardiologist and Trustee, AFA
