Patient Support Groups
Information and support groups form an invaluable service to arrhythmia patients. Meetings present a forum for patients, their carers, friends and families to gain information, emotional support, share common experiences and learn more about their condition.
To this end, AFA is working with patients, carers and medical professionals to help establish local AF Patient Support groups which are supported through affiliation to the Arrhythmia Alliance - The Heart Rhythm Charity, to which AFA is affiliated (www.heartrhythmcharity.org.uk).
