Healthcare Pioneers 2017

We are delighted to announce the launch of our 2017 Healthcare Pioneers Report showcasing best practice in AF in the UK. 

















Thank you to all of those who submitted a case study.  The submissions were all of excellent quality, however our AF expert judging panel have chosen the one’s that identify best practice in delivering care for AF patients from identification, diagnosis through to treatment – perfecting the patient care pathway.

The Healthcare Pioneers report is developed by the AF Association and endorsed by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Atrial Fibrillation (APGAF) and identifies best practice in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and is used as a benchmark across CCG's to improve on how they deliver their services.


All healthcare professionals are urged to submit early for their entry to be considered for Healthcare Pioneers Report 2018 – please e mail becky@heartrhythmalliance.org for an application.
