AF Association News & Events
Patients Day 2016
Patients Day 2016 was held on Sunday 9 October 2016 at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Birmingham UK.
AF Association Patients Day 2016 was a huge success. We heard from some of the UK’s leading doctors who gave fantastic advice. We learnt how an ablation works and why we would have this procedure. We also spent some time discussing anticoagulation and the various options. Trudie gave us all motivation on how we can use our voice in the modern NHS. We have received some wonderful feedback and are already looking forward to next year.
Please check back regularly for updates and presentations.
