AF Information & Advice For Patients
Do you have atrial fibrillation (AF) or know someone who does? Do you worry you are at risk of an AF-related stroke?
Would you like to learn more about AF and how to improve living with AF?
If you have answered YES to any or all of these questions, then join us and hundreds of other patients at the AF Association Patients Day 2019.
World renowned medical experts will be sharing their knowledge and talking about up to date research. Learn more about AF, how you can better manage it and what treatment options are available to you. Patients Day gives you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your concerns with doctors and to meet other patients in a similar situation to you in a relaxed, comfortable environment.
This year, we have added new topics and invited new speakers, so even if you have attended Patients Day in the past, you will still learn something new.
If you or someone close to you has AF, we are confident you will experience a profound sense of relief when you attend this year's AF Association Patients Day.
Registration is £35 per person. Based on your feedback and to hold last year's price, tea and coffee will be available throughout the day for you to purchase. Complimentary lunch which will include water will be provided. Water will also be provided in all meeting rooms.
What past attendees have found useful about attending AF Association Patients Day:
"This was our first visit and my husband found it very reassuring having been diagnosed with combined SVT and AF last year. Extremely informative."
"Even though we've come for a number of years, I always learn something new so thank you."
