Patients, carers and their families enjoy coming to Patients Day where they can meet other families in similar situations to themselves, listen to top medical professionals about their conditions and ask any questions they may have in a comfortable environment.   

NEW for 2018! We will be running two STARS sessions, one dedicated to PoTS and the other dedicated to Syncope and Reflex Anoxic Seizures (RAS).  Please note you will be able to move freely between these sessions as well as the Arrhythmia Alliance and AF Association sessions if you wish to.
