Information & Advice For Arrhythmia Patients

Patient and carer stories

Without your stories we have no voice...

Can you help?

Share your story and help others who may be awaiting or undergoing treatment for an arrhythmia. Your words can support and reassure patients on the road through treatment as well as those newly diagnosed or caring for someone with an arrhythmia. Many of the people we speak to on our helpline are unsure about what to expect and the treatment options available to them; your words present a real-life account that can be shared to promote awareness and improve understanding of cardiac arrhythmias.

Help us to help others, with your consent we will use your words and your voice as ammunition to promote awareness and lobby for improvements in diagnosis and management of cardiac arrhythmia.

Email your account to or write to Patient Stories at Arrhythmia Alliance, Unit 6B, Essex House, Cromwell Business Park, Chipping Norton, OX7 5SR
