The needs of the patient: What’s changed
A report on the experience of patients in the UK during the pandemic and recommendations on how to meet their changing needs during subsequent waves.
A roundtable of patient group leaders, including Trudie Lobban MBE FRCP Founder and CEO of the AF Association, met to review how the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people with chronic conditions, such as atrial fibrillation.
They concluded: “By presenting the key learnings from our panel of patient association leaders, we hope we will help sharpen this focus on patient needs. Although the pandemic has exacerbated or created some tough health issues for patients and carers, our panellists believe that by focusing on patient needs as we work together collaboratively and make improvements, we can significantly expand access and improve care for patients, especially those who are most vulnerable. Together, we can help our health service recover and come back stronger than ever.”
