New Atrial Fibrillation Patient Support Group launched in Frome

A new support group for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is meeting in Frome, Somerset on 3rd September.
Arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders) affect over two million people in the UK and atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia. People aged 40 and over have a one in four lifetime risk of developing AF and an increased risk of a life threatening AF-related stroke – the most severe type of stroke.
Facilitated by Helen Hodgson, a Cardiac Physiologist from the Royal United Hospital in Bath, the Frome AF Support Group will offer information about anticoagulation and other medicines, as well as the opportunity to meet other patients and carers and share experiences.
Helen Hodgson says “People diagnosed with AF often have many questions. My aim is to help provide them with the knowledge they need to support each other through their own experiences”
