All-Party Parliamentary Groups
All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arrhythmias

The APPG-Arrhythmias was established earlier this year, chaired by Mike Gapes MP.  The Group represents all those affected by, and involved in the care of, arrhythmias (including bradycardia, tachycardia, SVT, syncope, RAS, brugada, long QT, etc).
Arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders) are a critical health concern, affecting more than two million people in the UK alone. There are many issues from a diagnosis, management and service provision perspective that need to be addressed for the benefit of patients and the NHS.
All-Party Parliamentary Group on AF

The APPG-AF looks at a number of ways in which we can improve the treatment and diagnosis of AF and help prevent AF-related stroke. We also work with a broad range of Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum to highlight the issue of AF from within Parliament, chaired by Barry Sheerman MP.
Postural Tachycardia Syndrome Booklet
This booklet is for individuals who have been diagnosed with postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS). It has been written to provide information on the symptoms, causes and treatment of this condition. It may also be of interest to families, friends and carers of people struggling with the condition.

Please share with your patients.
