“COLLABORATION IS KEY…”
 
The arrhythmia community suffered a great loss with the unexpected death of Dr Adam Fitzpatrick on Saturday 18 January 2020.
 
Arrhythmia Alliance and its sister charities have lost a passionate and committed member of our team. The healthcare community has lost an exceptional doctor and the arrhythmia world will be a poorer place without Dr Fitzpatrick. However, his legacy will live on with the ground-breaking research he published and his unique way of improving and delivering first-class arrhythmia services.

Dr Fitzpatrick believed in collaboration and he was passionate about bringing people together to achieve greater results. He sought perfection and was never satisfied, always seeking new, innovative ways of improving healthcare.
