Atrial fibrillation Checks

Atrial fibrillation or AF is a heart rhythm disorder that causes the heart to beat in an irregular and often accelerated manner. Atrial fibrillation causes 20% of all strokes. Getting diagnosed in time is of vital importance, as you can avoid serious complications if you get the appropriate treatment on time. 75% of all strokes can even be prevented by early detection and active follow up.

Digital Heart rhythm checks (using the FibriCheck app) are being offered to people who currently present to a GP surgery with symptoms that suggest they may have an abnormal cardiac rhythm.
