AF Ambassadors

The Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Ambassador role has been created by the Innovation Agency, in partnership with the Stroke Association, to prevent strokes – saving lives and avoiding life-changing disabilities.

2 members of our team are AF Champions and soon will get trained to be ‘Heart Hero’s’ for the Agency as well.

Our ‘champions’ go out into the community and use small hand-held devices to primarily detect atrial fibrillation, but also heart rate and pulse, all of which can predict increased risk of stroke. If any of the parameters are outside of the normal range or if AF is detected, the results are emailed to the individual and they are advised to follow up with their GP for further assessment and treatment if necessary.
