Information & Advice For Arrhythmia Patients
Do you have an arrhythmia? Do you have SVT / PSVT? Do you have an ICD/S-ICD? Would you like to learn more about your condition?
If you have answered YES to any or all of these questions, then join us and hundreds of other patients at Arrhythmia Alliance Patients Day 2019.
World renowned medical experts will be sharing their knowledge and talking about up to date research. Learn more about your condition, how you can better manage it and what treatment options are available to you. Patients Day gives you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your concerns with doctors and to meet other patients in a similar situation to you in a relaxed, comfortable environment.
This year, we have added new topics and invited new speakers, so even if you have attended Patients Day in the past, you will still learn something new.
If you or someone close to you lives with an arrhythmia, we are confident you will experience a profound sense of relief when you attend this year's Arrhythmia Alliance Patients Day.
Based on your feedback and to hold last year's price, tea and coffee will be available throughout the day for you to purchase. Complimentary lunch which will include water will be provided. Water will also be provided in all meeting rooms.
Online registration is now closed - There are still places availiable on the day - Registration opens at 10:00 Sunday 6th October - Please make your way to the 'New Registrations booth' - Cost £35.
What past attendees have found useful about attending Arrhythmia Alliance Patients Day:
“Hearing the latest research and to be informed about the range of treatments used. It was helpful to meet other patients to be able to gauge and be assured regarding the severity and suitability of treatment our daughter is receiving.”
“Meeting other parents with children with CPVT. Finding out more about the Arrhythmia Alliance. Seeing our daughter’s consultant explaining CPVT in more detail, feeling reassured by the treatment our daughter has received so far.”
“Have attended for many years and always very satisfied when day finished.”
“Thank you for holding this. I don’t feel so alone”
