AF Association News & Events
All-Party Parliamentary Group on AF
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on AF (APPG-AF) champions awareness of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) from within the heart of Westminster.
The APPG-AF looks at a number of ways in which we can improve the treatment and diagnosis of AF and help prevent stroke. We also work with a broad range of parliamentarians from across the political spectrum to highlight the issue of AF from within parliament.
The elected Chair of the Group is Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield. The Vice Chairs are Labour MP for Bridgend Madeleine Moon, Conservative Peer Lord Colwyn and Liberal Democrat Peer Lord Jones of Cheltenham.

Write to your MP
You can get involved by signing up to our call to action, and writing personally to your local MP, urging them to contact their local NHS trust asking what plans are in place to improve identifying, diagnosing, and treating people who are presenting with symptoms of atrial fibrillation.
You can find the email address of your local MP here.
