Links to Third Party websites
Our websites contain links to other websites such as affiliate groups and organisations. These links are provided for further information only and the content of such websites is not approved by or the responsibility of Arrhythmia Alliance. These links are not necessarily permanent and can be advertised to members through various electronic communications.
Arrhythmia Alliance relies upon the expertise of the Executive Committee for publishing the best available information. In the first instance, Arrhythmia Alliance's preference is to use data that has been directly sourced or approved by one of its committee members. However, information produced by the NHS, NICE, arrhythmia societies and heart rhythm organisations provide a valuable source of national research, data and guidelines.
