Did anyone see the debate last night in the House of Lords? I switched on half way through so missed a lot. They mainly talked about how prevalent AF was, how many people were undiagnosed, and how many were not anti-coagulated properly and how GP's were still prescribing Aspirin, and also the general lack of understanding in the medical profession.
The Lord who did a lot of the speaking has had AF for 20 years and just had a small stroke which affected his one eye. He seemed quite knowledgable at first except he described Warfarin as "blood thinners", then went on to say that he hoped people could be changed over to new NOACs instead. He then went on to say that maybe the NOACs were the same, he didn't know, in which case why did he say it? Anyhow, even though the grasp of detail was a bit short, they are bringing AF to the fore which is great.
If they haven't already, some of these lords could do with a bit of help and advice from the AFA. But well done anyhow. Never watched the Lords before for more than 30 seconds, it was so civilised compared to the Commons, they actually talked to each other and were polite, just like normal people .
