Yesterday (Friday 2nd Dec, 10-12) we had our first meeting at the RD&E with a talk from the recently appointed 2nd Electrophysiologist, an introduction to the 2 Arrythmia Nurses - Alex & Lynne and a talk from 'our' Bob representing the AFA. Judging by the question and answers the sessions were very well received and it was proposed that we meet again on an on-going basis, probably 6 monthly.
The meeting was oversubscribed and I know there is a waiting list so the intention is to repeat the exact session sometime in January - will let you know! If there is anyone on the forum who is interested in attending and has not already received an invitation to the first meeting, you can register your interest (asap please) with Lynne at email@example.com
Please keep your email very brief and confine it to registering your interest in joining the Support Group. Lynne is part-time and has a heavy work-load.
I know there were a few people who were interested but unable to attend on that day who may not already be on Lynne's mailing list.
For future meetings we may be able to have a larger room, should interest be maintained so there will be just one meeting every 6 months or so - not 2.
For your information - I have agreed to be Patient Lead and Lynne will be clinical lead for this group. If you have any queries please feel free to PM me.
Hope you all have AF free week-end, very best wishes - CD
