Well 2017 Patient's Day is now over and I do hope all who went enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks you to the few who made the effort to come to supper on Saturday evening especially new Pink Carnationeers Kerri and Pete. Quality rather than quantity lol.
I had to leave earlier than I wanted to so missed the last two sessions but was gratified to note that what I have been saying for years about the importance of anticoagulation in AF and the unsuitability of aspirin is still current thinking.
Also that there is no cure for AF and that all treatment is about improving symptoms and quality of life. I hope the message about life choices such as smoking and alcohol are taken on board and that the help available regarding the mental side of AF is carried through.
As usual thanks to all the organisers especially Trudie our CEO and Matt our indefatigable GP and hero of the hour. I look forward to the day when all CCG areas are run like Bradford.
Bob D aka Jack. (in joke I'm afraid).
You are not alone!
