AF Screening Pledge

The current UK National Screening Committee (NSC) recommendation on AF screening in adults does not recommend systematic population screening.

AF Association, Arrhythmia Alliance and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Atrial Fibrillation are campaigning for the NSC to reconsider this decision. The AF screening pledge is to pledge support for a commissioned national screening programme for those over 65 that are at risk of AF.
