Position: Member of the RateAF Trial Patient and Public Involvement team
Location: Birmingham, UK
I became a member of the RateAF Trial Patient and Public Involvement team right at the start of the trial. I have thoroughly enjoyed the involvement, the most interesting and rewarding part of the trial for me was the part I played in the Patient focus groups, listening to members of the group talking about the impact AF had made to their quality of life and how the focus groups had improved their confidence which had helped their quality of life. I am a retired registered nurse, the last 18 years of which I spent working in general practice. I have also been diagnosed with AF.
