The experiences of people with atrial fibrillation: Managing symptoms and accessing healthcare over the COVID-19 pandemic

We are recruiting individuals with atrial fibrillation (AF) to take part in an online recorded interview about their experiences of managing AF during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re over 18, live in the UK, speak, read and write fluent English, and have AF (paroxysmal, persistent or permanent), we’d love to hear from you.
