Heart Rhythm Week

Heart Rhythm Week (formerly Arrhythmia Awareness Week) is a national event which gives anyone with an interest in heart rhythm disorders the opportunity to raise awareness and promote better understanding of arrhythmic conditions.

The first Awareness Week was held in 2004 following the formation of an alliance between charitable organisations with a common interest in arrhythmias.  This group successfully lobbied for a new Chapter on Arrhythmias and Sudden Cardiac Death in the National Service Framework (NSF) for Coronary Heart Disease, which was published in 2005.

Arrhythmia Alliance (A-A) became a registered charity following the first Awareness Week to ensure that the Quality Requirements for diagnosis, treatment, care and support as written in the Chapter would be implemented across England.
