Totally Health, the UK’s leading provider of clinical health coaching via the NHS, has developed a pioneering new programme to help patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) manage their condition and reduce the risk of stroke via an upskilled primary care team combined with intensive clinical health coaching. The landmark service will be delivered in Stowhealth GP practice by Totally Health.
There is an estimated 1.4 million people living with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in England, however over a third of these people are undiagnosed1. Statistics suggest that 1 in 10 of the over 65s are affected by the condition, making it one of the most common forms of abnormal heart rhythm. The associated risks and harmful complications are significant, with AF patients having a five-fold higher risk of stroke. In addition, AF related strokes are often more severe with higher mortality and greater disability, requiring a longer period of rehabilitation and putting significant pressure on social and health care services to provide intervention and support.
Totally plc (LON:TLY) addresses the challenges of increased demand on healthcare services by delivering high-quality planned, urgent and insourcing healthcare across the UK and Ireland.
