    #KnowYourPulse during Heart Rhythm Week

    Official figures show that more than 420,000 people across England have undiagnosed irregular heart rhythm, which can cause a stroke if not detected and treated. This week south Londoners can have a free, 30-second pulse rhythm check at selected locations.

    A fresh drive has been launched to identify cases of undiagnosed Atrial Fibrillation across south London as part of Arrhythmia Alliance’s Heart Rhythm Week.
    Several Health Innovation Network partners are putting on events where the public can attend to have their pulse rhythm checked.

    Arrhythmia Alliance World Heart Rhythm Week is taking place this week 4 – 10 June 2018.  Health Innovation Network partners are putting on events where the public can attend to have their pulse rhythm checked in an attempt to detect AF in south London.
