Research from the UK suggests Pharmacy-led atrial fibrillation (AF) reviews have saved the NHS millions of pounds. The Stroke Association estimated that a pharmacist-led review of patients with AF saved over £82m in its first year of operations. The reviews weer conducted by clinical pharmacists and examined factors such as whether patients needed anticoagulants, required medication changes or needed referral for further assessment and care. It is thought that only half of all people who would benefit from anticoagulants to prevent AF-related stroke actually receive effective treatment with these drugs.  More information at
