Framework service specification for anticoagulation management of people with atrial fibrillation

This document is a framework service specification for the delivery of anticoagulation services for people with atrial fibrillation (AF).

The specification was developed by Anticoagulation UK in close collaboration with experts in anticoagulation from across primary, community and secondary care. The standards within this framework reflect best practice for services to adhere to, both during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

This project has been fully funded by Bayer plc. The content is independent of and not influenced by Bayer plc who checked the final document for technical accuracy only.
