GP practices will identify patients who are likely to be eligible to take part. We are looking for patients who are:
- Aged 70 or over
- Not currently taking blood thinning (anticoagulant) medication
You can still take part if you are taking aspirin, clopidogrel or ticagrelor. These are anti-platelet medications not anticoagulant medication – they thin the blood in a different way.
If you think you already have AF you can still take part in the trial so long as you are not currently taking blood thinning (anticoagulation) medication like rivaroxaban, edoxaban, apixaban, warfarin. All other medication is okay.
