Description of Toolkit:
This toolkit will provide commissioners with the tools required in order to commission an effective service for the prevention of stroke in people with atrial fibrillation (AF). These tools can be accessed through a series of hyperlinks throughout the document or via the website. An effective service improves quality outcomes for patients with AF and reduces health and social care costs by reducing patient's risk of stroke through service improvements.

Each will be discussed in more detail in the following hyperlinks and documents.
