Recognition of knowledge and practical
experience in the field of cardiac rhythm management.
British Heart Rhythm Society (formerly known as Heart Rhythm UK) is dedicated to improving all aspects of arrhythmia care and electrical device based therapies along with acting as a unifying focus for those professionals involved.
The society was formed in 2005 by the amalgamation of the British Pacing and Electrophysiology Group (BPEG), the British Association of Arrhythmia Nurses (BANA) and the UK Interventional Electrophysiology Society (UKICES).
British Heart Rhythm Society has close working relationships with Arrhythmia Alliance representing patient groups, medical regulatory and advisory bodies (MHRA) and with colleagues in the medical equipment and device manufacturing industries (ABHI).
We also work closely with The British Cardiovascular Society which is the voice for all those working in the fields of cardiovascular care and research in the UK; we aim to represent and support both the professionals who work in cardiology and the patients for whom we want to encourage the best possible treatment.
