What We Do

As nurse representatives for the BHRS, please contact us should you wish for our support or voice on council. As arrhythmia nurse specialists we have experience in many aspects of arrhythmia management within tertiary, secondary and primary care settings.  We have established local services and both hold qualifications fulfilling advanced nurse practitioner status.

Our aim is to improve communication links between arrhythmia nursing roles and assist in sharing good practice. We have worked hard to build a database of arrhythmia nurse contacts across the country and from this, formed an email group which serves as a link for other specialists to share practice, ask for advice and discuss pertinent issues around service and patient needs. This can be accessed here and please inform us should you wish to add your details.

We are aware access to education /conferences can be challenging with current financial constraints but aim to provide added support/advice to enhance attendance at relevant conferences to ensure your educational needs are met.




British Heart Rhythm Society (BHRS) membership provides up to date information, supports continuing professional development and allows networking opportunities for professionals involved in the provision of high quality arrhythmias care for patients in the UK.

Membership is open to consultants, nurses, physiologists and other allied professionals involved in providing arrhythmia care.
