The components of an excellent anticoagulation service for patients with AF have been described in 'Excellence in anticoagulant care', developed by NHS London Clinical Networks.1 A checklist for delivering excellence is also available.2

Importantly, excellent anticoagulation services should be patient-centred and directly involve users and carers. All treatment decisions should be made in partnership with patients following a comprehensive education and decision-support consultation, with an ongoing package of patient monitoring, review, education and support.1 As time constraints in general practice often make this a challenge, the following patient leaflet is available to support you in helping your patients to understand more about their condition, treatment options and beyond.
