Patient Pathways

The following care pathways were developed by the UK Department of Health in partnership with the Arrhythmia Alliance, The Heart Rhythm Charity (UK). These pathways look at different entry points of care for patients suffering from blackouts/T-LoCs and where the RATC would fit into each care pathway.

There is also a specific patient pathway for children. This is because syncopal attacks, such as Reflex Anoxic Seizures, most commonly occur in young children.

Where patients have already been diagnosed with an arrhythmia, the ‘Arrhythmia Care Coordinator’ pathway provides guidance on patient care beyond the RATC.
