Heart Failure Community Nursing Service (Oxfordshire)

What we do

The Community Heart Failure Nursing service cares for and empowers patients to manage their heart failure and assists them in improving their health and wellbeing.

It is a valuable resource in primary care, providing a consistent and systematic approach to the treatment of heart failure sufferers.

The Heart Failure Nurse Specialists achieve this by working closely with GPs as well as with hospital consultants to monitor the symptoms of heart failure and manage medication.

Emphasis is placed on the education and support of the patient and their carer or family.

What is heart failure?

Heart failure is a progressive, disabling condition which affects 1-2% of the population. It can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life, psychologically as well as physically.


Referrals can be made by your GP, hospital doctor, or any other health care professional; this can be done by either email or telephone.
