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.
How can I be referred to this service?
Referrals can be made by your GP, hospital doctors or any other health care professionals. They can do this by letter, telephone or fax.
The service is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
