Heart Failure Service

The community heart failure service provides specialist nursing support for patients with a confirmed diagnosis of heart failure by echocardiogram.

We visit patients in their own homes and work towards reducing hospital admissions. We provide the patient with written and verbal information around the management of heart failure, which includes education around self-management and recognising early signs or symptoms of heart failure or when to seek additional support or advice.

We work with the GP and other community services in the management of patients with heart failure to promote a good quality of life and avoid hospital admissions.
