Community Heart Failure Referrals

What we do

Our team of specialist heart failure nurses supports people with heart failure and their families and carers to manage their cardiac condition and medications to improve their quality of life, and reduce unnecessary admissions to hospital.

We provide regular reviews, advice and information at community heart failure clinics and at home.
