Cardiology

Heart Failure Nurse Service

Patients are seen in the emergency assessment unit, or while staying on a cardiology or medical ward, with the aim of providing a service that will direct patients onto the correct clinical pathway, promote effective, evidenced based treatment and reduce the overall hospital stay. On discharge from hospital, the Heart Failure Nurses may see a patient in an outpatient clinic, or refer to the most appropriate primary care team, for symptom management.

Patients who are diagnosed with Heart Failure can be referred to the Heart Failure Specialists Nurses for advice, support, education and monitoring.
