Specialist nurse – heart failure management
"I lead a small team of specialist nurses in heart failure management. We advise on inpatient management of heart failure throughout the Trust and follow up patients in an assessment unit post-discharge.
The aims are to try and improve patient outcomes for heart failure. To improve quality of life for this group of patients and engage patients in managing their symptoms in conjunction with the team.
Recent feedback from patients shows that this is a well valued service by patients and their carers and that they do feel that it positively impacts on their quality of life."
