TypeAdult Services - Specialist Nursing - Heart Failure Nurse
The Community Heart Failure Team supports and helps people with heart failure to manage their condition at home. As a team we provide a specialised service to patients who may not otherwise receive the specialist care that they need to self-manage their condition and avoid hospital admission.
We also work alongside the heart failure teams of Kettering and Northampton General Hospitals to optimise the management of people with chronic heart failure and provide seamless care between hospital and general practice. Our approach is to actively encourage and support self-management, to identify and develop support mechanisms for both patients and their carers, assisting in improving their quality of life. We also aim to improve the end of life experience for patients and their carers, working closely with the palliative care service, district nurse service and GPs.
Who is this service for? Adults with heart failure to help them manage their disorder.
How to access this service: For help and advice please visit your healthcare professional or GP and request a referral. Please note you may only refer yourself if you have received our service before.
