The Heart Failure Nurse Service aims to enhance the care of patients with a diagnosis of heart failure, improving quality of life and ultimately preventing avoidable admissions to hospital. This is achieved by focusing on improving patient self-management, through education and support.

The service provides both on-going clinical management of the condition by nurse prescribing, self-management advice and actively encourages the involvement of the family and carers.
