The heart failure team helps people with a type of heart failure known as Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction /left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) to have the best quality of life; by  helping people understand their condition,  addressing symptoms, ensuring optimisation of medication and advising on beneficial lifestyle changes as well as support individuals at the end of their life.

The service is delivered by a specialist nursing team.

Clinics are held at various locations throughout Medway but home visits are also available to patients who are unable to attend clinic venues.

The heart failure service also co-ordinates a heart failure diagnostic service for GPs.
