Heart Failure Support Service

The aim of the Heart Failure Support Service is to support patients and carers with the social impact of heart failure who are living in the community.

The Heart Failure Support Coordinators, assisted by volunteers, offer companionship, information and support to enable patients to be socially active. The service is presently only accessible to individuals in Lothian, Lanarkshire, Greater Glasgow & Clyde and the Western Isles and is linked with local cardiac support groups, NHS services and other local voluntary agencies.
