BSH Heart Failure Nurse Forum


Scottish Heart Failure Nurse Forum

SHFNF currently invites both full members (working >50% clinical time with heart failure management) and affiliated members (those with an interest in heart failure care). Each area within Scotland is represented, ensuring robust representation and we also benefit from third sector collaboration in our work planning. Our committee (current chair Jill Nicholls: jill.nicholls@nhs.net) organises educational meetings, networking and encourages shared learning and experiences. Details of events can be found on our website.

The SHFNF has a responsibility to showcase national service provision and has published two reports titled 'Review of Specialist Heart Failure Nurse Services'. The SHFNF also holds membership of the Heart Disease & Stroke Cross Party Group (at the Scottish Parliament) and the Scottish Government’s National Advisory Committee for Heart Disease (NACHD).
