From 11.00-13.00 on 22nd March, The British Society for Heart Failure (BSH) and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) are hosting a virtual Parliamentary Drop in event at which MPs are invited to drop-in to talk about the indirect and direct effects of CoViD-19 on those with heart failure in their constituencies. People with heart failure will also be present to talk about their patient journey.
This is an opportunity for BSH to raise pertinent issues in heart failure care.
Would you be willing to send your local MP an invitation to drop-in?

As a result of the dramatic resurgence of CoViD-19, cardiologists with transferrable skills are being redeployed to the frontline, increasingly leaving the responsibility for care of those with heart failure to their heart failure nursing colleagues.
“In the current situation, it is crucial to protect the most vulnerable members of our society particularly those with long term conditions such as heart failure (HF). So, the British Society for Heart Failure Nurse Forum (BSHNF) is today launching the Heart Failure Specialist Nurse (HFSN) competency framework to support HF nurses and as a step towards securing competency in heart failure care and consistency of care across the UK”, commented Carys Barton, Chair of the BSHNF
