WE FOCUS ON HEART FAILURE
We, the British Society for Heart Failure (BSH) lead the way in educating doctors, nurses and allied specialists working in hospitals and the community so we can all improve care for patients with heart failure.
We are proud to have a representation of over 1500 professional individuals from across the clinical community on our membership. It is our aim to equip healthcare professionals, including those most closely involved in caring for people with heart failure with up to date specialist education and research.
The advice and guidance of a specialist is essential for planning care and for specialist intervention. All patients with chronic conditions should have access to a multi disciplinary team. Those patients who need the expertise of a heart failure specialist should have access to one. It is our intention as BSH to continue to grow the network of HF specialist throughout the country so no patient in need goes without the care they require.
Together, we can make heart failure a national priority through our work, research and education, with the aim of preserving life, increase survival and improve quality of life for the nearly 1 million living with heart failure in the UK today.
