Heart Failure

Heart failure does not mean that your heart has stopped or is going to stop at any minute. It means that your heart is not functioning as well as it should. Heart failure can be caused by many different conditions. Symptoms include fluid retention, breathlessness and tiredness. Medication can usually ease symptoms and can often improve the outlook.

It is recommended that patients take a beta-blocker. If you are not already on this medication you will be contacted in order to make an appointment with one of our Clinical Pharmacists.

As part of your HF monitoring you will be contacted by SMS or letter to book a functional medication review with one of our Clinical Pharmacists.

Patients with HF are eligible to receive a flu vaccination annually during Influenza Vaccination Season. We will contact you when we start to accept bookings for this.
