Caring for patients with heart failure

Did you know, St Barnabas House now provides an Advanced Heart Failure Service for patients who have been diagnosed with Advanced Heart Failure?

Such has been the impact of the service since it was first introduced by the hospice in 2016 that Michaela Wheatley, the Advanced Heart Failure Nurse Specialist, was recently nominated for a British Heart Foundation ‘Heart Hero’ award.
