We treat patients with a diagnosis of Angina and on medical treatment. Offering "The Angina Plan", a 12-week self management plan that includes support and encouragement from the service. Exercises can be done at home or at the cardiac rehabilitation class which the service runs.

We provide long-term medical management and support to patients with heart failure, from diagnosis through to end-stage of the disease.

The service ensures that patients with heart failure are taking appropriate medication to control any heart failure symptoms, and that they have the most appropriate treatment for their heart failure.

We offer:

  • Clinic and home visits – to assess and educate, and optimise medication.
  • Inpatient hospital visits – to assess prior to discharge.
  • SOS response – patients can contact the service and arrange a visit for an assessment to to help prevent the need to attend hospital

  • Clinical assessment, including blood pressure and pulse oxygen saturation.
