Improving the pathway of the heart failure patient

A CLAHRC funded project to improve the care of heart failure patients admitted to Chelsea and Westminster has now been running successfully for 10 months.The first group of patients in the project completed the hospital based exercise class recently.

The group are now participating in the community group exercise arm of the project and a number of volunteers with Age Concern Kensington and Chelsea (incorporating Sixty Plus) have been trained to support the home based exercise programme using a home based exercise programme designed by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Outcome data on improvements in functional capacity and quality of life will be presented to NIHR CLAHRC, it is hoped to extend the programme into the north of the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
