What is your experience of returning home after being in hospital with heart failure?  

We want to learn from people who: 

  • have a diagnosis of heart failure 
  • are a carer or family member of someone with heart failure 
  • are a healthcare worker in this field 

 We want to collaborate with you to improve home-based healthcare. Our conversations will help shape the Heart Helper pilot

Why it matters 

Did you know that one in four patients sent home after a heart failure hospital admission need to return to hospital within thirty days? Many of these readmissions can be prevented by implementing initiatives to improve care quality, communication across care settings and support offered to patients and carers. 

How can you participate? 

There are a few ways you can take part as a person with lived experience of heart failure, their carer or family member, or as a healthcare worker: 

  • 30-minute conversation about your experience 
  • 60–90-minute conversation about your experience, particularly going home after hospital  
  • Join an 'ideas' workshop (group session) 
  • Join a 'feedback' session (group session) 
  • Receive updates about the project via email 

Register your interest 

We will be running different activities over March, April, May and June.
