Our teams and the services we offer

If you live in Greenwich or are registered with a Greenwich GP, it is likely you will be seen by our Heart Failure Team.

If you live in Bexley, our Virtual Ward will help you to manage your heart failure in your own home. 

Our Greenwich Heart Failure Team work with people with cardiac conditions, such as heart failure, in their own homes to help them and their family and/or carer to better manage their condition. The team's goal is to support people to better manage their condition in their own home and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and A&E attendances. 

The team consists of:

  • a consultant cardiologist
  • a lead nurse
  • four specialist nurses
  • a dietitian
  • an administrator
  • input from a psychologist. 

The Bexley Virtual Ward is not a real ward, but a team of specialist nurses who are trained to carry out full medical examinations and can prescribe medicine and treatment, who care for people in their own homes.
