Nationwide model project
This interdisciplinary outpatient heart failure clinic is nationwide unique. Due to the possibility of working in such an interdisciplinary team together with the university clinic Wuerzburg our patients benefit from modern diagnostic strategies and a tailored therapy. This fulfils our requirement to also advice patients with more severe or complex forms of heart failure.
Who is eligible for treatment?
The interdisciplinary outpatient heart failure clinic is open for all patients in the region. Especially in cases with severe disease it can be beneficial to make use of the expertise in our outpatient heart failure clinic in addition to the regular visits within the cardiology practice.
No emergency department!
Please note, we are no emergency department. In case of severe health conditions, e.g. breathlessness or chest pain, please call the medical service (Phone: 116 117), the rescue directing centre (phone 112) or please visit the next emergency department.
