With around a million people in the UK living with heart failure and cases set to rise, tackling the condition through multi-disciplinary teams is an urgent priority across the country.

Community pharmacists play a crucial role in this fight against heart failure, coming into contact with both those currently being treated for heart failure as well as potential cases on a daily basis.

In collaboration with its clinical members, the Alliance for Heart Failure has produced this series of three articles aimed at educating and empowering community pharmacists when it comes to diagnosing, treating and managing heart failure.

Part 1: Recognising the symptoms of heart failure

Part 2: How heart failure is diagnosed

Part 3: Treating and managing heart failure as part of a multi-disciplinary team
