About this clinic

People are referred to the Heart Function Clinic because they've been diagnosed with heart failure. The clinic aims to help you live well with this condition.

Heart failure is when the heart does not pump as well as it should. It can’t keep up with the demands of your body to supply oxygen and nutrients. It’s caused by many things, but most commonly caused by high blood pressure or a heart attack.

If you are referred to the Heart Function Clinic, we work with you for about one year. During this time, we will:

  • See you in the Clinic 3-7 times, depending on how stable you are
  • Your visits may be in person, or by phone
  • Do various heart tests
  • Make sure you are on the right medications for you
  • Teach you how to manage your heart failure better at home
  • Work with your family doctor on your condition
  • Continue to check on you until things are working well for you
