GPs face six-monthly heart failure reviews as NICE greenlights 'unrealistic' guideline


which heart failure do they mean? one local CCG heart failure primary care team won't see patients with right sided heart failure problems, ie patients with copd as primary cause, as they say they don't count as proper heart failure. so can I exclude these patients too? or do they just mean patients with left sided heart failure or only if have both left and right sided heart failure? I may be being a bit pedantic here but if I am to justify my management according to NICE guidelines some clarification would be great on exactly whom I am meant to be seeing. cheers.
