Nice | Acute heart failure

This is a new guideline from NICE on Acute Heart Failure. This is really aimed at secondary care and does not add anything to what we would routinely do in general practice.

One thing to remember is the possibility of using BNP testing if you are not certain if someone may be presenting with new onset acute heart failure. Do remember the other causes of a raised BNP though.

"I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care."
