SYMPACT has completed data collection and is in the process of reporting and sharing our results.

SYMPACT is grateful to all those with heart failure who participated and the teams at Queen Alexandra Hospital, and the University Hospital of Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Solent, and in the community.
