A quarter of a million people suffer from heart failure in Sweden every year, but while treatment methods are improving, too few patients are accessing them.

Karolinska University Hospital professor and chief physician Lars Lund told Swedish Radio that poor organisation is slowing down the progress of improved heart failure treatment in Swedish healthcare.

If organisation is not improved, the cost may have to increase, he warned.
