Keep Ticking Falkirk promotes the welfare of patients with heart disease

 

Keep Ticking Falkirk works towards the continued rehabilitation of heart patients by offering regular controlled exercise sessions under the supervision of health experts from Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

The group meets twice a week at Forth Valley College and Braes High School.

Secretary John Fletcher said: “The object of Keep Ticking Falkirk is to advance the education, relieve suffering and promote the welfare of patients with heart disease, their carers and other relevant parties living in the area.

“The club encourages the members to take regular controlled exercise sessions under the supervision of the cardiac rehabilitation team from Forth Valley Royal Hospital. To this end the members are requested to exercise self-discipline while carrying out these exercises and not cause discomfit to others.

“The club has approximately 60 members. At both venues the gymnasium and exercise rooms are utilised as well as the swimming pool at Braes High.”
