The Ticker Club

The Ticker Club offers practical advice and moral support to all new patients, regardless of membership, both before and after surgery.

Patient Representation

The Ticker Club represents patients’ interests both within the Hospital itself and in the wider NHS, through the British Heart Foundation and by contact with other patient support groups.

Fundraising

All money raised is spent on facilities and equipment for the Hospital’s heart and vascular units.

The Ticker Club

We are a voluntary organisation founded by ex-patients who have undergone some form of cardiac or vascular procedure at Wythenshawe Hospital.

What we do

The Ticker Club is an association of ex-patients who have undergone some form of open-heart surgery or other cardiac procedures at Wythenshawe Hospital, part of the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) and home to one of the country’s leading cardiac centres.

The Club, founded in 1987, offers support throughout the North West to those who are themselves experiencing heart or vascular problems, and to their families.

Patient Support

We offer practical advice and moral support to new patients, both before and after surgery, through near-daily visits to all the cardiac wards and outpatient clinics by our trained patient support volunteers or, by special arrangement, privately in their own homes.

Patient Representation
