Defibrillators and where to find them

March 03 2018

THE FRONT page story in last month's Hanham and Longwell Green Voice about a man whose life was saved by a defibrillator prompted a letter from one of our readers.

THE FRONT page story in last month's Hanham and Longwell Green Voice about a man whose life was saved by a defibrillator prompted a letter from one of our readers.

The gentleman asked if we could publish a list of the locations of local defibrillators so one could be easily located in an emergency.

With the help of South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, we have compiled a useful list for our readers. Some of the devices are not available 24/7 and where this is the case, for example at Longwell Green Leisure Centre, the hours are noted.

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust said: "The more people equipped with the knowledge and confidence to administer CPR and the more defibrillators there are available, the more people we can save. "We encourage all businesses and workplaces to have defibrillators and CPR-trained people available to respond in an emergency situation."

SWASFT recommends that all defibrillators are registered with South Western Ambulance Service via their responders team via this website link: https://www.swast.nhs.uk/What%20We%20Do/register-your-defibrillator-with-swasft.htm 

This then links to 999 control rooms and computer aided dispatch system (CAD) which indicates the nearest working defibrillator.
