We are running a campaign to get 1,000 extra defibrillators
in shops, businesses and gyms across the capital because it’s
shockingly easy to save a life in London.
Around 32 per cent of people survive a
cardiac arrest in a public place but, where there is a
defibrillator and someone trained to use it, the chance of
survival can increase to 80 per cent.
Our Chairman Richard Hunt says: “Don’t leave
it too late to do the right thing.
"Every shop, gym, hotel and office in London
should have a defibrillator so they’re ready to save a London life.
And they cost very little – it really is just the paper clip
We offer guidance and support in buying, storing and using
a defibrillator, which are safe and easy to use
and really make a difference between life and death.
