Although it is best practice for sites to have a defibrillator, some sites may not have the financial resources or personnel trained to use them on their sites.
The London Ambulance Service have a Defibrillator Accreditation Scheme to make defibrillators more accessible to members of the public in case of an emergency.
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.
The Defibrillator Accreditation Scheme offers 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.
