Community-use Defibrillator

You may have noticed the installation of our new community-use automated external defibrillator on the CCTV pole in the car park. Additional signage is on the way to make it more obvious but it is registered with South Western Ambulance Service Trust’s (SWAST) 999 service, for immediate emergency use by the public and will be in place for a minimum of 4 years. We would like to thank Governors for supporting this initiative.

In partnership with SWAST, we will be hosting a free 90 minute community training event in the near future for anyone to learn how to use one of these defibrillators. Watch this space for a date.


For more information on how to use a defibrillator, please see the British Heart Foundation website.
