The Defibrillator Group

Ensuring NHS, Community funded and privately purchased defibrillators are supplied, installed, maintained and protected to the highest standards.

Educate

To give every person the opportunity to learn lifesaving skills, that could make a real difference in a life or death situation.

Protect

Ensure every community, High Street, school, public building and business has access to a life saving defibrillator.

The Defibrillator Group are a family-run not-for-profit organisation.

A family member suffered cardiac arrest a number of years ago and we were inspired to protect as many lives as possible against the threat of cardiac arrest.

Community defibrillators need to be looked after correctly. Monthly safety checks must be carried out by an appointed guardian and submitted to your local ambulance service. Batteries and pads need to be changed when they expire, and the defibrillator needs to be protected against theft or vandalism.

The Defibrillator Group provides a one stop shop so fundraising groups, charities and private businesses will have the peace of mind knowing that their equipment is professionally installed, maintained and, in the rare event it is stolen or damaged, it will be replaced.

We fundraise constantly so we can offer many of our services free of charge to charities and community groups.

Why Have Defibrillators?

When a cardiac arrest happens, you have just four minutes to get the heart back into a regular rhythm or it is highly likely the patient will die.

The best way to get the heart working properly again is with CPR and a defibrillator, while waiting for the emergency services to attend the scene.

A defibrillator – also known as an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is simple to use and, if required, it will deliver an electric shock, or defibrillation, to the heart.

For every minute it takes for the defibrillator to reach someone and deliver a shock, their chances of survival reduce by around 10%
.
Nationally, the average ambulance response time is 8-11 minutes so it is vital that the patient receives care immediately.

Increased Survival Rates

Over 30,000 people suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year and without defibrillation the survival rates are only 5%. With a defibrillator close by those rates rise to 75%.
