New Defibrillator for Tattenhall?

Home » News » New Defibrillator for Village?

At the July meeting of your PPG, two issues concerning defibrillators were discussed.

  • The need for a 'Community Public Access Defibrillator' (CPAD), located in the centre of the village and which is available 24 hours a day
  • The need for an accurate list of where the Tattenhall Defibrillators are located

Currently all defibrillators are located within buildings which are 'variously closed'. Because of this, it is considered that Tattenhall should have a CPAD in the centre of the village which is available 24 hours a day.

This would require a heated cabinet, and, assuming that planning permissions are obtained, would require a willing property owner to host the cabinet on an outside wall and (ideally) also provide the electricity supply.

In discussions with Thom Morton, Director at SPAR, he is completely supportive of this proposal.

Naturally it will be necessary to fulfil various criteria — i.e. contact with the North West Ambulance Service regarding the procurement/placement of any external cabinet. Realistically Tattenhall would want such a cabinet to meet their standards and for it to be registered on their system in order to obtain maximum public benefit as a CPAD.

For information, this is an Agenda Item on the next PC Meeting which will be held in September (there is no meeting in August).

And, in case you didn't know, here are the locations of the current Tattenhall Defibrillators:

  • Spar, High Street Tattenhall
  • St Alban's Church, Tattenhall
  • Barbour Institute, Tattenhall
  • The Studio, Worley Court, Bolesworth Road, Tattenhall
  • Tattenhall Recreation Club, Field Lane, Tattenhall
  • The Pheasant Inn, Higher Burwardsley
  • The Village Surgery, Ravensholme Lane, Tattenhall

The next Defibrillator Training Course run by Tattenhall First Responders is on 23 November — keep watching Tattenhall Online for updates ...
