'Thank You' to All - Community Public Access Defibrillator

Home » News » 'Thank You' for Defibrillator

What a difference team effort can make!

Your Patient Participation Group was approached, requesting that Tattenhall consider installing a Community Public Access Defibrillator (CPAD).

Currently, all defibrillators in Tattenhall are located within buildings which are variously closed.

Our patient footprint is over 8000 patients in the combined Village Surgeries Group and it was felt that Tattenhall was at variance with other villages which offered CPAD provision 24 hours a day.

Unanimous support was given to this proposal at the last meeting of the Tattenhall and District Parish Council and it was agreed that:

  • The defibrillator currently located within SPAR will, in the future, be sited outside the store
  • That Thom Morton fully supports this proposal and that Thom will pay the necessary electricity costs involved in heating the cabinet in which the defibrillator will be housed (a requirement)
  • That the Parish Council will pay for a cabinet to house the CPAD, together with all installation costs and that the Parish Council will also fund the provision of an emergency phone (a requirement so that the code can be gained to access the cabinet)
  • That Tattenhall First Responders will continue to monitor the defibrillators and pay (through their fundraising efforts) for necessary replacement batteries and/or pads.

This is a superb outcome and the PPG thanks everyone for their support and generosity.
