Donating Defibrillators: The kit that starts hearts PUMPING again

We are excited to share that, as part of our 30th anniversary and corporate partnership with the London Irish Foundation, we have donated public access defibrillators (PADs) to the South-Central Ambulance Service (SCAS). Our goal is to assist the NHS in providing crucial medical support in public areas.

It came to our attention that out of 2059 incidents involving CPR between April 2022 and January 2023, only 46 public access defibrillators were deployed to assist patients. This highlights the importance of having more defibrillators in public places, and we are eager to help make this happen.

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of premature death, and timely intervention can make all the difference. When someone experiences cardiac arrest, their heart’s rhythm becomes disorganized, making defibrillation necessary. The sooner defibrillation occurs, the greater the chance of saving a person’s life.

We believe that immediate action by members of the public can save lives, which is why we are thrilled to announce the installation of the first five defibrillators in key locations across South London.

These include:

  1. Hazelwood – An impressive Sports facility and the home of London Irish RFU in Sunbury-on-Thames.
  2. Chiswick Park Business Centre – Chiswick Park is home to some of the world’s leading Global, European and National companies.
  3. Waterman’s Art Centre – a combined arts centre. It is located in Brentford, alongside the banks of the River Thames overlooking Kew Gardens in West London.
  4. Kew Green Cricket Club – Is a Historic Cricket Club. Founded in 1853 it has been at the heart of the local community for over a century and a half.
  5. London Museum of Water and Steam – An independent museum founded in 1975 as the Kew Bridge Steam Museum.
Public access defibrillators (PADs) can be used safely and successfully by people with no specific training, but, as part of the project, the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust will be organising and running comprehensive training events to ensure that as many people as possible understand how to work this equipment and are available to step in if an emergency should ever arise.
Jonathan Barker, Managing Director of Pump Technology Ltd said, “As a company we have always been active in the community, and as we celebrate our 30-year anniversary, we wanted to extend our values and support the SCAS”
