Tick_stroke RCUK welcomes analysis of public access defibrillators across England

RCUK is calling for a more evidence-based and coordinated approach to the placement of public access defibrillators (PADs) across the UK, and for their registration onto The Circuit, following analysis of current provision in England completed by the University of Warwick. The analysis found that public access defibrillators are disproportionately lacking in the most deprived areas of England, which are among the communities at the greatest risk of cardiac arrest.
