Village Defibrillator – New Location

As part of the new facilities being built in Thakeham, the defibrillator has been moved to the new village hall. It is located on the front of the building, to the right of the front door.

The map below shows the new location (green pin) compared to the old location (red pin).

The British Heart Foundation is in the process of creating the National Defibrillator Network (NDN) to link defibrillators to local Ambulance services. The NDN will mean ambulance services can easily and quickly direct people to their nearest defibrillator so that more lives can be saved through bystander defibrillation.The Thakeham defibrillator will be added to the network when it launches in early 2019.
