Providing a community defibrillator

Residents at Mill Hill Close and Barnard Gate, Haywards Heath gained a local authority grant to install a defibrillator on their estate. The equipment gives a high-energy shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. In an emergency situation the defibrillator can be accessed by the emergency services, and also by anybody living on the estate or in the wider community.
