Life Saving Equipment Now Available For The Community

Walnut Medical, a local medical information company have kindly donated an Automatic External Defibrillator (A.E.D) to the Melbourn Community Hub Management Group.

Also known as a Cardiac Defibrillator, this life saving piece of equipment will be situated in the Melbourn Community Hub for use in the Parish of Melbourn.

It is medically proven that the use of an A.E.D within 3 to 5 minutes of Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) being commenced on an unconscious, non-breathing individual can increase survival rate by 74% as opposed to CPR alone.

This photo shows Rebecca Dawson, Administration & Marketing Manager of Walnut Medical presenting the A.E.D to Siegmar Parton, Centre Co-Ordinator of the Melbourn Community Hub.

Also in the photo are  Bob Tulloch, Melbourn Parish Council Chairman and Director of Walnut Medical, Kimmi Crosby,  Melbourn Community Hub Management Group Director and Walnut Medical Director and Stuart Cook, Chairman of the Melbourn Community Hub Management Group.

The A.E.D was purchased from The Hearn Training Company who will providing training shortly.
