CCDT Public access defibrillator project


The trust is looking for members of the community to help with our public access defibrillator project.  We have some funding available to start the project and need to form a group to make decisions on where it could go and how we engage with the community so that people know it is there and how it should be used.


Please get in touch with us if you have an opinion on this or would like to know more about the project.
