Seven new life saving defibrillators installed

We know well the vital role resuscitation equipment can play for people of all ages and fitness levels, which is why we’re pleased to announce the installation of seven new life-saving defibrillators – taking our total number on-site to eight. 

As one of only a handful of venues in the South West to have such a large number of defibrillators in one place, all those who come to the Abbey will feel safe in the knowledge they can quickly and effectively access a defibrillator, should an emergency occur.  

Excellent training has been provided on the new G5 defibrillators by the South Western Ambulance Service Foundation Trust (SWASFT), enabling the Abbey to give the best CPR and care possible.
