Locations of all known AED units available to the public

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NHS England should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS England,

Please could you supply the locations of all AED (Automated External Defibrillator) units in the UK? Grid reference would be preferable to postcode in terms of providing the most accurate information in an emergency situation but postcodes would suffice if this is not possible.

Please could you supply the data in CSV or Excel format?

Yours faithfully, David Round

Dear Mr Round,

 

Re:      Freedom of Information request (Our Ref: FOI-054610)

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 12 October
2017

 

Your exact request was:-

 

“Please could you supply the locations of all AED (Automated External
Defibrillator) units in the UK? Grid reference would be preferable to
postcode in terms of providing the most accurate information in an
emergency situation but postcodes would suffice if this is not possible.”

 

NHS England does not hold this information.

 

It may help if we explain that the NHS is not a single organisation but is
made up of a range of organisations such as Hospitals, Clinical
Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Ambulance Trusts. NHS England is
responsible for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental
surgeries, as well as some specialised secondary care services. Therefore,
any recorded information NHS England may be able to provide in response to
an FOI request will generally relate to the services NHS England
commissions. For information on commissioned services and the types of
information NHS England holds can be found on our [1]website and
[2]publication scheme. For further information on the NHS, its structure
and other NHS organisations please refer to NHS Choices [3]here.

 

The Department of Health (DH) may hold some information relating to your
request. We have included their contact information below for your
