Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust,

I would be grateful if you could supply me with details of the locations of publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs). For each unit, I would particularly like to know a location description / address, postcode, location coordinates (if known), reference number, and owner/operator.

I do NOT wish to know any access codes required to open the cabinets. I have a strong preference for receiving this information in a re-usable electronic format, e.g. a CSV file (preferred) or an Excel spreadsheet.

Yours faithfully,

Jay Russell

Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust,

Do you have an update on the status of this request please?

Good afternoon

The Freedom of Information Act provides public access to Information held by public bodies; our publication and our Trust website have therefore been designed to make available data including your request for defib locations.

By using the following link (https://wmas.nhs.uk/about-wmas/organisat...) you will be redirected to our disclosure log where West Midlands Ambulance Service publishes the answers to previous Freedom of Information requests we have received.

There is a FOI Index which you will need to open and search within the document by inputting key words such as ‘defibrillators’ or other search terms of the information you require and it will show you details of similar requests. On the left hand side of this, there will be the reference number you will require to refer to, to obtain a copy of the disclosure log.

We also have a further page on our website called “Frequently Asked FOI” where we actively publish and update information that is popularly requested from us. This page will continue to grow with a wealth of information and is currently available here;

https://wmas.nhs.uk/about-wmas/organisat...

If we can assist further please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dear Lynsey,

Please forgive me but I have searched both the FAQ and index for AED/Defib/Defibrillator and had a nil return.

Am I doing something wrong? Please can you direct me to the actual link for the data requested?

Yours sincerely,

Jay Russell

Dear Lynsey Kumari,

Sorry for the slight delay. Am I right in thinking that the previous request and information was from December and the data provided does not include the data we have requested?

We are looking to update our records with the most up to date information as possible hence my request.

Please let me know if I have misinterpreted this.

Yours sincerely,

Jay Russell

Good afternoon

Please note, we have revisited your request and can confirm we have provided the list of CPADs we are aware of to answer your request. These are the defibrillators that the public have access to which is what your request detailed by yourself.

We hope this concludes matters.

Kind Regards
