Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

I understand from http://www.scottishambulance.com/YourCom... that you encourage owners of publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to register their locations with you. I would be grateful if you could supply me with a copy of your resulting list.

For each AED, I would particularly like to know a location description / address, postcode, location coordinates (if held), reference number (if any), and owner/operator name. 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,

Robert Whittaker.

Hi there Robert,

You can access a list of our defibs here. Thanks, Ed

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

Many thanks for the the very quick response. It's great that the information is already available online at https://scottishamb-newsroom.prgloo.com/... . However the file offered on that page is a PDF file, which makes accessing the bulk data rather tricky. I don't suppose you could supply the same table of data in a re-usable format -- for instance the original spreadsheet file -- could you?

Yours sincerely,

Robert Whittaker

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

I am writing with reference to a recent FOI request I made to you concerning Public Access Defibrillator Locations. You can view details of the request and your response online at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p... .

You replied pointing me to a PDF file containing the information I was after. Unfortunately this file doesn't allow the information to be extracted automatically, so I sent a follow-up message on 27th August asking if I could have the original spreadsheet file. I don't seem to have had a response to this second message yet. So could I check that it was received and is being considered?

Yours faithfully,

Robert Whittaker

Hi Robert,
Sorry for not replying sooner. I don't have access to the spreadsheet. I will have to check with my colleague, who is off on holiday this week.
Regards,
Ed

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

Can I chase up my FOI request from 26th August again please? The full previous correspondence can be viewed on line at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p... .

Basically, I am after the original spreadsheet behind the PDF file at https://scottishamb-newsroom.prgloo.com/... as the PDF file is not structured in a way that makes it feasible for a computer to automatically extract the data.

Many thanks,

Robert Whittaker

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

Just to let you know that since an Excel Spreadsheet has now been added to https://scottishamb-newsroom.prgloo.com/... I am happy for you to close my request for this data in a computer-readable format.

(A full history of our correspondence can be found online at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p... )

Yours faithfully,

Robert Whittaker
