Damien Moore, Member of Parliament for Southport constituency, said:
“Working with local community representatives and the Department of Health and Social Care, the Conservative Government have announced an additional £1,000,000 funding package for additional 1,000 community-based Automated External Defibrillators (AED)'s across Southport and the wider UK.
“With the proven deployment of community-based AED's increasing pulmonary event survivability by 40%, it's essential for the Government and the Department of Health and Social Care to invest in our local healthcare service and equipment provision.
“I will continue to work closely with local healthcare professionals and AED activists to support community sponsored AED applications, while continuing to advocate for improved paediatric A&E services, ensuring Southport remains a centre of healthcare excellence.”
