Shock Tactics

Pitshanger Lane Defibrillator John Martin Estates have celebrated their 20th birthday in the Lane in a very public spirited way by buying and installing a defibrillator unit outside the office at the junction of Pitshanger Lane and Selby Road.  Defibrillators in public places are relatively common in some other European countries, but not here (yet), and we salute this trailblazing endeavour by John and his colleagues.

The defibrillator unit was commissioned by Tim Chivers of the London Ambulance Service on 25th October and the first group of 18 traders and residents has already been trained in its use.  There will be further training sessions – if interested pop into the office where John or Rhian will be happy to give you further details.
