SNP MSP WELCOMES PUBLIC DEFIB MAP

BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION, MICROSOFT AND NHS JOINING FORCES TO SAVE LIVES

Efforts from the British Heart Foundation, Microsoft and NHS Scotland to create a new public map of defibrillators across the country will be vital in saving lives, an SNP MSP has said – after plans for the public map were announced.

SNP MSP Stuart McMillan led a members’ business debate earlier this year exploring the possibilities of better mapping of defibrillators across Scotland – backing the Jayden Orr campaign in his Inverclyde constituency – and he has welcomed the news that these proposals are being taken forward.

Commenting, Stuart McMillan said:

“I welcome this development and initiative and I am pleased that Scotland will be included in the initial trial phase.

“It’s always hugely impressive when an organisation such as Microsoft gets involved in a public health matter and in this instance I anticipate positive results.

“I am keen to understand the exact details of this initiative and how Scotland will benefit. The Inverclyde community in my constituency is fully behind the local Jayden Orr campaign and I’m sure everyone involved will welcome this development.

“This proposal has the possibility to help save more lives which we can all welcome.  I look forward to the delivery of a concerted public information campaign to raise more awareness of the importance of Public Access Defibrillators and their accessibility.”
