Exclusive offer to help make your communities safer


Author: Clive Rowlandson, marketing manager at the British Heart Foundation

There are 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) every year in the UK; sadly, the current survival rate is only 1 in 10. However, early CPR and defibrillation can significantly increase the chances of surviving an OHCA. British Heart Foundation therefore has a mission to triple survival rates from Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests by 2030.

We are running two main campaigns to achieve this:

  1. To get more defibrillators installed and registered across the UK.
  2. To train more people in lifesaving CPR.


To help with the first of these, we have a special offer available exclusively for local councils and non-profits for a limited time only. The package includes:

  • Mediana Heart On A15 Defibrillator
  • 1 set of pre-connected adult/child electrode pads
  • Defibsafe2 Lockable External Cabinet
  • Soft carry case 

Prices from only £1,067 + VAT (a saving of over £300 vs buying the items separately)

To qualify for the offer, councils must:

  • Commit to keeping the defib accessible 24 hours/day in the cabinet provided.
  • Provide a suitable location with electrical supply confirmation.
  • Have no other accessible defib within 200m of the location.
  • Agree to register on The Circuit within 4 weeks and promote BHF’s free lifesaving RevivR CPR training tool in the local community (see below for details)

The offer is available from 1 March to 31 May 2024.

To register your interest, call 0300 330 3322 (Monday – Friday, 9-5) or contact us at

It couldn’t be easier to buy from BHF. We have a team of defibrillator experts available to help you each step of the way.

BHF also has free buyers’ guides on our website, written in simple language to help answer all your questions, from fitting and storage to maintenance.

This gives you the peace of mind you’re getting impartial advice you can trust, and all profits help fund lifesaving research.

Register your defib on the circuit

If you buy a new defibrillator or already have one, please ensure it’s registered on The Circuit.

Registering a defibrillator takes less than 5 minutes, and there’s no cost.

The moment someone has a cardiac arrest, the clock starts ticking. Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 10%. However, many defibrillators are never used because emergency services don’t know where or how to access them.

This is where The Circuit comes in.

The Circuit – the national defibrillator network, provides ambulance services with vital information on the location of defibrillators across the UK. This means that in those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest, they can be accessed quickly to help save lives.

That’s why we urgently need you to register your defibrillator today.

Check if your defibrillator is already registered.

CPR training 

If someone has a cardiac arrest, Defibrillation alone is not enough, the final piece of the jigsaw is CPR training. 80 per cent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK happen at home, so you’re most likely to be called upon to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a loved one.

Despite that, more than 20 million adults in the UK still don’t know how to do CPR.

So BHF has created RevivR, a free online tool that will teach you how to perform CPR in just 15 minutes. All you need is a mobile phone and a cushion.
