The First HeartSafe® Golf Club in the UK

The First HeartSafe® Golf Club in the UK

Author: HeartSafe/Sunday, August 1, 2010/Categories: Communities, Golf Clubs, New Cabinet Installations

Farrington Golf & Country Club in Farrington Gurney, Somerset has become the first Golf Club in the UK to have a Public Access Defibrillator.  This means that anyone visiting Farrington Golf & Country Club, whether it be to play golf, use the Health & Fitness Centre or visit the Clubhouse for a drink, meal or any other social event, at any time of the day or evening, will have the peace of mind that a defibrillator is immediately available should anyone suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  

The scheme is part of the growing number of HeartSafe® cabinets that are being located in public places and communities, and is supported by the Great Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust.  The defibrillator and HeartSafe® cabinet were funded by the members and staff of Farrington Golf & Country Club, who recognised the importance of this simple life-saving device and the benefits it would bring to those who use the Club's facilities.
