The information requested is not held centrally. The purchase of a defibrillator is a matter for individual school and college leaders.
Swift access to a defibrillator is very important in cases of cardiac arrest, and so the government is encouraging schools and other eligible settings to purchase defibrillators as part of their first-aid equipment.
To make it as easy as possible for schools and other eligible settings to do so, the department has negotiated a deal, with NHS Supply Chain, to offer defibrillators at a reduced cost. Since the scheme was launched in November 2014, 2763 defibrillators have been purchased through this route.
