Life-saving defibrillator for West Lothian

A potentially life-saving emergency device in the West Lothian village of Torphichen has been made available to the public 24/7 for use in an emergency.

The defibrillator was one of the first to be donated to a local community by St John Scotland, and was previously held at the Post Office, meaning it was only accessible during business hours. 

Now our West Lothian Area, working alongside Torphichen Community Council and with help from West Lothian Council, the Community Heartbeat Trust and others, have successfully moved the defibrillator to an old phone box at the heart of the village. It can now be used by any member of the public 24/7, which could prove vital in the event of cardiac arrest.

The defibrillator was officially unveiled on Sunday by local Area chair Keith Stirling, alongside the Prior of St John Scotland, Major General Mark Strudwick.
