There are over 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests across the country every year. I was personally shocked that the survival rate is so low - just 1 in 10 people survive.
If someone you love has a cardiac arrest, early CPR and defibrillation can almost double their chance of survival. But thousands of defibrillators are currently collecting dust when they could be saving lives.
It's currently estimated that only 30,000 defibrillators are known to the ambulance services, there are at least 100,000 in total across the country.
That's why I'm proud to be supporting the British Heart Foundation in their campaign to find the additional 70,000 defibrillators so that we can improve survival rates.
They've launched the National Defibrillator Network, which maps out the location of defibrillators across the country so ambulance services can direct people to them in an emergency.
