Cropredy's AED story
Following Cropredy Primary School’s I.M.P.S. visit, local GP Dr Barry Tucker was inspired to work with Cropredy Parish Council to install a public access Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on the outside wall of the GP surgery.
Their teacher Caroline Tucker said ‘Cropredy School really value and support the work of I.M.P.S. Each year our Year 6 pupils learn such vital first aid and lifesaving skills, enabling them to become confident young members of the community who can cope with emergency situations. Year 6 pupils are delighted to see the arrival of the public access AED in their community.’
Lynn Pilgrim, Oxfordshire I.M.P.S. Manager said, ‘I.M.P.S. is delighted to have played a part in inspiring the community of Cropredy to install a public access AED. Prompt use of an AED following sudden cardiac arrest can increase the chances of survival by 75%. ‘
