Supermarket chain Asda will receive a life-saving defibrillator for the public to use in its Southgate branch.

Asda, working with the British Heart Foundation, is rolling out defibrillators to give its customers the best chance of survival in the case of a cardiac arrest.

Staff at the Southgate Circus, Chase Side, store will also be trained in how to use the equipment and perform CPR.

Kate Main, from Asda’s community team, said: “It can take a number of minutes for an ambulance to reach one of our stores in response to an emergency like a cardiac arrest.

“Providing defibrillators could significantly cut the amount of time a cardiac arrest sufferer has to wait for CPR and defibrillation, giving them the best possible chance.”
