The FA is launching Phase 3 of
its national initiative “Heart Safe Clubs” to provide life-saving
defibrillators to all grassroots football clubs in England from 1st
The scheme was first launched in
2017 and Phases 1 & 2 have proved so successful that the FA is now
launching Phase 3 with WEL Medical, its strategic supply partner. WEL
Medical specializes in life-saving devices and is supplying the FA with the
iPAD SP1 defibrillator, a nominated device of the British Heart Foundation.
Clubs can now purchase
life-saving iPAD SP1 defibrillators for the special price of £695+VAT (usual
cost £1325+VAT). The IPAD SP1 is a nominated unit of the British Heart
Foundation and is deployed by the NHS Ambulance service. The iPAD SP1 defibrillator
is portable, it weighs just 2.4kg (including the battery pack and pads) and
comes in a robust, high visibility carry case.
Phase 3 launches on 1st
July 2019 and all grassroots clubs in England can apply for a defibrillator via
the dedicated website: www.footballdefibs.org. WEL Medical will
require the club name, affiliation number, name of County FA, and the
name/position of the person ordering the AED.
