Nearest AED / Defibrillator

Is in The Madeley Centre – ask a volunteer or staff member for its whereabouts.

For a heart attack, you will need a defib – time is critical – so don’t hesitate!

There’s also one at The Reading Room, Betley:

The AED is the porch in a locked cabinet. The AED and its location is on the WMAS database together with the access code.
Members of the public can gain access 24/7 by ringing 999 and obtaining the access code.
The code is also exhibited inside the Reading Room for regular users of the room and the code will be given to The Swan and the Shop, with a reminder that even if they give the code to anyone they must still ring 999.
