Following your reading of my report, 'Never miss a beat', will you lobby the Government to ensure that all buildings that are part of the GLA family have a Public Access Defibrillator installed in them, with a full governance system in place?

Significant progress is being made in this area. For example, police stations in three London boroughs now have defibrillators and there are plans to extend this across London. This summer three Greenwich fire stations were the first in London to have defibrillators fitted on the outside of their buildings.  

Additionally, there are 213 defibrillators situated across 148 London Underground sites.

My officers will work with the wider GLA family to explore wider roll out.
