We have installed a Defibrilator on the rear wall of the Parley Sports club building, facing the playing fields - 275 Christchurch Road, West Parley, Ferndown, Dorset BH22 8QF. Should you need to use this in the event of emergency, when you call 999 they will give you a cabinet code and talk you through the whole process. Hopefully, it won’t be needed, but having access to defibrillators when waiting for ambulance crews can make a huge difference. Please see our Parish Defibrillators webpage.
There is also an accessible Defibrilator at The MS Centre Dorset, Church Lane, West Parley, BH22 8TS.
