The CHT works with you every step of the way to implement your project to not only ensure you have the most suitable
equipment, but also to make sure you have the following in place too:
 
 
• Public liability insurances
• Accreditation
• Recommissioning strategies
• Health and Safety policies
• Community training and awareness programmes
• Site maintenance regimens
• Correct reporting processes
• Theft and Damage insurances cover
• Installation by qualified electrician
• Ambulance service MoU
• VAT
• Hosting agreements
• Owner/Responsible person agreements
• Fixed cost base
• Post rescue counseling
• Correct reporting processes
• Duty of Care
• Quality standards
 
A CHT Managed Solution offers a cost effective method of implementing a quality defibrillator project that addresses the
many potential liabilities. The advantages of this approach is:
 
• CHT becomes the ‘owner’ in law, and therefore accept the main liabilities
• CHT has insurances, including Public Liability and Theft/Damage.
• CHT takes control of policies and procedures
• CHT will make sure of the equipment is out of service for any reason, you will have replacement equipment for the club.
• CHT provides a counselling service as part of ‘duty of care’
• The club gets the best equipment available
• CHT has the contract with the local ambulance service
• CHT arranges any hosting and other agreements with the physical hosting site (eg village hall)
 
The club still has obligations.
The club will carry out regular weekly and monthly checks on the equipment, reporting this via the CHT WebNos
Governance system. Also, cPAD schemes have running costs (consumables, replacement batteries, etc). Therefore:
 
1. Any replacement equipment and/or consumables are purchased via CHT, or
2. The club agrees to fund raise for CHT to cover annual ongoing costs at £126 per pa.
 
Managed solutions are a much easier way for the club to get higher quality equipment, looked after, cheaper, and liabilities
addressed. The managed solutions agreement runs for a minimum of 4 years. At the end of this period the community can
buy and take over the equipment for £1, or ask CHT to continue the Managed Solutions provision to a maximum of 10 years.

Disclaimer

Please make sure you have read and understood this disclaimer - It will be assumed that you have read prior to CHT receiving any request. CHT are not responsible for your fund raising, nor your cPAD operations, but may assist in both. CHTs only aim is to support the installation of a cPAD scheme in the most cost effective way possible adhering to Best Practice, and help save lives in your community. This website, and any downloaded information, is for information only on how to go about obtaining and installing a cPAD, and other relevant information. All copyrights and trademarks are recognised. All support for the cPAD will be undertaken by the village committee responsible and via standard manufacturers warranties. Any training organisation will only be responsible for the initial awareness training and not for the functioning or maintenance of the AED. Please do not send any monies to CHT until you have registered your scheme with us, and have agreement from the local ambulance service for the establishment of a cPAD scheme. All schemes must be registered with the local ambulance service (CHT will also undertake this or you can do via this site, but this does not remove responsibility for you to notify the local ambulance service of your AED location). 999/112 (ambulance) must always be called prior to using a cPAD equipment. VAT may be applicable if your organisation is not an eligible body as defined by HMRC. All current or historical claims for VAT will be met by the local community. All schemes will be asked to sign an agreement taking responsibility for their own fund raising and donations to CHT, and then the operation and maintenance of the cPAD equipment. All CHT provided schemes will need to manage their maintenance through the WebNoS online system as a condition of CHT support. It is your responsibility to maintain the equipment in working order and to make sure the local ambulance service is aware of this. WebNoS makes this possible and also acts as an audit trail for management of the equipment. Sites provided by CHT and not using WebNoS may be disengaged from the ambulance service CAD systems. Any web site showing defibrillator locations is for information only, and should not be used in preference to dialling 999. CHT works in close cooperation with the UK ambulance services. Always dial 999 in an emergency
