FOI request detail

Updated list of defibrillators at TfL-managed stations

Request ID: FOI-2762-2223
Date published: 20 February 2023

You asked

Dear FoI team, Please could you provide an up-to-date list of all TfL or TfL concession-managed stations (i.e. London Underground, London Overground, Elizabeth line, DLR, Tramlink, cable car or major bus station/interchange) which have an automated external defibrillator (AED) available for use by the public? If reasonably possible, please could you also highlight the stations at which these devices are accessible at all times, i.e. including when the station is closed and/or unstaffed? Additionally, please could you provide specific information regarding any AED at Rectory Road Overground station? There seems to be an empty AED cabinet in a public area which would be available only during station opening hours, but as of January 2023 there is no AED within the wall-mounted cabinet. Please advise whether there are any current or previous plans to provide a publicly available AED at this station in the near future, and whether any future device will be installed in an area open to the public outside station opening/staffing hours. Thank you.

Our ref: FOI-2762-2223/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 25 January 2023 asking for information about defibrillators at TfL-managed stations.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

Please find attached a map showing the locations of defibrillators on London Underground. (This is the most up to date map we hold – it doesn’t show the Northern Line extension, which does has defibrillators). Elm Park also has a defibrillator now. We are in the process of beginning to roll out defibs to every London Underground station.

Please find attached a spreadsheet showing the locations of defibrillators for the cable car, London River Services, and bus stations.

All Elizabeth line stations have defibrillators. These are accessible at all times the stations are open.

The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) do not have any external defibrillators for public use. The DLR are working on a project to look at installing defibrillators across a number of the stations but this is currently in the early stages.

For London Overground, please see the attached table showing existing defibrillators and ones that are due to be installed this year, we are expecting these installation to be completed by the summer.

London Trams do not have any defibrillators at any Tram Stops. However, there are a number of main-line rail stations that are served by trams which do have defibrillators.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
