Sigma announced its partnership with national defibrillator company and lifesaving program Heart180, as it launches the organisation’s AEDs (defibrillators) across its national pharmacy network.
The announcement follows the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s recent partnership with the Heart180 program which will now see Sigma pharmacy brands, including Amcal, Guardian and Discount Drug Stores, have access to this technology along with Heart180’s extensive online media and training modules.
“Our partnership with Heart180 builds on our unrivalled commitment to our 1,200+ branded and independent pharmacies in our network in helping to build healthcare solutions for communities that make a real, and in this case, life altering difference,” says Adam Goss, Sigma General Manager – Pharmacy.
“In addition to providing our customers with access to this equipment, we will also be working alongside the Heart180 program to offer ongoing team training and development with these defibrillators” adds Mr Goss.
“Sudden cardiac arrest can strike anywhere and anytime, so partnering with an organisation, such as Sigma, will continue to provide us a national platform to achieve our mission in having a defibrillator located in, or within a 180-second proximity of every Australian,” says Guy Leech, Founder & Director, Heart180.
