What does the app do?

This app alerts people to suspected cardiac arrests happening close to them, so that they can assist before emergency services get to them. By getting people who know how to perform CPR and use an AED to respond as soon as possible when a person is having a cardiac arrest, people can get life-saving care. The apps works when a call goes to the 111 clinical control centre and is coded as a suspected cardiac arrest, the computer aided dispatch system will automatically notify the closest
GoodSAM responders within 1000 metres of the incident.  It is entirely voluntary to download the app. In order to receive alerts, you need to have the app open. You don’t have to be in the app itself but should have it open in the background. If you swipe up or log out, or reset your phone the Responder App switches off. 

For the complete app description, go to Google Play, iTunes or the app website.
