British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation is the UK’s leading cardiovascular charity, funding life saving research.

Nation of lifesavers

The Nation of Lifesavers was a nationwide programme to make more defibrillators available in more places and train more people in CPR.

I built an ecommerce-focused proposition that allowed customers to receive expert advice and purchase the right defibrillator for them. The original proposition began within the assumption that large businesses would be the target customer group and so being able to integrate into procurement systems would be a key feature. Validating this assumption taught us that large businesses had in-house expertise in sourcing, and so we pivoted into a Recommendation Service for small businesses and community organisations that needed expert advice in choosing and learning how to use a defibrillator.

As part of the recommendation service I built a chatbot to help users choose the right defibrillator for them and help us to validate whether a key part of the recommendation service was the ‘concierge’ aspect of speaking to a person in order to have confidence in purchasing and using a defibrillator.
