Lawyers for the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts have rejected unfairness claims made by campaigners who are fighting the closure of the Leeds children's heart surgery unit.
"Save Our Surgery" claims that by not revealing the score breakdown to decide which child heart surgery unit should close, the process was unfair.
The group have taken their fight to the High Court this week, but lawyers for the JCPCT said there was no legal obligation to release breakdown, nor would it have been of assistance if they had.
They also argued Leeds was given sufficient feedback to make meaningful responses.
