A senior doctor at the Leeds General Infirmary children's heart unit says she and many of her colleagues are "very angry" at the way the unit has been treated. Children's heart surgery was suspended at Leeds on Thursday, amid claims of high death rates.
But doctors at the unit have told ITV News Calendar that the data used to halt operations is incomplete and inaccurate.
"We very much feel that this has been targeted at us and it feels very much like we're under fire - and myself and many of my colleagues are very angry about this."
NHS England and the Care Quality Commission have confirmed that Children’s Heart Surgery Services at Leeds General Infirmary are safe.
Children's heart surgery is set to resume at Leeds General Infirmary after days of uncertainty over its future.
The Children's Heart Federation says the interests of management at the LGI have been "put ahead of critically ill children".
