Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, has tweeted:
"Secretary of State announces that Sir Roger Boyle will play no further part in the Safe & Sustainable review."
Professor Sir Boyle had faced demands to step down over his claims that he would still not want his daughter to receive treatment at Leeds General Infirmary – even though it has reopened following a Government review.
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".
