Stuart Andrew MP has asked questions in the House of Commons about the costs for the review of children's heart surgery at Leeds and the decision-making process to date.
Costs incurred by NHS Specialised Services on the Safe and Sustainable review of children's heart services in England and Wales and the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts decision-making process, to March 2013.
- Legal costs for the judicial review case brought by Save Our Surgery Ltd £301,000
- External communications consultants £1,740,000
- Other costs incurred (from 2009-10 to 2012-13) £6,036,000
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".
