Leicester MP Liz Kendall fights to keep heart surgery unit in region

Leicester West MP Liz Kendall has today called on the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to intervene in the decision by the NHS to close the region's only children's heart surgery unit at Leicester's Glenfield Hospital.

Speaking to ITV News today the Labour MP who was part of the efforts to save the heart unit just three years ago said she hoped the clinical evidence provided by the unit would lead to MPs to reconsider the decision.
