Hope for children's heart surgery unit in Leicester

A judge at the High Court has said part of an NHS consultation process into changes to children's heart surgery services must be carried out again.

It's after a ruling that the process that lead to the decision to close the unit at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester, among others, was legally flawed.

The judge emphasised that she was not ordering that the whole consultation process had to return to the start.
