A review into the decision to close three children's heart surgery units, including one in Leicester, will be given to the Health Secretary.
Campaigners have been fighting to keep the unit at Glenfield Hospital open and hope this review will secure its future.
More than £6m has been spent on the review into the future of children's heart surgeries which includes Glenfield Hospital in Leicester.
It follows the decision in July to cut the number of hospitals offering surgery for children with heart problems from 11 to seven.
The costs of the review were revealed in a Parliamentary question from Loughborough MP, Stuart Andrew, answered by Health Minister Anna Soubry.
