Local Conservative MP for Pudsey, Horsforth & Aireborough Stuart Andrew has called comments by Sir Roger Boyle, 'outrageous' after the Department of Health's former National Director for Heart Disease said he would not allow his own daughter to be treated at Leeds General Infirmary:
Have asked for Sir Bruce Keogh to reconfirm his view that surgery in Leeds is safe. The comments by Sir Roger are totally unfair on parents and staff.
Am astounded that he [Sir Roger Boyle] continues to rely on unverified data. Outrageous.
Sharon Cheng, of Save Our Surgery (SOS), which campaigned for surgery to be resumed at Leeds, said:
Sir Roger Boyle's comments of this morning are extremely unhelpful and undermine the progress made over the last few days to begin to rebuild heart patients' families' trust and confidence in the Leeds children's heart surgery unit.
His implication that surgery should not have been resumed at Leeds contradicts everything we have heard from NHS England, the Care Quality Commission and NHS medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh, who have all stated unequivocally that the unit is safe, hence their resumption of surgery.
Sir Bruce himself went on record this week saying he would feel comfortable having his child operated on in the unit.
Let me be absolutely clear - the Leeds unit would not be operating if there were any concerns whatsoever about mortality rates or anything else.
Once again, this is an example of Sir Roger Boyle speaking out without due regard to the necessary process, the verified facts or the implications of his actions on patients and their families.
He is not an impartial party in regards to Leeds and as an adviser to the Safe and Sustainable review, we do question his motives.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has defended the re-opening of a children's heart unit after Sir Roger Boyle the Department of Health's former National Director for Heart Disease said he would not send his daughter to the unit.

All partners were fully in agreement that this was the correct course of action to take and surgery has now resumed.
This was publicly reconfirmed at a meeting of councillors held in Leeds on Wednesday when the deputy medical director of NHS England reaffirmed the view that all the child heart surgery units in England, including Leeds, are safe to undertake surgery.
The government's former heart tsar says he would not send his own daughter for treatment at Leeds General Infirmary's child heart surgery unit.
Speaking to the BBC, Sir Roger Boyle - the Department of Health's former National Director for Heart Disease - said "I would go somewhere else. I would go to Newcastle."
Operations resumed at the Leeds unit this week after they were suspended when NHS figures suggested it had a death rate double that of other centres.
The hospital has provides assurance about its standards of care.
But Sir Roger said it remains "just on the edge of what we call an alert".
"In other words, showing that they were at right on the edge of acceptability."
Dr Paul Murphy, an intensive care consultant in Leeds and NHS Blood and Transplants national lead for organ donation called the 50% increase in donations a "landmark event". He said:
It is testament to the changes we have made at every level in hospitals to deliver this, to the commitment of critical care and emergency department staff to donation, and most of all to the generosity of donors and their families. But we can and must do more, because patients continue to die needlessly waiting for an organ transplant.

Surgery was suspended last month over concerns of death rates, the quality of surgery and staffing levels.

The first stage of the review which took place at the weekend advised that the quality of surgery and staffing were sufficient to allow a phased resumption of operations.
