The future of the Children's Heart Unit at the Freeman hospital in Newcastle is again uncertain after Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt ordered a review.
He's asked for a fresh look at a decision to close the children's heart surgery units at Leeds General Infirmary, Glenfield Hospital in Leicester and the Royal Brompton in London.
It was announced in July that children's heart surgery would continue at the Freeman Hospital but there's been intense lobbying from the other centres to remain open.
Campaigners to keep the unit at the Freeman Hospital open were jubilant back in July when it seemed the long battle had been won to keep children's heart surgery services at the hospital.
