Heart unit closure up for discussion: Your tweets

We asked you what you thought about the proposals to close either Leeds or Newcastle's children's heart services.

This was what you had to say:


@itvtynetees neither heart unit should close. Simple as that. They are both vital.


@itvtynetees as someone who has grown up with the service at Newcastle, very disappointed at the proposal. It is such a vital service!


@itvtynetees It makes as much sense as closing Border to combine it with Tyne Tees! A patch that big cannot be served adequately.
