MP: NHS England has made 'about turn' on heart unit

MP for Leeds North West Greg Mulholland has tweeted:


Breaking news is that NHS England have done yet another about turn over the #Leeds children's heart unit. Really unbelievable! #competent?


The whole handling of this by NHS England has been breathtakingingly inept. They know that there is no good reason not to restart surgery.


Do you want to know what this is about? This is about NHS England desperately trying to find a way to get #SirBruceKeogh off the hook.


Leeds heart unit talks continue

NHS England has insisted the children's heart unit at Leeds General Infirmary remains suspended pending a review, despite claims from two local MPs about a meeting on the issue. A ban on surgery was imposed over concerns about the numbers of deaths.
