'No confirmation' on lifting of heart surgery suspension

Sky News correspondent Gerard Tubb tweeted:


Leeds NHS Trust unable to confirm claimed lifting of children's heart surgery suspension: "The meeting's still going on"

The Conservative MP for Pudsey, Stuart Andrew, who earlier tweeted that surgery at the unit "will be resumed", has added:


Still waiting for the official statement on surgery at Leeds


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.
