Local Liberal Democrat MP Greg Mulholland has accused the NHS of handling the closure of Leeds General Infirmary's children's heart unit "shambolically":
– Greg Mulholland MP
I think the whole thing has been handled shambolically. One minute we've been told surgery will start, the next minute it won't and so on.
The communication from NHS England has been woeful and the handling has been deeply questionable.
I've called for an investigation by the Secretary of State for Health, who now needs to step in.
