A mother from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has said she is "absolutely thrilled" that the children's heart unit at Leeds General Infirmary is set to reopen.
Jo Lancaster, whose six year old son Toby has undergone two operations on his heart at the unit, said she has never had any doubts about its safety.
It's such a relief that it's reopened. We were never in any doubt that Leeds was safe. I just hope it has not tarnished the reputation of the unit.
The whole team are absolutely fantastic. They all deserve a medal.
I would have that surgery in Leeds tomorrow. I would have had it there last weekend if he had needed it then
I wouldn't feel safe taking him anywhere else.
