Children’s heart surgery at Leeds General Infirmary will begin again on Wednesday, April 10.
We stated on Friday that we wished to restart surgery once our partners were as confident in our staff and services as we are.
I am delighted to say we are now reopening the unit having had the quality of our service independently verified by the Care Quality Commission, NHS England and the NHS TrustDevelopment Authority following a rapid review process which took place overthe weekend.
