Members of the Save Our Surgery campaign group have welcomed the decision not to close a childrens' heart unit in Leeds.
Spokeswoman Sharon Cheng said that the Health Secretary's comments earlier today "completely vindicated" the stand taken by the group:
We are pleased and relieved that the Health Secretary has decided that a new review is necessary before NHS England can decide where children’s heart surgery services should reside in England and Wales.
His comments about the Safe & Sustainable process and outcome completely vindicate the action that we took to challenge this, and demonstrate that exposing the flaws in the review was the right and necessary thing to do ...
The trauma experienced by patients and families across our Region throughout the Safe & Sustainable process, as acknowledged by the Health Secretary, must never be repeated.
