Children's hospital 'let down parents'

Where's the accountability for our children who have sadly passed away?

Faye Valentine's son Luke died after heart surgery at Bristol Hospital

Following the Independent Review of Children's Cardiac Services in Bristol, NHS England pledged to ensure that "a consistent level of care is available for every patient in every part of the country".

We're joined by Faye Valentine, whose son Luke passed away following a heart procedure, and Rachel Puaca, whose son Jack has been left with permanent brain damage after open heart surgery, both at Bristol Hospital.

Both mothers are demanding justice after the hospital admitted the failing was the fault of the staff, but only in private.

Major changes in the way heart services are provided across the country are expected to be announced today. NHS England said in a statement that next week would "see the publication of the commissioning changes across England, effective from April 2017 at the latest". The outcome could see drastic changes in the way services are provided, both for adults and children.
