The Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, has asked for an initial review of plans to relocate the children's congenital heart and ECMO services from Glenfield to Birmingham Children's Hospital.

It comes after a call for a review from the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Health, Overview and Scrutiny Committee, which wrote to Mr Hunt earlier this month.
