Yorkshire’s Children’s Heart Surgery Unit – Campaign Update

Yorkshire's Children's Heart Surgery Unit - Campaign Update

Jason joined fellow Yorkshire MPs, from all 3 main parties, for an update on the campaign to keep Yorkshire’s Children’s Heart Surgery Unit in Leeds. The Judicial Review will be heard at the High Court on 11/12 February 2013 whilst the Independent Review Panel, tasked by the Secretary of State to review the decision, will report back to him by 28 March 2013.

Last year the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts decided to close the Leeds Children’s Heart Unit with children and parents being expected to travel up to Newcastle. Jason and fellow campaigners believe the decision making process was flawed and that the Leeds Unit, which is already viable and on course to deliver at least 400 surgical procedures per year, should be retained.

Fundraising efforts for the Judicial Review are going well but need your support:
