High Court bid to save child heart unit

The High Court is due to hear a legal challenge over plans to end child heart surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.

An official review concluded last July that the hospital should stop operations so that care could be concentrated at fewer, larger sites.

The Save Our Surgery group is seeking a judicial review of the NHS decision. It says the consultation process behind the plan was unfair and legally flawed.
