Child heart surgery to resume at Leeds

Help

Children's heart surgery is set to restart at Leeds General Infirmary, a week after it was claimed data showed higher-than-usual death rates there.

Operations are due to resume early next week after a meeting between NHS bosses and other partners on Thursday night.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said work would be done to give "sufficient assurance" the unit is safe to reopen.

The BBC understands Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt believes the NHS was right to investigate safety at the unit.
