John Radcliffe Hospital 'came lowest in review ranking'

The children's heart surgery unit at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital should close according to a national review, vice-chaired by Leslie Hamilton.

Mr Hamilton said that the safety of heart operations could be improved by having fewer, more specialised centres.

Children's heart surgery at the John Radcliffe has been under the spotlight since it emerged that four children died there between last December and February of this year.
