Children's heart surgery: Edwin Poots announces review

An international team of experts will assess the current and future needs for children's heart surgery in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The review has been commissioned by health ministers in both jurisdictions amid fears that Belfast could lose its children's cardiac unit.

Northern Ireland health minister Edwin Poots said the decision to review children's heart surgery should be viewed positively.
