Child heart op units: 'Devastation and anger' in Leeds

Child heart surgery should be stopped at three of the 10 hospitals that perform the procedures, NHS bosses have said.

An official review concluded the units at Leicester's Glenfield Hospital, Leeds General Infirmary and London's Royal Brompton should stop surgery.

The recommendation was greeted with dismay by parents in Leeds.

Steph Ward said that she was both devastated and angry at the news, and vowed that she would continue the fight to keep the unit open.
