Calls for inquiry into suspension of heart surgery at Leeds

Monday, April 15, 2013

Sheffield Heeley MP, Meg Munn, is one of a number of MPs who have signed a letter calling for the Health Select Committee to launch an inquiry to investigate the recent suspension of services at the Leeds children’s heart surgery unit.

Whilst surgery at the Leeds unit has now resumed, the MPs are calling for the influential parliamentary committee to establish an inquiry as a matter of urgency to investigate the way the decision to suspend the unit was made.

Meg said:

“Suspending surgery at the unit created anxiety and confusion for many patients and their families. It also caused inconvenience and extra stress for parents of children who had to go elsewhere for treatment. Although costs will be reimbursed, this does not compensate for all the extra worry created for people who had to travel much further and be a long way from families. 

We argued from the start that the decision-making process based on the Safe and Sustainable Review process was flawed.  The recent High Court judgement vindicates this position.  The NHS has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on legal fees to defend their actions money that should have been spent caring for patients.  We now call on the Health Select Committee to investigate the suspension of services as a matter of urgency.”
