That this House considers Sir Neil McKay's review of children's cardiac services has unreasonably weighted the odds against retaining the excellent children's cardiac centre at Leeds Infirmary by failing to consider the advantages of such units being placed in the same building as other hospital services, as they are in Leeds, by failing to adequately consult the wider areas such as Humberside, which depend on the Leeds unit, and by placing Leeds in only option Dfor retention, while other centres are in all options; takes the view thatthe consultation fails to recognise the excellence and the strengths of the Leeds unit and discounts the needs of the children over the wide areas of Yorkshire and Humberside who depend on it; and therefore urges the Department of Health not to drive Leeds and the Department to the expense and trouble of winning a judicial review against the consultation, such as that that the Royal Brompton has just been awarded, or to the future considerable expense of an unwise appeal aginst court decisions, but to listen to the strong concerns coming up from hospitals, health bodies, patients and the wider public in Yorkshire and Humberside against any threat of closure of the Leeds unit, to discount the bias against Leeds in the report and to give Leeds the fair prospect it deserves of carrying on its valuable work into the future.
