TEN sick children have had to be transferred up to 120 miles from a Leeds paediatric heart unit while surgery was suspended, it emerged today.

However, the decision was widely criticised by experts who said the information was incomplete and the unit was given the all-clear to resume surgery last week after it was agreed it was safe.

A Leeds MP said senior figures behind the decision should not play any further role in reorganising childrenís heart surgery anywhere in Britain after they ďput children at greater riskĒ.

Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland said NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh and Sir Roger Boyle, director of the Nicor, which oversees cardiovascular mortality data across the NHS, to be held to account over their role in the ďshambolicĒ handling of the matter.

Mr Mulholland added: ďIt is great that childrenís heart surgery has started again today in Leeds, but now we need investigation into the wrong decision to halt it.

ďIt is time for accountability. The arrogance of Sir Bruce Keogh and Sir Roger Boyle has been breathtaking.
