Parents had criticised the timing of the suspension of surgery at the unit, which came 24 hours after a High Court judge ruled that a decision-making process to close it as part of an England-wide reorganisation of services was "legally flawed".
It is vitally important to ensure that the Leeds Unit is safe to perform children's heart surgery. However, it is concerning that such a major decision was made without clear evidence of the figures relating to death rates.
If I had a child awaiting such surgery I would prefer a cautious approach. I would want to know that safety was a priority. I do appreciate how upsetting this must have been for many families. However, the fact that the unit is being re-opened for children's heart surgery should provide re-assurance.
