Court of Appeal rejects Royal Brompton's legal challenge23rd April 2012
The Royal Brompton Hospital has lost an appeal to challenge an NHS consultation which advised closing the hospital's heart surgery unit.
The hospital said in a statement that it was "disappointed" with the Court of Appeal's ruling. Sir Neil McKay, chair of the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts, which is managing the Safe and Sustainable review, said: "The court action has delayed an open and honest process of consultation and has been frustrating to many of us, including Royal Colleges and professional associations, which have said that change to children's heart services is long overdue."
