save Glenfield children's hospital

30/11/17 - We Won

Great news! NHS bosses have decided not to end lifesaving children's heart surgery at a hospital.
The decision follows a long campaign by parents of children treated at Leicester's Glenfield Hospital, charity Heart Link, MPs and hospital staff.

If plans had gone ahead, East Midlands patients would have been treated at other centres further away.

Thank you so much to everyone who signed the petition.
