Hospital suspends child heart surgery after deaths
"An investigation has been launched into the deaths of four children who died after undergoing heart surgery at a leading hospital.
"All heart surgery for children at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford has been suspended while the investigation into the "small run of four deaths" is carried out. The four fatalities took place within the past four months and have prompted an inquiry because they represent a higher death rate than had been expected.
"Families of sick children awaiting surgery at the John Radcliffe Hospital have been contacted by the medical authorities and those most urgently in need of treatment are being sent to other hospitals. A total of 26 children currently awaiting surgery are affected by the decision."
