Motion text

That this House is very concerned about flaws in the decision making process undertaken by the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts (JCPCT) regarding the configuration of paediatric congenital cardiac surgery units; considers that the decision made on the future configuration disregards patient choice, is counter to the criteria for re-configuration laid down by the Secretary of State and has been determined by the interests of managers and not those of sick children and their families; calls on the Secretary of State to conduct a thorough review of the process and the evidence, for him to require the JCPCT to make publicly available all the agendas, reports and minutes of private meetings held prior to the so-called `decision making' meeting on 4 July 2012; and asks him to reject the scoring system used and instead have a complete re-evaluation using a different and more accurate method of assessment.
