NHS England has published the terms of reference for the independent review into children’s cardiac services in Bristol. The review will be led by Eleanor Grey QC, an independent barrister and former Counsel to the Bristol Royal Infirmary public inquiry, and Sir Ian Kennedy, the former chairman of the Bristol public inquiry, who will act as consultant advisor.
The Review will be independent and its terms of reference have been drawn up following conversations with the families affected. The review will establish an office in Bristol and seek to ensure all interested parties have an opportunity to make a contribution. The review team will issue a public call for evidence and make further announcements about how to get in touch as soon as possible.
