Hannah Jones initially refused a heart transplant
A terminally ill girl who refused heart surgery has now had a transplant.
Great Ormond Street Hospital in London has confirmed that 14-year-old Hannah Jones, from Marden, near Hereford, is one of its patients.
Her mother, Kirsty, said the operation had been completed and doctors believed it had been successful.
Hannah, whose heart has been weakened by medication for leukaemia, initially refused a transplant, saying she wanted to die with dignity.
The hospital confirmed that she had been admitted but refused to comment further on her case.
Hannah is thought to have been transferred to the hospital on Tuesday night.
Her mother said she was now recuperating in intensive care and was on a ventilator.
She said the family remained hopeful that the new organ would not be rejected.
She said: ''Hannah was given the new heart and the general consensus is that all is well with it.
''She is stable, but is still in intensive care where she has been receiving intravenous medication to aid her recovery from surgery.
''We all hope that the new heart is not rejected, and that Hannah goes on to make a full, and healthy, recovery.''
Hannah's case made the headlines when Herefordshire Primary Care Trust took legal advice following her decision not to have a heart transplant.
The PCT said it was advised that it could not force anyone to have treatment they did not wish to undergo.
Hannah's father, Andrew, said at the time that he and his wife supported her decision.
He told the BBC he had been phoned by a member of the child protection team at the PCT saying Hannah could be taken from their care if she refused to have the operation.
But he said this warning was withdrawn after the child protection officer had spoken to Hannah herself, who confirmed she did not want the surgery.
The trust said it could not comment on this claim because of patient confidentiality.
It said it was satisfied that Hannah was mature enough to make a decision about not having surgery.
Hannah initially said that the operation might not work, and if it did, she would need constant medication.
She said she wanted to halt treatment and spend the rest of her life at home.
