Professor Brohi named again as one of London's most influential people
Professor Karim Brohi, Centre for Trauma Sciences (C4TS) lead and Consultant Trauma and Vascular Surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust, has for the second year in a row been named in the Evening Standard's Progress 1000 list which recognises the most influential people in the capital.
Professor Brohi is director of the capital’s major trauma network, set up in 2010 in response to the July 7 terror attacks in 2005.
The network has led to a 20 per cent reduction in the capital’s mortality rate from major trauma, and was vital in saving many victims of the Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park terror attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire.
Commenting on the recognition, Professor Brohi said: “It is a great honour to be named in this list. It reflects the amazing trauma care delivered by all disciplines and specialities at the Royal London Hospital's Major Trauma Centre, the commitment and drive of my research team, and the amazing institutional commitment to trauma care, innovation and research from Queen Mary University of London's School of Medicine and Dentistry, the Blizard Institute and Barts Health.”
