  6. Fully deserved.

    Professor Keith Porter, the consultant responsible, for co-ordinating care of British troops injured in Afghanistan, is knighted.

    A consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and the UK's only professor of clinical traumatology, Prof Porter has been leading the treatment of complex battle injuries.
    His work has led to improved survival rates and more rapid recovery for injured service personnel.
    He said: "I am privileged to be the civilian lead over a service that is highly-tuned and fully engaged in the care of injured soldiers.
    "I am proud of the efforts of the military and NHS teams that work side-by-side to deliver excellent outcomes for patients who previously had non-survivable injuries."
    Prof Porter, 61, explained that in his work he deals with injuries in military patients that bear no comparison with normal wounds.
    "We are seeing multiple injuries from firearms and explosive devices which require multiple operations and critical care."
    But the prognosis for many of these patients, he says, is much better than it would have been.
    "In Birmingham there are cases of patients surviving when they wouldn't have three years ago," Professor Porter said.
    He was involved in looking after patients in the first Gulf War and admits that military care, from wounding to discharge and rehabilitation, has improved dramatically.
    "Our patients come back here now, about 36 hours post-injury, invariably in the best possible physiological condition they can be."
