Professor Costa said: “I’m delighted to be elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences. While it’s my name on the list of Fellows, this honour really reflects the hard work and dedication of the whole of the Trauma and Emergency Care team within NDORMS. We will all keep working towards better outcomes for patients suffering traumatic injuries in the UK and globally.”
