“I really didn’t expect to get a letter like this. From being born in Dudley to moving to India as a child, then settling back in the UK, I never imagined I would receive an honour as prestigious as this. I would like to thank everyone at QA Hospital, as they have helped me throughout my career, and my family of their support,” Prof Kar told Portsmouth-based The News.
