Andrew Carson sadly passed away, aged 62 years, on 27th March 2018. He was a pupil at Walhampton until July 1968 when he went to Bryanston School.
Andy’s funeral service was held at All Saints Church, Wribbenhall, Bewdley in the West Midlands on 26 April 2018.
Alongside family and friends, West Midlands Ambulance Service paid their respect and admiration for Andy by laying on full honours parade, complete with motorcycle outrider, a 1930’s ambulance and fly-past by the WM Air Ambulance.
After a welcome and opening prayer by Reverend George Pitcher, who had known Andy since their days at university, the ambulance service’s Chief Exec, Anthony Marsh, gave a moving tribute to Andy’s work and role.
Amongst the congregation were many friends and colleagues from Birmingham University and many other medical professionals. 
Liz Vinycomb, his sister (and wife of OW Robert Vinycombe) has shared this summary:
Andy did so much in his professional career as a doctor it is difficult to sum it up in a few words…
Andy had worked as an inner city GP in Birmingham for over 30 years and was a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners. 
For over a decade Andy had been Associate Dean for GP Training for Birmingham and Solihull, responsible for the education of over 300 GP Trainees at any one time, during a comprehensive three-year training programme. 
In 2011, Andy joined West Midlands Ambulance Service as Medical Director, a position he held until his death on 27 March 2018.
He chaired a number of internal committees and also oversaw the governance of responders working with partner organisations, such as local BASICS schemes, Air Ambulance Services and the MERIT response. 
He was also the Trust’s Caldicott Guardian and at the time of his death was involved developing a ground breaking electronic patient record for use by crews in association with the wider NHS.
