South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) has appointed a new interim Medical Director. Dr Andy Carson replaces the previous Medical Director, Dr Rory McCrea, who stepped down from the trust for personal reasons last week.

Dr Carson will provide medical oversight at SECAmb two day a week – the same number of days as Dr McCrea.

Dr Carson’s substantive position remains with West Midlands Ambulance Service.

Acting SECAmb Chief Executive Geraint Davies said, “We’re pleased to have been able to appoint Dr Carson as our interim Medical Director. I’d like to welcome him to the trust and know that the wealth of experience he brings is sure to be of benefit as we move forward and as we seek to appoint a new permanent Medical Director.”

Dr Carson said, “I’m pleased to have been appointed to this position. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and working with my new colleagues at SECAmb.”
