It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Dr Andrew Wilson died on Friday 2nd March after a short illness.
Dr Andrew Wilson was a GP Partner at Schopwick for over 30 years, retiring in 2012 after a distinguished career in General Practice and GP Education.
Andrew was awarded the Gold Medal in his Medical Finals ( the highest score for the whole of London University ) and brought his enormous intelligence and educational expertise to Schopwick in the 1980’s. He believed that learning should be fun and that all members of the team should be involved in change and the development of the best possible clinical care in General Practice. He was a great leader, gifted clinician and many patients will remember he was partnered in practice and in life by his wife Chris.
Andrew was involved for many years with GP specialty training as a Trainer, Programme Director and as the Chief Examiner for the Royal College of General Practitioners. He brought to all his roles a rigour and a critical mind that helped shape the next generation of GPs. He always cared for his patients and was passionate in offering them the best possible clinical care. Schopwick Surgery under his guidance became a beacon of excellent practice and many of his ideas are still at the core of how we operate as a practice today.
We are proud to have known him and honoured to have been his GP colleagues and his friends. We are all grieving his loss.
There will be a book of condolence at both the Elstree & Bushey Surgeries and we hope many of you will take the time to share your memories of this great Doctor.
