Vale Dr Harry Nespolon
Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) President Dr Harry Nespolon has passed away aged 57 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Dr Nespolon displayed extraordinary leadership during the pandemic, advocating on behalf of GPs and the general practice profession to ensure Australia’s primary health clinicians can deliver patients the best possible care.
“The RACGP Board is in awe of everything Harry has been able to achieve, particularly over the last seven months,” said Board Chair, Christine Nixon.
“The RACGP and general practice was such a big part of his life, and he gave so much of himself to advocating for the central role of general practice to the health of Australians.”
