July 27, 2020
The RACP has expressed its deepest sympathies for the family and friends of Dr Harry Nespolon and paid tribute to his enormous contribution to the profession and public health in Australia.
“Tragically Australia has lost an important health advocate and powerful voice for General Practice as the President of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. He was far too young and had many years of contribution ahead of him,” President of the RACP, Prof. John Wilson said.
“Dr Nespolon demonstrated his dedication to his members and the best interests of the health of Australians over a distinguished career and recently at the height of perhaps the most difficult period in our lifetimes as medical professionals.
“It is typical of Dr Nespolon’s work ethic and passion that he worked hard for his members and the profession right throughout his illness.
“On behalf of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and all our members I express our deepest sympathies for Harry’s family, friends and colleagues,” Prof Wilson said.
