Vale Dr Harry Nespolon

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) is saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Harry Nespolon, President of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).


PSA National President Associate Professor Chris Freeman said while PSA hasn’t always seen eye to eye with the RACGP during Dr Nespolon’s tenure, both organisations maintained great respect for one another.


“Harry was a pragmatic man, focused on patient care and he will be sorely missed by his patients, colleagues and healthcare in general,” he said.


“I admired Harry’s honesty, deep dedication to his profession, and his remarkable quick wit.


“Harry was a strong advocate for GPs and their profession and despite battling deteriorating health in recent months he was still able to provide strong leadership and achieve a great deal during the COVID-19 pandemic and will no doubt leave an enduring legacy.


“On behalf of PSA I would like to pass on my deepest condolences to his family, friends and many colleagues.”
