The Australian health sector has lost a great intellect, advocate and human being.
People living with disadvantage, whoever they are and wherever they live, have lost a true champion.
Many people have lost a colleague and friend.
And the manner of Gavin’s death, and that of his partner, makes these losses all the more shocking and tragic.
The NRHA extends its heartfelt sympathy to the families involved.
All of those determined to right inequities will have to work a little harder in the absence of Gavin's support. But hopefully they will be a little more inspired by the lasting memory of his work and the manner in which he achieved it.
