In Loving Memory of


Simon Parker

This condolence book is a tribute to Simon Parker. Please feel free to add messages or memories of Simon which you would like to share.

Simon was the longest serving and a much loved member of the MHRA’s Medicines Borderline team. He acted as a mentor to many of the newer Classifiers and, as a result of his wealth of knowledge and generous nature, was always on hand to provide guidance or just to chat. In addition to being well liked and respected by colleagues at the MHRA, he was also very well known by colleagues from other government departments, as well as representatives from industry.

He will be missed greatly by his friends and colleagues and our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
