Jeremy Frank Hallpike was a consultant neurologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, South Australia. Born in London, he was the son of Charles Skinner Hallpike, a pioneering otologist [Munk’s Roll, Vol.VII, p.241]. Educated at Epsom College, he studied medicine at London University and Guy’s Hospital. Qualifying in 1961, he did house jobs at Guy’s for a year, before moving to the Hammersmith, Queen Square and Brompton hospitals.

In 1965 he joined the staff of the National Hospital, Queen Square as a registrar and became senior registrar at St George’s from 1970 to 1972. Returning to the National as a lecturer in 1972, he then moved to Southampton University Medical School as senior lecturer and consultant neurologist, where he stayed from 1973 to 1976. He also spent some time in the 1970s as a research fellow in the pathology department at Guy’s. In 1976 he travelled to Australia and became senior visiting neurologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. The following year he also took up the post of consultant neurologist at the Modbury Hospital, Adlelaide.

Outside medicine, he enjoyed rifle shooting.

In 1972 he married Jane Ainslie née Page, whose father, Frank Ainslie Page, was an engineer and company director. Her great uncle, Sir Earl Page, a medical practitioner, had been Australian minister of health and also, briefly, prime minister. When he died, Jane survived him.
