LOCSU Chair and Chief Executive announce departure

Mike Fegan, the Chair of LOCSU, and Richard Whittington, its Chief Executive, have announced their plans to leave the organisation.

Mike, who was appointed for a three-year term in 2018, will be retiring this year. He said it had “been a great privilege to Chair the Board of LOCSU on behalf of LOCs and the optical bodies. Now that pressure from the pandemic is abating, it is appropriate to pass the Chairmanship on, and for me to retire.”

Richard announced he will be leaving LOCSU to join NHS England as the Head of Speciality Pathways Redesign. He said: “I have really enjoyed my time at LOCSU and working with LOCs across the country”. He wanted “to thank everybody who I have worked with, and been supported by, over the last five years and wish the LOCs and LOCSU well for what I am confident will be a bright future”.

LOCSU confirmed that the recruitment process for a new LOCSU Chair is already underway and that the recruitment for the next CEO would be announced soon.
