Healthcare Locums appoints another interim CFO

Bill Jessop takes over from current interim CFO Colin Whipp

TROUBLED health business Healthcare Locums has appointed a new interim chief financial officer.

Bill Jessop, who was most recently CFO at Ricardo PLC, has worked in the UK healthcare recruitment sector as non executive director of Blue Group for five years before it was acquired by HCL in 2006.

Current interim chief financial officer Colin Whipp has stepped down from the role. Whipp oversaw the “successful stabilisation and recapitalisation” of the company, a statement said.

Whipp took over from Diane Jervis, who resigned following a suspension. Jervis and vice-chairman Kate Bleasdale were suspended earlier this year, after the company uncovered accounting irregularities.

The company has also announced the appointment of Mark Andrews to the board as a non-executive director. Andrews was a partner specialising in restructuring at law firm SNR Denton UK. He is also a council member of the Association of Business Recovery Professionals.

Healthcare Locums is currently in the process of appointing a permanent CFO, it has announced.
