Mr Manning, who has been in the post since May 2013, said it was appropriate that the “next stage” of the organisation’s development should be led by a new chair.

He will step down from the board in May.

HSCIC chief executive Andy Williams said: “Kingsley has brought insight, great experience and energy to his role and he will be missed.

“Kingsley joined shortly after the formation of the HSCIC and so has been critical in shaping the new organisation and ensuring that it is ready to deliver the technology and information that is vital for excellent health and care.”

Mr Manning said: “Over the last three years the HSCIC, since its formation in 2013, has made considerable progress.

“However I believe that it is appropriate that the next phase of the organisation’s development should be led by a new chair.”

An HSCIC spokesman said the recruitment process to find Mr Manning’s replacement is under way.
