Kingsley Manning to step down as HSCIC chair

5 February 2016: In May Kingsley Manning will be stepping down as Chair of the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

Kingsley has held this role for three years and the organisation has today expressed its thanks to him for the clear leadership and wise counsel he has provided during this time.

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."

Kingsley 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.

"The progress that the HSCIC has made - in successfully delivering national technology services and programmes,  in providing leadership in information governance and cyber security and in continuing to publish robust and independent statistics - is a testament to the skills of our staff and the strength of our management team.  It has been a great pleasure to be part of that team and to work with my fellow directors on the HSCIC board."
