The NHS Confederation has also revealed that he will not be applying for the role of NHS England chief executive. 
Farrar will not receive any form of severance payment. 
He said: “It has been an enormous privilege to work in the NHS for more than two decades. I have had the opportunity to lead work at the NHS Confederation, in the North West and nationally in the Department of Health.
"The real sense of career satisfaction is to have been able to shape and see real improvements in patient care, delivered according to need and never ability to pay.
"I am looking forward to creating a range of new opportunities to improve health care provision in the future in the UK and overseas and delighted that I will be able to continue with some major NHS Confederation projects."
