Holby City executive producer Tony McHale is to leave the long-running BBC1 hospital show after four years at the helm.
McHale, a TV drama veteran who was also one of the key executives on EastEnders, said in an interview earlier this year that he had joined the show to "drag it into the 21st century".
The BBC's controller of drama, John Yorke, said: "It's been a privilege to work with him, and we will all miss his extraordinary passion, vision and determination that Holby should be the best, most ambitious and most exciting show on BBC1."
