A number of potential successors have been mooted to replace Sir Stevens including Chief Operating Officer of NHS England and NHS Improvement, Amanda Pritchard, and Chief Executive of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Sir Jim Mackey, who has previously spent two years running NHS Improvement.
NHS England chief Sir Simon Stevens is to stand down as chief executive at the end of July.
He had meant to leave earlier but agreed to stay on through the winter.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sir Simon had "led the NHS with great distinction for the past seven years".
"I want to thank him personally for his service to the NHS in England, and I wish him all the best for the future including his new role in the House of Lords".
Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, said Sir Simon had been "a steadfast and sage leader for our National Health Service, and that has been especially true during this most testing period in NHS history".
Birmingham-born Sir Simon first joined the NHS in 1988 after studying at Balliol College, Oxford University, starting his career at Shotley Bridge General Hospital, near Consett, County Durham, as a trainee manager.
He was knighted in 2020 for services to health and the NHS, and will now join the House of Lords.
Sir Simon had planned on leaving the position earlier, but agreed to continue last winter.
No official decision on a replacement has been made, and would be formally made by NHS England's board.
Sir Simon told staff: "Having agreed a year ago to stay on to see us through the pandemic pressures, now seems like a good time to hand on the baton".
And former health secretary Jeremy Hunt, chairman of the health and social care committee, said he should feel "extremely proud" of his role in the NHS response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
