An interim annual letter was presented to Aneurin Bevan Health Board (the Health Board) in March 2010. That report related to my audit work in the final six month period to 30 September 2009 of the Health Board‟s predecessor bodies.
My work on the audit of accounts has led me to give an unqualified opinion on the financial statements of Aneurin Bevan Health Board.
I have also concluded that:
- the Health Board‟s accounts were properly prepared and materially accurate;
- the Health Board received additional non-recurring funding from the Assembly Government and achieved financial balance at the end of 2009/10;
- the Health Board had an effective internal control environment to reduce the risks of material misstatements to the Financial Statements; and
- the Health Board‟s significant financial and accounting systems were appropriately controlled and operating as intended.
