The audit work focused on strategic priorities, including governance, as well as the significant financial and operational risks facing the Health Board.
The report concludes that:
- the Health Board’s accounts were properly prepared and materially accurate;
- the Health Board had an effective control environment to reduce the risk of material misstatements to the financial statements; and
- the Health Board’s significant financial and accounting systems were appropriately controlled and operating as intended; although there are some system weaknesses which require management action.
