This Annual Audit Report to the board members of the Health Board sets out the key findings from audit work undertaken between October 2009 and November 2010.
I have issued an unqualified opinion on the Health Board’s Financial Statements, although in doing so I have brought several issues to the attention of officers and the Audit Committee. In giving this unqualified opinion, I concluded that:
- the Health Board’s accounts were properly prepared and materially accurate; and
- the Health Board had an effective internal control environment to reduce the risks of material misstatements to the financial statements although some systems require further management action.
