The audit focused on strategic priorities as well as the significant financial and operational risks facing the health board.
The auditor has concluded 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.
