29 April 2022

This report sets out the findings from phase two of the Auditor General’s 2021 structured assessment work at Swansea Bay University Health Board.

Overall, we found that the Health Board has generally effective Board and committee arrangements, is committed to high quality services and staff wellbeing, and has well-developed plans which are routinely monitored. While, the Health Board continues to face significant financial challenges, it has maintained effective financial controls and reporting, and is working hard to achieve financial recovery. However, changes to the Executive team need to embed, operational arrangements for risk and quality governance need to be strengthened and there are opportunities to improve information for scrutiny and assurance.
