Audit Committee

The purpose of our Audit Committee is to: 

  • Advise and assure the Board and the Accountable Officer on whether effective arrangements are in place - through the design and operation of the LHB’s system of assurance - to support them in their decision taking and in discharging their accountabilities for securing the achievement of the LHB’s objectives, in accordance with the standards of good governance determined for the NHS in Wales.

Where appropriate, the Committee will advise the Board and the Accountable Officer on where, and how, its assurance framework may be strengthened and developed further.

The full role of the Committee is detailed in the Terms of Reference (updated Sept 2017) 

A workplan is agreed annually and sets out the Committee's working practices, business standards and work programme including the requirement for a Cycle of Business which is revised regularly.
