Standing Orders and Financial Instructions

Local Health Boards (LHBs) in Wales are required to agree Standing Orders (SOs) for the regulation of their proceedings and business. They are designed to translate the statutory requirements set out in Local Health Boards (Constitution, Membership, and Procedures) (Wales) Regulations 2009 (S.I. 2009/779 (W.67)) into day to day operating practice, and, together with the adoption of a Scheme of decisions reserved to the Board; a Scheme of delegations to officers and others; and Standing Financial Instructions (SFIs), they provide the regulatory framework for the business conduct of the LHB.

These documents from the key elements upon which the LHB’s governance and accountability framework is developed, are designed to ensure the achievement of the standards of good governance set for the NHS in Wales.
