This report sets out the findings from the Auditor General’s 2019 structured assessment work at Velindre University NHS Trust. As part of the audit, we made a number of audit recommendations to the Health Board which can be found here.
Our overall conclusion from our 2019 structured assessment work is: the Trust continues to strengthen its strategic planning arrangements, but risks and related controls and assurances are not mapped to strategic priorities. Positive progress has been made to redesign the organisational structure to better support transformation and there are effective financial arrangements. However, important gaps remain in clinical audit assurance.
