Standing Orders - Local Health Boards

LHBs in Wales must agree Standing Orders (SOs) that, together with a set of Standing Financial Instructions (SFIs) and a scheme of decisions reserved to the Board; a scheme of delegations to officers and others; and a range of other framework documents set out the arrangements within which the Board, its Committees, Advisory Groups and NHS staff make decisions and carry out their activities - its 'ways of working'. The Standing Orders should be based upon the model determined by the Welsh Government.

The latest versions of the model documents, together with the list of amendments and cross referencing to legislation and Ministerial Directions are supplied for your information as attachments on this page.
