Audit and Assurance provides bilingual internal audit, specialist audit and consultancy services to the whole of the NHS in Wales and was formed on 1 April 2011. Whilst we are an all-Wales service, we maintain a local presence responsive to each health community, linked by a national network and standardised approach to delivering our work. This site provides some information about us, the services we offer, our office locations and contact information.
Every five years all Internal Audit providers must have an independent external quality assessment undertaken to determine if they are conforming to the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards. In March 2023 we had our assessment undertaken by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA). CIPFA concluded that ‘the Audit and Assurance Service FULLY CONFORMS to the requirements of the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards” which is the highest level of conformance possible.
