The Public Sector Internal Audit Standards for the NHS enable internal audit to provide an independent and objective consultancy service specifically to support management in improving the organisations risk management, control and governance.
These consulting and advisory services can take a variety of forms, which may include:
In addition to servicing the needs of individual organisations, a significant proportion of consulting and advisory services provided by internal audit will be directed towards expert advice and guidance on national policy developments, major projects, and systems developments for the collective benefit of NHS Wales.
Individual organisations may commission additional consulting and advisory services on a discretionary basis according to local demands and needs. If there is something we can help you with then please make direct contact with your nominated audit lead.
