Aneurin Bevan University Health Board - Structured Assessment 2020
17 November 2020

This report sets out the findings from the Auditor General’s 2020 structured assessment work at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (the Health Board). The work has been undertaken to help discharge the Auditor General’s statutory requirement, under section 61 of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2014, to be satisfied that NHS bodies have made proper arrangements to secure economy, efficiency and effectiveness in their use of resources.

Overall, we found that the Health Board maintained good governance quickly adapting its governance arrangements to respond to the challenges of the pandemic. Financial management remains robust but ongoing COVID-19 costs risk financial deficit. Quarterly plans set out the safe restart of planned services and resources required, although reporting of delivery is not yet established.
