Powys Teaching Health Board – Annual Audit Report 2020
03 June 2021

This report summarises the findings from audit work done at Powys Teaching Health Board to fulfil our responsibilities under the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004.

We concluded that the Health Board’s accounts were properly prepared and materially accurate and issued an unqualified audit opinion on them. Our work did not identify any material weaknesses in the Health Board’s internal controls (as relevant to our audit). However, we placed two Emphasis of Matter paragraphs in our report to draw attention to disclosures in the accounts relating to Clinicians’ pension tax contingent liabilities and the effects of COVID-19 on the estimation of valuations of land and buildings. We brought several additional issues to the attention of officers and the Audit, Risk and Assurance Committee which are set out in our detailed report.
