Audit and Risk Committee

The role of Cwm Taf University Health Board’s Audit and Risk Committee is to advise and assure the Board on whether there are effective arrangements in place – through the design and operation of the Health Board system of assurance – to support it in its decision taking and in discharging the accountabilities for securing the achievement of the Health Board objectives in accordance with the standards of good governance determined for the NHS in Wales.

The organisation’s system of internal control has been designed to identify the potential risks that could prevent Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB achieving its aims and objectives. It evaluates the likelihood of the risks being realised, considers the impact should they occur, and seeks to manage them efficiently, effectively and economically. Where appropriate, the Committee will advise the Board and the Accountable Officer on where and how the assurance framework may be strengthened and developed further.
