Joint Report Audit Wales Healthcare Inspectorate Wales


Our 2019 joint report highlighted a number of fundamental weaknesses in the Health Board’s arrangements in respect of leadership, strategic focus and scrutiny of patient safety and risk, management of concerns and complaints, and organisational culture. We were concerned that these weaknesses were compromising the Health Board’s ability to identify and respond to problems with the quality and safety of patient care. Our 2019 report made a total of 14 recommendations for improvement.

Our follow-up review found the Health Board has made significant progress in addressing the concerns and recommendations of our 2019 report. It has a stronger strategic focus on quality and patient safety, and there is greater clarity on roles and responsibilities in relation to quality and patient safety compared to 2019.
