Each of the seven local health boards in Wales has met the required standard for accounting and presenting their financial activities for 2011-12.
In the case of four health boards however, their 'break-even' target was only met thanks to additional funding provided by the Welsh Government during the financial year. All four have therefore received additional reports from the Auditor General, highlighting the additional funding received to ensure 'break-even'.
The Auditor General issued unqualified audit opinions on all seven Local Health Boards' (health boards) financial statements for 2011-12, giving each of those statements a clean bill of health in meeting the required standards for accounting for and presenting their financial activities.
The Auditor General also issued a written report on the 2011-12 accounts of each of the four health boards that received additional Welsh Government funding in order to achieve their 'break-even' target for the year. The Auditor General's four reports, published today alongside his audit certificate for each health board, summarise the financial pressures and additional funding received during 2011-12 by each health board and the consequent financial implications for 2012-13.
