Integrated audit committee
The Integrated Audit Committee as an oversight committee is required to review whether there is an effective system of integrated governance, risk management and internal control, across the whole of the Trust's activities (both clinical and non-clinical) that support the achievement of the Trust's objectives.
The Integrated Audit Committee's membership is made up of not less than three Non Executive Directors. Attendees include the Director of Finance, Director of Corporate Affairs, auditors (both internal and external) and the local counter fraud specialist.
The Integrated Audit Committee is required to review the work of other Trust committees/groups, whose work can provide relevant assurance to the Integrated Audit Committee's own scope of work. This particularly includes the committees/groups with the remit for clinical governance and overarching risk management - i.e. the Quality Assurance Committee and the Compliance & Risk Group.
The Integrated Audit Committee reports to the Board.
The Terms of Reference are currently under review and will be added to the website in due course.
