decorativeAn Internal audit is a robust approach to an external review of clinical areas for health services. The key people involved includes the independent accredited internal auditor, chosen by the health service and an appropriate independent clinical expert.

The report from the audit provides the board and management with usable objective information regarding the control of key risks, areas of focus and opportunities for improvement.

These set of resources and tools have been created to support your internal audit of clinical areas.
