Annual Audit Letters

Annual Audit Letters summarise the key issues arising from the work that our external auditors carried out in respect of the year ended 31 March 2020. It is addressed to the CCG but is also intended to communicate the key findings identified to key external stakeholders and members of the public.

It is the responsibility of the CCG to ensure that proper arrangements are in place for the conduct of its business and that public money is safeguarded and properly accounted for.

It is the responsibility of our external auditors to plan and carry out an audit that meets the requirements of the National Audit Office’s (NAO’s) Code of Audit Practice (the Code). Under the Code, they are required to review and report on:

  1. the financial statements, regularity of income and expenditure and auditable parts of the remuneration and staff report
  2. whether the CCG has made proper arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources.

Our Finances

 

To provide health services for people in the Surrey Heartlands area, we need to make sure that the money we spend as an organisation is in line with our available resources.

We develop budgets and financial reports on the overall performance of the CCG (including the annual accounts) and hospital service contracts, to ensure that every penny spent is best value for money and supports the delivery of high quality services for everyone in Surrey Heartlands.

The latest information on the financial position of the CCG can be found in the Governing Body Papers each month and in our Annual Report and Accounts (published in June each year).

Please note, Surrey Heartlands CCG came into existence on 1st April 2020 following the merger of Guildford and Waverley, Surrey Downs, North West Surrey and East Surrey CCGs.

 

Primary Care Expenditure 

The GP contract agreement requires clinical commissioning groups to report to the Local Medical Committee (LMC) how the primary medical care funding allocations have been spent. Documents listed below contain details of how the money has been spent within Surrey Heartlands.
