Appointment of External Auditors

Following changes to the local external audit arrangements in the Local Accountability Act 2014, NHS Trusts and CCGs need to procure and locally appoint their own auditors for 2017/18 and subsequent years.

At its meeting on 18 October 2016 the Governing Body agreed to the appointment of KPMG as its external auditors for a further two years. This decision was taken on the advice of the CCG’s Auditor Panel.
