View planned inspection, regulation and audit activity for health and social care services, and reports of reviews undertaken.
In May 2005 the principal external review bodies inspecting, regulating and auditing health and social care in Wales agreed a set of objectives and practices (A Concordat) to support the improvement of services for patients, service users and carers and to eliminate any unnecessary burdens of external review.
The Concordat, which is a voluntary set agreement between autonomous external review bodies, was published on the 12th May 2005.
The Concordat is available to download through the link below. You may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader (external link) to view these files.
The Wales Audit Office and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales have a close working relationship and a history of positive collaborative working. To help embed and further develop these arrangements we have published a joint operational protocol.
