The accounts show the results of the Welsh Government, the local health boards, NHS Trusts and various subsidiary companies.
The timetable for the 2020 to 2021 accounts agreed with the Auditor General for Wales is:
- Welsh Government consolidated accounts submitted to Audit Wales: 23 August 2021
- Welsh Government consolidated accounts signed: 25 October 2021 to 29 October 2021
- Welsh Government consolidated accounts laid with the Senedd: 29 October 2021
Staff from Audit Wales and the Welsh Government have been working closely to assess the impact of the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the preparation and audit of the 2020 to 2021 accounts. There are a number of risks that could impact on the revised plan including the availability of staff and the extent to which remote working and auditing are possible for each of the organisations involved in the preparation and audit of the consolidated accounts (including subsidiaries and NHS bodies).
