East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership Board


The East Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership Board is a legal entity in its own right created by Parliamentary Order, following ministerial approval of the Integration Scheme.  It is accountable for the stewardship of public funds and is expected to operate under public sector best practice governance arrangements, proportionate to its transactions and responsibilities.  Stewardship is a major function of management and, therefore, a responsibility placed upon the appointed members and officers of the Partnership Board.

The Health & Social Care Partnership Board positively promotes the principles of sound corporate governance within all areas of its affairs. Its Audit Committee is an essential component of the governance of the Health & Social Care Partnership Board detailed within its Financial Regulations.

The East Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership Board has established this Performance, Audit & Risk Committee as a Committee of the Partnership Board to support it in its responsibilities for issues of risk, control and governance and associated assurance through a process of constructive challenge. The terms of Reference for the Audit Committee reflect the span of responsibilities of the Partnership Board and requirements of its approved Financial Regulations, i.e.:

  • The Strategic Plan.
  • Financial plan underpinning the Strategic Plan.
  • The operational delivery of those integrated services delegated to the Partnership Board (except for NHS acute hospital services).
  • Relevant issues raised by the internal auditors of the Health Board, Council and the Partnership Board.’

Dates to be created thereafter to hold the papers for specific meetings. These papers relate to the 21st September 2018.
