360 Assurance wins IIA award: Outstanding Team – Public Sector

We are proud to announce that 360 Assurance has been awarded the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Outstanding Team – Public Sector award for 2015.

Our submission for the award highlighted the steps we had taken to introduce clinicians into our Clinical Quality Team and integrate their skills into an internal audit setting.

The awarding panel recognised the need for NHS Audit Committees to assure themselves that the wider control environment within their organisations is operating effectively, which places greater emphasis on assuring clinical quality. The award reflects the contribution our Clinical Quality Team has made by bringing the rigour of risk-based auditing to a wide range of controls which in many cases had not previously been the subject of assurance reviews, leading to recommendations which will improve the quality of care.
