Several days after Health Services Authority security staff were placed on required leave the following statement was just received from the HSA:
The senior management of the Health Services Authority in their routine monitoring of department metrics discovered a number of irregularities. In discussion with the Board and in accordance with the organisation’s Fraud and Corruption Prevention policy, they requested an audit of the security department from the HSA’S Internal Auditor who is currently on secondment to the Government Internal Audit unit.
This review is currently underway and we await a formal report. Until this review is completed, the Board and management will make no further comment.
