The Department of Health does not have a compliance Unit. In fulfilling the Department's role and function Units within the Department carry out governance and performance oversight to ensure accountable and high quality services.

The Department has an Internal Audit Unit that supports, develops and reviews the internal control environment and corporate governance procedures across all areas of activity for which the Accounting Officer has responsibility.

If the Deputy is seeking particular information then I might suggest he make contact with my office and I will endeavour to provide a response on the matter.
