"Bishop Fleming have provided an excellent External Audit service over the last three years to Skills for Health Ltd and its wholly owned subsidiary The National Skills Academy for Health Ltd. In particular I have been impressed by the ability of both very senior staff and the staff working on the Audit to grasp the complexity of our business model and the issues we face within our sector. We work closely with BF to work through matters as they arise, (as opposed to leaving until the official audit) and this works well in ensuring we have a smooth audit process following the closedown period. We have also used BF to support us with our internal audit requirements and again they have undertaken an excellent job, adding real value and management support to the internal control system and finance team."Denise Morris, Executive Director - Skills for Health Limited
