Detail of outcome
Department of Health response to the consultation on the draft 2017-18 Group Accounting Manual.
The Department of Health Group Accounting Manual (GAM) is based on the 2017 to 2018 Treasury Financial Reporting Manual, adapted for the NHS. It includes mandatory accounting guidance for all DH group and NHS bodies on completing their statutory annual report and accounts.
The GAM is applicable to all organisations within the DH group for the purpose of preparing annual accounts. However, for annual reporting purposes only, NHS foundation trusts will follow the separate Annual Reporting Manual published by NHS Improvement.
We are consulting on the content of the 2017 to 2018 GAM. Full details are explained in the consultation document.
