If a company is able toassess the changes which is important for them to implement it then it will help business concernto achieve greater sustainability and higher profitability as compared to its competitors inmarketplace. In context to health and social care institution like NHS (National Health Services)also adoptsmodificationin the type of services they render to their patients. Additionally thereare numerous key factors which driveschangesin health and social care services like cultural,demographic, technological and many more etc. Therefore in order to understand this concept,PEST and Force Field analysis is being taken into consideration and is being explained brieflybelow (Battilana and Casciaro, 2012)Political factor:This factor refers to those rules, regulation, legislations and code ofconduct which are being enacted by the government of the country. These standard ofgovernment assist institution like NHS to treat their patients with care and dignity by meetingtheir preferences on time as well as by rendering safe and clean environment.People are facingproblem from these institution due to poor quality of services and less workers in the office.Sotaking this concept into consideration government of country has enacted a new Act “Care Act2014” on 15 may 2014. This act describes about significant reform ofsocial carefor older citizenwho fall in the age group of above 60 years. Additionally it consolidates the legal framework by
stating the legal responsibilities and rights for older peoples who deserve special support andcare.. Accordingly London council provides funds for supporting to organisation like NHS sothat these care firms can render better services to its user specially to older people. Thus, it willalso help in rendering better treatment to peoples and to improve their performance level too aswell assist employers of the service sector management to adopt the changes in structure.Economical factors include factors like inflation rate, currency fluctuation, taxes, demandsand supply etc.It is being identified that in order to meet the demand of local community on timeNHS render near about 75% of its budge to primary care trust. Demand of poor older people arenot being given any importance as major portion of money had being given to primaryinstitution, because of which thousand of older people live in care homes of UK and are gettinghighqualityservices(Coleman and et.al., 2012). It has lead to increase in the vulnerable conditions of older peoples.Thus, it put greater emphasis on organisation like NHS to adopt the changes in system and torender better services to people by taking into consideration the demand and preferences ofolder people patients. For instance, if inflation rate of company is increasing then it would createa positive impact on NHS as customers prefers to save money which could be use in some otherpurposes. Aim of NHS is to provide services with minimum cost so to enhance the betterment ofsociety.Social factor: Refer to the behaviour of users, minority ethnics, service providers andmany more. This, it leads in driving change in health and social care service sector like NHS.For example as per NICE guidelines NHS should focuses on the changing behaviours of thepatients who can turn to be dangerous for staff users. Behaviours of patients can be related toalcohol abuse, sex related diseases, smoking and lack of physical exercise etc. So if consumptionof prohibited products is increase then it would also increase the number of patients NHS isseeing. As due to advancement in technology up-gradation it has become easier for everyorganisation like for NHS to store and records data ofpatients.According to care qualitycommission(CQC) NHS has revise its management policies related to health care record in amore accurate manner which result in-taking complete information aboutpatientslike output ofeach ward are recorded and result in fluid intake as well. For instance, if NHS acquired advancedand latest technology then their quality of services to the needy person would increase to acertain level.
