INTRODUCTIONToday the world is surrounded by the various controllable and non controllable diseaseswhich causes danger to the lives of the people and also effects the social environment of thepeople thus it is the duty of the health organisation to take responsibility of the patients andensure their safety (Archer and et. al., 2011). The organisations like NHS (National HealthService) the most popular and efficient health organisation in UK, is an independent body withvast scope thus it is the duty of the leaders and managers to take responsibility to deal with thewell-known processes, like planning, budgeting, structuring and staffing jobs and measuringperformance and problem-solving, to achieve the required standards and goals i.e the goals toimprove health care facilities and ensure the patients safety (Barry and Edgman-Levitan, 2012). TASK 1Task 1 has been covered in ppt TASK 22.1An interview was being done with colleague, Janet who is having work experience ofsenior social care worker for people who are troubled with problem of dementia. Her roles isconcerned with direct needs for care which are required by the patients. Her duties andresponsibilities consists of giving help to the service user to fulfil his or her day to day needs, tomonitor their needs of health and giving them autonomous life. The aim of this task is to gainunderstanding of the influence of organisational structures in health and social care organisation.Janet has been associated with a social care organisation in UK. From her experiences, it hasbeen determined that there are various types of organisational structures (Thompson Parrott andNussbaum, 2011). Structure of an organisation designs the culture of that organisation whichdetermines management's working style, employee's responsibilities. Structure and culture ofhealth care organisation are related with each other. Non profit organisational structure generallyconsists of two classes of organisation, first one is voluntary organisation and second is socialenterprises. Social enterprise sets their objectives by the government. Their business haveobjectives of maximisation of profits of the stakeholders such as staff and services users. Theyoffer services to services users and enable them to live a standard life.
On the other hand, in voluntary organisations individuals and groups are engaged withtheir own interests and wish to provide their services to the community and society. They operateby taking help of grants provided by the government and charities (Lewin and et. al., 2010).However all the funds are not raised from only these sources. Individual work in suchorganisation due to their own willingness to save lives of people who are in any pain or sufferingor to make their life better and happening. Janet being a senior health and social care workergained experience that communication and leadership play a vital role in handling activities andtasks of social care organisations. Communication is essential in developing team work in healthand social care organisations. They are helpful in creating teams who perform together throughcollaboration of their efforts. If the communication is effective and smooth among the teammembers, then it is helpful in reduction of conflicts and disputes in them which in turn reducesstress (Kahn Yang and Kahn, 2010). Contrary to this, voluntary organisation function on theprinciple of providing services on their own choice by participating and communicating witheach other to collaborate their contributions and to develop deliveries of their services in aneffective manner. 2.2In the health and social care organisation there are various competitive factors in theculture of such organisations. The contradictory requirements of patients, family members,services providers, institutions and regulators form various inconsistencies and mixes themessages. Additionally, issues related to hierarchy in which every role or unit functions self-reliantly with having no understanding of the entire implications of their actions and doings onothers. Many holds a view that culture of blame is dominant in health and social careorganisation. As medicines were mostly seen as the role of single physician or any otherprofessional who is working on a specific patient, when something goes wrong the naturalreaction is to try to identify who was wrong and trying to discipline them. This is called as“shame and blame” approach which results in hiding instead of reporting mistakes (Hutchisonand et. al., 2011). This creates hurdles in the culture of safety in the health and social careorganisation. Some recent contributions are trying to change this culture- to inspire individuals toreport the errors instead of hiding them so that they can be solved. The organisations which haveforward thinking remembers that their prime ground for presence in this sector is to give propercare and attention to the patient and ensure their health and safety.
