Healthcare is important to the society because people get ill, accidents and emergencies do arise and the hospitals are needed to diagnose, treat and manage different types of ailments and diseases.
Many of people’s aspirations and desires cannot be met without longer, healthier, happy lives.
The cultural differences and way of life of people have a great impact on the way they assess their health and well-being as well as their attitude towards healthcare.
It affects their attitude and understanding of the cause of an illness and how to manage them as well as the consequences of medication and medical treatments.
I would also assess and evaluate the impact that culture and the society has on healthcare as well as the people’s attitude towards healthcare.
The role of public health and health promotion in the provision of healthcare services can not be over emphasized.
However, people can still go to private hospitals if they wish to but they have to pay for the medical services they receive by themselves or by their health insurer.
For religious reasons people also have different beliefs and how they perceive healthcare delivery and sometimes how they react to medical practitioners.
Using the PEST analysis, I will be assessing how several factors have influenced people’s attitude towards healthcare in England.
Political factors: a new government with new agenda and mission to fulfil their manifestos pass new laws about health and health reforms.
