For example if you ten thousand tins of beans its cheaper than buying one tin of beans per unit therefore the more you buy the cheaper they get their products. -Tesco also have strong senior management which helps the store because their management of the store is strong so they can manage Tesco a lot more efficiently and the staff in it, their senior staff is also useful because they will always know how to manage the store because they do it well, They make great recommendations, decisions for Tesco as they are one of the best supermarkets in the UK and couldn?t be that without the senior management team. -Tesco are hypermarkets which are big hyper stores which mean you can buy big bulks at lower prices at their warehouses; they have the widest range of products to offer for their customers all over the UK, These are cheaper alternatives to customers who need more at cheaper prices which makes them strong because they will make more money and they are the only supermarket with a strong hypermarket portfolio. ...read more.

The waiting time for an ambulance is a threat because if the ambulance gets to the location after a long period of time the person could be seriously injured or even dead, the ambulance waiting times need to decrease because if someone is in a severe condition they will need the ambulance straight away, because they could worse. The physicians are a threat in the NHS because they are impatient, and their level of care is low, which will put patients of the service, and they will go somewhere else or complain, the physician?s need to care more about their patients and try to be more helpful to them, because they patients will get unhappy with their service and complain which will make the NHS look bad. The selection of NHS dentists is a threat because they?re might not be enough dentists in a area to support all the people living in the area which could be a threat because the waiting times will go up and patients could get impatient, They?re need to be more dentists so the NHS can decrease waiting time which affects the patients because they could get impatient waiting in for a dentist for hours. ...read more.
