  1. Planning and provision of healthcare services

    I will look at what the effect of policy and legislation is on the service users on top of how does a service know whether they are following it properly and how does the government know if a policy change or legislation change has had the impact they have expected.

    If they are indeed correctly followed then the results of the procedures are overall very good. I will go through the acts in question one by one and give examples of them in a health and social care setting.

These early practices of medicine were, needless to say, completely untested and largely based the superstitions and assumptions of a small number of historic physicians. Therefore, due to the mystery and absence of understanding surrounding disease, infection, and human anatomy, the potential for diagnosis and treatment was bleak and largely dependent on the patients thoughts on their own health complaints; hence the general consensus at the time 'the patient knew best'.
