The influence can also be the changes in the accident patterns that which might appear that some patients might be treated 4 hour after they arrive at the NHS and also the money that is spent every year and the amount that is lost every year.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is good descriptive essay but it is lacking in depth and research.

The writer needs to research the campaigns that they discuss and give some background information. It would help for the merit work to look at different approaches to health promotion and discuss the application. This would greatly enhance the work.
