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.
