Introduction

REPORT Title: Communication within the work place Terms of Reference: This report is based on Blythwood Veterinary Group and is part of my G.C.S.E coursework. This Project was set-up by Mrs Valentine. Aims: * To find out how Blythwood Veterinary Group communicates with customers, suppliers and staff. * To find out what kind of communication is used within the work place. * To find out what forms of information are used e.g. Textbooks. * Compare time taken using the various methods and communication available to Blythwood Veterinary Group customers. What is communication? To answer this question I had to use the following textbooks, visit Blythwood's website, and carried out a questionnaire. These are the textbooks and websites I looked at. * Title : Edexcel G.C.S.E Business and communication systems Author : Sue Alpin, Jan Cooper, Fionia Petrucker, Jed O'Hara * Title : GCSE Business Studies The Revision Guide Author : CGP Books * Website : www.blythwood.com Communication is the passing of information between two people. ...read more.

Conclusion

See graph on page 6 Conclusion based on the analysis of my research When working at Blythwood Veterinary Group I saw that to keep the business running efficiently communication was very important between customers, staff and suppliers. Whilst working at Blythwood Veterinary Group there was a communication problem due to the computer system breaking down. The Blythwood Group in Bushey could not access patients' records/appointments. This was a serious breakdown in communications. The Bushey Group had to contact the Stanmore practice to find out this vital information. I found it easy to communicate with customers because everyone was polite. Recommendation My recommendation to Blythwood Veterinary Group would be to install a backup system or a stand alone computer that would hold patients' records and appointment for the day, so that if the computer systems failed again, they would have a copy of patients' records/appointments at the Bushey surgery and thereby not having to waste time contacting other surgeries in the Group.
