GlaxoSmithKline is one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the world, but it would not have been in this position if the company did not have the right values of being patient focus. Being patient focused has allowed GlaxoSmithKline to be in the position where it is today of providing lifesaving medication to people like Betty. Betty suffers from COPD, but thanks to GlaxoSmithKline’s medication she is able to live a normal life. What motivates me on a daily basis is knowing that I made a difference. Being able to join the GlaxoSmithKline will allow me to be able to join a company that makes a difference in the world.
I believe that I am able to become a valuable member of the NHS because I am hard working, reliable and resourceful. I can bring my leadership to the table to aid any efforts NHS contributes to, and can encourage others to get involved in activities that require outside assistance. It is with this that I show how great a contribution I can make to NHS, and that I posses the qualities of the NHS pillar of service.
One time, the technician and I helped an elderly woman smile by delivering a last minute prescription. Throughout my internship, I have seen many smiles on patients and pharmacists because of the pain alleviating medications and find it fascinating how the medications will make people feel better. I have learned how impacts can be established with knowledge and every little task like delivering medications contributes to the greater whole of patient care. When shadowing pharmacists and having my drug inquires answered, I have realized that medicinal care involves the drug and the patient’s comfort. Thus, I aspire to be a pharmacist working collaboratively with other health professionals to fulfill health care demands and help patients smile one by one with the same dedication as mother. This has fostered my pursuit toward health sciences to further saturate my knowledge and exposure to different health

As the medical field is growing at a very fast pace, one must always remember that the patient always comes first. After all isn’t helping individuals get healthier in their time of sickness the sole purpose of becoming apart of the medical profession?

‘Listening to how patients feel about their care and treatment is one of my personal priorities. Knowing that patients feel safe and are being given the care and attention they need makes me feel that I am doing what I can each shift to improve their care’ (National Quality Board, p72 2015).
operate as a service provider. From this I will be able to gain a greater understanding of patient care. This collaboration between disciplines and the resulting improvement for the patient was identified by Hill (2006). Since I have started working within the NHS over the last year, I have had more opportunities to work with members of different professions both in the NHS and voluntary sector. This experience has helped me develop a better understanding of how patient care is made up of a multitude of smaller parts.
I want to empower my patients to take control over their health; the best way for me to accomplish that is to remain in direct and prolonged contact with the same patients over time as their primary care physician. My own life and my teaching experience equip me with the tools and passion to care for patients over a lifetime through primary care.
My talents and experiences have prepared me to support the Metropolitan State University School of Nursing mission and prepared me for graduate education. I currently work in healthcare as a certified pharmacy technician and work with diverse and underserved population daily. Unfortunately, I can see how communication barriers, access to health care, physical barriers, and monetary barriers can prevent individuals from living up to their full health potential. I have had patients call our pharmacy to tell us they are unable to pick up their medications due to a lack of transportation access and an inability to pay for their medications. I have also had patients who are unable to take their medications regularly also due finances and an inability to read or understand the directions of their medications.

I gave everything that if care and love alone could save life, my aunty would still be alive today. Spending time with my aunty at the hospital bed motivated me to seek for a professional career in healthcare and be part of the amazing team of Doctors, Nurses and other medical staff in their quest to saving lives. The death of my aunty made me resolve not just to be a casual fellow sympathetic to the health challenges of people but to acquire the requisite profession skills needed to save lives. Over the years, I have gained an in-depth knowledge
Thanks Brenda for taking time to read our presentation and providing an input. In regards to your question on what keeps the partners motivated and recognized for their efforts, is prevent long term complications that can arise from and very common among chronic conditions. Since the Obamacare/ affordable care act (ACA), insurance companies cannot bias again those who are suffering from chronic conditions such as hypertension (“Coverage”, n.d). For instance, if the person has insurance they are more likely to go the doctors and get early diagnosis and management rather than not getting diagnosed and going to the emergency department with the end stage kidney failure and going on Hemodialysis. The later will impose greater burden on our country’s

XYZ healthcare organization aims to provide continuum long term care services to patients. This, they aim to do with the utmost dignity, respect, individuality and confidentiality. This cannot be realized without a positive work environment where the staffs are able to deliver good medicine to the patients. For the staffs to feel good about where they work, what they do, and how they do it, they need motivation. One of the principle motivators for the staff is the recognition of money as a critical motivator. This is in line with the provision of long-term care services (Evashwick, 2005). Finally, it is the staff that will play a tremendously huge role in realizing that the long-term care services are actually provided.
GSK is the 2nd largest pharmaceutical firm in the world, and the largest in the UK by sales and profits, it is responsible for 7% of the worlds pharmaceutical market, and has its stocks listed both in UK and US (O 'Rourke, 2002). The origin of the so called blockbuster model, is partly linked with Glaxo (as it was previously known). In the early 80’s, then Glaxo brought to light their first blockbuster drug, Zantac, which was an anti-ulcer drug, which was very similar to the a pre existing drug Tagamet (first ever blockbuster) sold by Smith Kline & French, their completion at the time (MONTALBAN and SAKINÇ, 2011). The introduction of this drug, brought about an increasing sales force in the US, the company soon became dependent on the drug, because it represented a large part of their profit. In 2002, 8 blockbusters of GSK contributed to $14.240 million sales revenue, taking up 53% of its total ethical sales (Froud et al 2006). However, due to the nature of the pharmaceutical industry, the patent began to expire, in other to avoid the patent cliff, Glaxo merged with Wellcome in 1995, which ensured a growing number of sales force, and with Beecham in 2000 (Froud et al., 2006) this merger, boosted the confidence of investors, by growing the business inorganically. For Big Pharma, this block buster model is very profitable, because with the high cost of R&D, the drugs are able to generate ample profit, to cover the sunk costs
