Inside CVS Health, there are many stakeholders that come into play and are effected by the new change. The employees, customers and clients, suppliers and venders, investors, and local communities, are the stakeholders that are involved with and are close to CVS Health. CVS Health believes that staying close and involving their stakeholders to their CSR strategy, will help them be successful.

This essay seeks to discuss the factors that facilitate change in health and social care. This can be achieved by assessing the challenges that the major factors of change bring using the Care Quality Commission of the Quality Care Commission for the Royal United Hospital Bath NHS Trust (RUHB). The second task aims to evaluate contemporary changes being inaugurated in the provision of health and social care services. In addition to this, a strategy and criteria will be devised in order to measure these recent changes including how the impact of these changes can be measured and evaluated.
