People may think of service as being in a war or being part of our government. While these are very high positions of service there are also many small ways service can make an impact. Some of the service activities I have been included in are: Singing at a senior center, participating in Girl Scouts, adopting and caring for a humane society dog, donating clothes or toys to goodwill, and biking/walking places to save gas. Service is very important to me because it really helps me visualize the difference you can make by doing several small acts of kindness.
Perhaps the most rewarding of the four pillars is service because of the effect it can have on communities. Service is the act of doing work for someone or for a certain cause, but also doing this solely for the benefit of the people around you. I feel that I can benefit the NHS organization because of my willingness to help others. In the past, I have gone on a missions trip for my church which involved helping to rebuild the homes and churches in the inner-city of Cincinnati and taking part in the effort to bring joy to the youth of that community. This work helped many underprivileged people in their
NHS is an organization made up of students who regularly demonstrate the four pillars of NHS: Character, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service. Saydel’s chapter of NHS should model outstanding service and leadership within our school and community. Doing so will create a positive environment amongst our community members and students. Utilizing my strong leadership abilities, I believe I can help our chapter of NHS flourish. My strength in organization, self-determination, and ability to engage others will make me a great asset to our NHS
This simple image depicts the direction not only the NHS is heading, but the entire world. This direction is toward a more technologically advanced future, with increased efficiency and reliability throughout. The NHS is one of the largest organisations in the UK and boasts the highest employment rate of people within the IT sector. This leads to the question of what these IT personnel are doing and what technology they are bringing to the NHS to improve productivity. It is evident through campaigns such as the one in the previous image that the NHS is attempting to modernise alongside technology but what technology is truly used isn’t largely public knowledge, this is where this report attempts to bridge the gap, allowing the public greater knowledge to the inner workings of the NHS. This report also allows for the NHS to understand what technologies are working well within the organisation alongside those which aren’t working so well, so they are able to work with this for future improvements.
The NHS is a system that allows UK citizens to have free healthcare, to the point of use. However, immigrants and refugees, who have received diseases from their own country, come and abuse the NHS. The thing is, the NHS don't check any files and, even if you have just arrived in the UK, you will always be the subject of free healthcare. Consequently, the NHS suffers as a result of this. It is something that, along with many other things, needs to be fixed.
My definition of service is a beneficial act performed for someone in need. Examples of service include volunteer work and doing small things for other people when the opportunity arises. It is important for a person to help their community once in a while, because a lot of people are very entitled. I find this present in the majority of people in our society, in my peers and those older than me. I am not exempt from this sense of entitlement, which most likely comes from that fact that we all live comfortably in the middle class of a first world country, which most people would consider not to be in a major war at the moment. It is crucial for people to do things that they don’t really want to for the benefit of others once in a while. For my NJHS service hours, I will be volunteering with SNAP (students need an after party). I helped with the color run, and will be helping make decorations for the SNAP annual after party, which takes place after prom. My family also plans to participate in the USPS (United States Postal Service)’s Operation Santa, which where people adopt letters from needy kids, and then send them a
Striving to push myself, and work hard in ways that will benefit others is a key principle in my life. Due to this, I am thrilled to be applying for Rocky Mountain’s National Honor Society. In full disclosure, the prestige and scholarship opportunities greatly attract me to NHS. However, there
To me “Not To be served, but to serve” means to put others needs before your own. Service seems to almost be necessary once someone appreciates all that has been done for them. In my case, I have already begun to give back to community which has already given me so much to me. Three years ago I joined a club called the Jr. Civitans. Junior Civitan is a student-led service organization for middle and high school students. The club has a special focus on helping people with developmental disabilities. Throughout the year, we do multiple fundraisers that benefit the special education students at my high school. Some of these events include a Haunted Forest, a Spaghetti Dinner, and a Prom Dress fashion show. The club really emphasizes the focus
The NHS itself originally came around in the year 1948 and was launched by Aneurin Bevan. It was all based on 3 principles which were; firstly to provide hospital services, secondly to provide primary care; family doctor services and finally community services such as maternity and child welfare clinics, health visitors, midwives, health education, vaccinations, immunisations and ambulance services. (Beryl Stretch, 2007)
Introduction The publicly funded National Health Service (NHS) is riddled with several challenges of the 21st century such as increasing population, changing health care needs, and financial crisis all of which threaten its sustainability. This raises a debate on whether to privatise the health care system or to find other solutions for mitigating its two leading problems: high debt and high deficit. Despite the claims that privatisation will improve efficiency and cut the cost of expenditure, privatisation may lead to less accountability, a focus on profit, and the erosion of NHS’s core principal of accessible health care. There is evidence that private funding initiative (PFI) of some NHS trusts has led to an increase in debt and not recovery.
I currently possess the NHS values of scholarship, leadership, service, and character and want to become a member because of influential people I look up to, tragic events, and motivation for success. First, I have lived with a supportive family who gives me advice and shows me that there are endless possibilities to my future. They have gone to college and been very successful due to their efforts in work and school. Additionally, my piano teacher has given me patience while I learn new pieces and perform. Second, my sister was bullied and abused last year, and finding ways to support and understand her helps me be more compassionate for others struggling with difficult things. She has always been my best friend even though we are sisters,
Being in NHS would give me a variety of opportunities for leadership and community service. Whenever I join a new activity, I always search for ways to lead my other club members. I have close to one hundred service hours, made the A honor roll three semesters in a row,
3.0 Reasons for basing entitlement on age and lifestyle: 3.1 Cost Lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking alcohol, poor diet and lack of physical exercise have many diseases associated with them. In 2006-07, patients with these diseases cost the NHS a combined total of £18.4bn (Scarborough et al. 2011). If the NHS limited treatment to these groups of people, it would be able to invest this money into other areas of need. This could lead to improved facilities for people who become ill through no fault of their own.
The National Health Service (NHS) is a state run entity set up by the Labour government after 1948 as part of the welfare state. It was originally run by local authorities with funding from public money allocated by central government. Though in recent years this money has been moving to the private sector and many have speculated that this is privatisation by stealth. In this essay I will attempt to understand this process by giving some historical context to the events of the last few decades while pointing out some of the advantages and disadvantages, and the forms it could take, of privatisation. In conclusion I hope to point to a future where the NHS can exist with public money and private management.
NHS 1. The NHS is one of the best health services in the world however due to the service being free for anyone in the UK to use this takes up a lot of resources, which costs the government millions a year. The reason why some types of services/medicines the NHS can’t provide is because they are either too expensive or they are in short supply therefore you would have to look elsewhere beyond the UK. As shown in the online article from the independent where one life saving drug has had its price shoot up over 5,000 per cent. (Independent) This outrageous price increase would make it nearly impossible for the NHS to keep being as it is already being run on a budget.
