A- Explain your understanding of barriers.

B- Analyse the impact of at least 3- 4 potential barriers from the organisation in case study to provide quality service (analyse each in separate paragraph.) eg-lack of monitoring ,lack of effective leadership…..

Lack of effective leadership: leadership is the combination of all managerial activities .The main purpose of leadership is to integrate all activities of organisation and provide necessary guidelines to perform those activities effectively. Leadership is responsible for maintain staffing level, provide required training and resources. If there is lack of leadership obviously service quality will be low than expected.

The leadership of RHCH failed to ensure required staffing level, as a result permanent staff are feeling stress with long working hours and overload works. Also family members of service uses are not getting information consistently.

Case study eg -Breach of regulation,

4.1: To answer the question:

Ways or methods of monitoring

Following are some common methods of monitoring.

  • Supervision
  • Observation
  • Peer review
  • Feedback
  • Audit
  • Benchmarking
  • Surveys
  • Focus group 
  • Feedback gives an indication, opinion, understanding of the service provided by staff to service users and family members’ which can generate and implement change. This can be internally and externally done either verbal or non-verbal (written).
  • Advantages are that feedback encourage positive behaviour, cost-effective, easily achievable, promotes engagement and boost work performance. It shows compassion, up-to-date information and can benchmark results.
  • Disadvantage is that feedback can be biased and partial rather than impartial. Feedback providers may try to settle scores with the person they are providing feedback for. It can also inculcate a sense of fear of retribution.
