LO1: EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENT TYPES, SIZE AND SCOPE OF ORGANISATIONS
An organisation is a group of people who work together in an organized way for a shared purpose. A business organisation uses economic resources to make available goods or services to customers in exchange for money or services. Business organisations come in different types and forms of ownership.
TYPES OF ORGANISATIONS
They are majorly public or not for profit organisations, private or for profit organisations and voluntary or non-governmental organisations.The private and public sectors organisations have main objectives of turning in a profit. Whereas the non-profit organisations sought for donations or make profits but do not distribute its profits to shareholders or owners but use the money to meet community service or charity goals.


Public or not for profit Organisations
Public organisations are usually comprised of organisations that are owned and operated by the government and exist to provide services for its citizens and not majorly for profit reasons. The not-for profit or public organisations exist to provide particular set of services to the public and the profits made from such services are further used to develop the economy (Carter McNamara, 2019). These types of organisations therefore do not seek to generate a profit. Examples are majorly different government ministries such as defense, agriculture, infrastructure, health, power and councils. In the UK, examples include the National Health Services (NHS), British Council, British Broadcasting Corporation, British Army, etc.
The National Health Services (NHS) is the publicly funded national healthcare system for England and one of the four National Health Services for each constituent country of the United Kingdom.
NHS is a publicly funded national healthcare system for medical care, without payment except for some specific NHS services, for example eye tests, dental care, prescriptions and aspects of long-term care. The National Health Services is the largest single-payer healthcare system in the world. NHS is primarily funded through the government funding and overseen by the Department of Health and Social Care. The military is under the control of the Government of the United Kingdom; this system is responsible for security of the United Kingdom. Serving as a protection for the citizens and making sure law is abided and peace is maintained in the country. Giving the Citizen a mind-set of safety and restriction against crime.
