  • There are several different types of organisational structures within the healthcare sector, including:
    • Hierarchical structures – the most common structure with different levels of management, responsibilities and accountabilities (e.g. Care Worker -> Team Leader -> Regional Manager -> Registered Manager)
    • Flat structures, where there is perhaps only one level of management are often used by smaller organisations – this puts more responsibility on individuals that have the opportunity to learn skills in many different areas and often form a close-knit team
    • Agencies and freelancers – work for themselves or an agency and provide professional services for organisations as and when required
    • External organisations/subcontractors – organisations that provide services for other organisations as and when required
    • Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs) – professionals that work together with shared goals that may or may not be part of the same organisation
