good luck hun xx

Well done mama - as I mentioned yesterday they give you scenarios and ask you how you would deal with it. You have to give examples of how you would cope with certain points as raised in the job spec and they also ask your strengths and weaknesses which is what I found the hardest

I have had two interviews in the last 2 months with the NHS so I will add things as I recall them

My heads up my bum at the moment as I am trying to organise my induction and move and arrange a start date and the list goes on lol

When i had an interview for a job at the NHS they asked me a bunch of situation questions..for example they may ask you "If a client suddenly goes into labour how will you react"..things like that :thumbsup:

well done - good to hear some good news for a change!

they're bound to ask you why you want the job and what you can bring to the role.

Good Luck - really hope you get this.

Well done & good luck !!

Prepare yourself for scenario questions. My wife went for a health care assistant interview a few weeks back. and she said the whole interview was based on scenario's. One thing she said that won her some brownie points was to talk about the importance of training on dealing with difficult situations!

oh and good luck as well

best of luck xx
