NHS job interview: common questions

If you've got a health care interview coming up, it's helpful to consider NHS job interview questions and prepare sample answers. However, the questions that you will be asked largely depend on the position that you are applying for and the level that you are entering at. But the good news is that there are a number of questions that may be asked for all NHS jobs. These questions are listed below...

  • Tell us a bit about yourself.
  • Why have you applied for this position?
  • Why do you want to work in this hospital/this Trust?
  • Why did you pursue a career in this field?
  • What do you know about the Trust?
  • What do you know about the NHS?
  • Talk us through your professional career.
  • Talk us through your educational history.
  • Do you have any specialisms?
  • Do you prefer working on your own or as part of a team?
  • What are your greatest strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • What can you bring to this position?
  • Why are you the best candidate for the job?
  • Where do you see your career going?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
  • What do you consider to be excellent patient/client care?
  • How could you make efficiency savings in your role?
  • Do you have any holidays booked?
  • Do you have any questions for us?

As you can see, these commonly asked questions are fairly standard job interview questions - you shouldn't receive any trick questions or overly difficult questions. So just relax, do your research and you'll be fine!
