Hi I have an interview on Friday for a nhs ward housekeeper could anyone please give me any clues as to what I'll be asked in the interview.
It's over 20 years since my last job interview and I'm so nervous as I've never worked in the NHS before so don't have a clue what to expect.
Any advice would be very much appreciated thanks

Patient confidentiality is important in every role. Ward housekeeper works to keep the environment up to scratch, support the nursing team, communicate with a range of people including very unwell people and frightened and/or angry relations.

Also make sure you've read up about the hospital. I am an NHS manager and I always ask what people know about the hospital or department.

It might be useful to think about infection control as you will likely encounter infections such as MRSA and C Diff etc. Good luck!
