Of course getting this job helps financially, but it's not just about that... I really feel passionate about getting this job! Is there anyone who does this job, or knows anything about it? Any advice or help would be so greatly appreciated! TIA x
Ok, to clarify, it is an interview to become a phlebotomist - to take on the necessary training. Yes, I do know it is about taking blood. It is, as far as I know at this early stage, both dept and ward based, but I'm sure this will be clarified during the interview. tak1ngchances - sometimes people do get an interview for a job in a dept they don't know anything about, and they are trained 'on the job'! I'm sorry if my initial post came accross as if I'm some kind of moron hoping to get a job with needles! Although it is a specialised role, it is still a role within the healthcare assistant aspect of nursing and there is no prerequisite for this position as can be checked on the NHS website under careers - they state; 'There are no specific minimum requirements to work in phlebotomy, although a good range of GCSEs would be an advantage.' No i haven't yet lougle - I am assuming most tours and introductions will be done during the interview, or subsequent meetings (if I get that far!).
Btw, in future, if you want an NHS or school based job, you should always ask to visit the department before interview to get a feel for the environment and find useful questions to ask. It's much better to seem keen and well informed.
