The NHS values

Whether you’ve always wanted to work in health or have never thought about it before, the huge range of careers in the NHS will amaze you! There are clinical and non-clinical careers available. You could work on the front line on a ward or never see a patient and still make a difference to people’s lives.  From the person who manages the finances to the clerk who books in an operation, everyone working in the NHS contributes to vital services.

So what are the values? There are six values that all staff – everyone from porters, physiotherapists, nurses, paramedics and gardeners to secretaries, consultants, healthcare scientists and phlebotomists – are expected to demonstrate:

working together for patients. Patients come first in everything we do

respect and dignity. We value every person – whether patient, their families or carers, or staff – as an individual, respect their aspirations and commitments in life, and seek to understand their priorities, needs, abilities and limits

commitment to quality of care. We earn the trust placed in us by insisting on quality and striving to get the basics of quality of care – safety, effectiveness and patient experience right every time

compassion. We ensure that compassion is central to the care we provide and respond with humanity and kindness to each person’s pain, distress, anxiety or need

improving lives. We strive to improve health and wellbeing and people’s experiences of the NHS

everyone counts. We maximise our resources for the benefit of the whole community, and make sure nobody is excluded, discriminated against or left behind.

The Application Process

The application and interview process for a role within the NHS may be different from what you’ve experienced in the past.  Its really important to highlight all of your skills, even if not work experience, but any sporting, childcare or youth group involvement – its all great experience that needs to be included in your application and personal statement.

 

Application forms

Make sure you:

follow the instructions carefully

provide all the information the questions ask for

give specific examples of things you have done, particularly if you are asked to show how you meet the selection criteria; your application is likely to be scored according to how closely you meet the selection criteria.

take the opportunity to show your understanding of the NHS values or the values of the organisation you are applying to and how you would apply them in your everyday work

work within any white space available for each section and don’t miss any sections out

make a practice copy first that you’re happy with before you complete the actual application form, either on line or hard copy

Finally, most forms give you the opportunity to say something about yourself and why you’re applying so use this wisely. The thinking you’ve done in terms of your career planning so far can help you complete this section.

 

Interviews

An interview is your chance to give a good account of yourself!

Preparation is key and you will increase your chances if you:

check out in advance where the interview will be held, work out how to get there and arrive with plenty of time to spare. Remember that hospitals and universities can be large and busy places: you need to know exactly where you need to be for your interview

remember the interview panel is on your side. You have been invited to the interview because they liked your application form and want to know more about you

listen carefully to the questions they ask, and answer them as clearly as you can

be prepared to demonstrate your understanding of the NHS values or values of the employing organisation and how you would apply them in your everyday work

don’t rush. Think about your answers. If there’s something in the question you don’t understand, ask for clarification

think in advance about any questions you might have for the panel and take the opportunity to ask them at the end
