    Why did you choose Charring cross? Why hospital? Why pharmacy?
    Do you have any outside interests? What will you contribute to pharmacy team? What are your own strengths and weaknesses?

    They will also be looking to see if you a confident , a good communicator and show aproriate body language. So I suggest practising with a fiend.

    I think most of the London hospitals give you a little exercise but should not worry about it too much as its probably also a lot about being willing to look things up if you don't know.

    Mostly they are looking to see that you will fit into the current set up. Lots of threads of the forum about interviews you could do a search.


    Best of luck

        I guess so. You never know when having a fiend as a friend/sibling will come in useful

          Hey

          Well done on getting the interview!

          Charing Cross is a good hospital – big and busy.

          You must sell yourself well for the interview

          I’m just adding few more things to what Paul has already said:

          1. Prepare answers for ‘why this hospital?’ ‘What can you offer’? Be prepared to discuss your work experience to date and what you have learnt from it.
          2. What do you want to do after qualifying? They offer the Residency
          3. How would you monitor for? ( digoxin, gentamicin, vancomycin, phenytoin etc)
          4. Can you go through this drug chart with me? What would you look for? (look at PJonline –Clinical Accuracy Checking’
          5. Current developments in hospital pharmacy?
          6. CPD? Explain it, give example etc
          7. How will you manage your workload as a pre-reg alongside study days/audits etc?
          8. Risk minimisation on the wards, dispensary and medicines information? (i.e drug histories need to be done, storage of meds on the ward, using patients own drugs)
          9. Outside Interests? Show them you can fit in

          All the best
          Lazy Lady...

            I tried summoning a fiend once. All i got was some lousy wizard who couldn't spell his name right on his pointy hat...
