    Band 6 interviews and presentations you should be thinking along the lines of providing strong clinical leadership to support the unit or ward manager. Look at the Francis report, you should acknowledge this and think about its implications for wider practice.

    What are your organisations core values, most NHS organisations are working in a values based framework, know what this is and reference it in your presentation and interview

    Performance management, think of role model, so setting the example of how a leader should behave. How do you Work with and correct poor performance, informally with support and education and then if that fails thorough a formal process.

    Appraisals are vital to managing performance and there are studies that link poor appraisal compliance in healthcare to mortality rates so have a look at some of that work as well

    Think about the quality indicators so pressure sore prevalence, complaints, infection rates, financial position, ward cleanliness compliance with policy, temporary staffing use, sickness rates these are all things that give you an idea of how the ward is doing.

    It'd give you a base to focus and framework your presentation on

    Hi I wonder if anyone could help me ? I've got an interview for a band 6 next week. I have nearly 30 years of experience as a nurse but have never had the confidence to apply for a band 6. I have to do a 10 minute power point presentation " How does the role of the band 6 clinical sister influence the delivery of excellent patient care ? What qualities would a nurse in this role be required to demonstrate ? It has thrown me,I tend to go blank in interviews and I'm on the verge of pulling out ! I know I can do the job,just not sure I can show it in the interview, It is on the ward I already work on, Thank you in anticipation

    Hi eliana
    It would be useful to know what you feel the main challenges would be, it'll need to be specific to your unit and you personally.

    are there areas of concern, or care that could be improved, how about being accepted as a different role and the learning you'll need to do to achieve what you need to do.

    Personal development and the support you'll need is also worth considering.
