For a band 6 I would ask clinical governance issues such as dealing with complaints, untowards incidents and staff competency issues such as actions in the case of concerns with ability.

I would also ask clinical scenarios "what if" that sort of thing.

Think about infection control issues,

Developmental plans - what would you like to see if you are successful, what changes would you make. Have a bit of knowledge about change management theory as well just in case.

Local and national government initiatives are there any specific targets that affect your area, how will you help to achieve them

How could you deal with staff morale issues, motivate, encourage your staff

What type of leader are you, look up clinical leadership and have a read

There must be more, if I think of any I will post again

Good Luck, let us know how you do

Thank you....this is very useful

I have also found this which is quite useful website for preparation for interviews.

Madwife / Silverdragon is there any way this site could be added to the link for student nurses in the UK as it looks like a really good resource site for interview prep

Will have a look and see what I can do :) We are cutting back on stickies but will make it a thread with a link and add it to https://allnurses.com/forums/f124/must-read-uk-nursing-topics-consolidated-stickies-272189.html
