    What do you mean by emotional? As in if you don't mind giving an example?

    I thought preparing a day before interviews would be enough no? I mean there is no point in prep before an answer?

    sadly, most hospitals wanted at least 6 months to a year of pre-reg experience in hospital. I know people who do end up there but they usually have to work for 2 years as a pharmacist before being considered (similar case with GP surgeries, which is another avenue I am interested in). So atm, I am stuck locumming for community but the pay isnt too bad
    Spoiler:
    Show
    £22-25/ hour vs £13 for lloyds, £18 for boots and £19 for sainsbury's
    heck I know a few people who are earning
    Spoiler:
    Show
    £10-14/hour as a community pharmacist
    so I should consider myself lucky
    My fall back plan is hospital bank work for like a year and then band 6?

    To be honest I am not sure, it might seem clichéd depending on the situation. Personally I think I would refrain from it and use the limited characters to sell yourself on experience etc.

    I am sorry if anything happened needing a hospital pharmacist etc, to you and hope you are okay now

    its worth a shot but bear in mind you have to be patient regarding finding bank work (also be prepared to move elsewhere in the country)

    When hospitals receive our application forms do they have a criteria to stick to in order to select for interviews?
    Or does whoever is selecting them just pick it because they like it? 😂😂
    If anyone knows anything help!

    all hospitals (should) have specifications on pharmalife. if you meet certain aspects of the specifications, then that is favourable. certain trusts do a points based scheme where they award you out of 3 points for different questions in the interview (0 bad, 3 best possible), as well as application form and depending on who scores the highest, you will be offered a job provisionally (providing you graduate)

    Like mainly just on the pharmalife application? Surely hospitals could receive a few hundred applicants!? How will they pick 3/4?

    If you don't graduate despite being offered a position by the hospital, can you go there the following year or how does it work?

    it varies from hospital to hospital, those who offer interviews immediately apaprently run a 1st x amount, screen ,then offer interview. larger ones take longer as they screen longer.

    if you dont graduate you have to re-apply. alternatively, ask if it is possible for a deferal
