Interview help for Theatre Support Worker

I have an interview for Theatre Support Worker on Friday at my local hospital. Does anyone have any advice on what they may ask at the interview? This will be a complete change of direction for me so i have no NHS background.

Thanks Zacmaster, do you know if they use competency based interviews these days or the old style of interview.

Had my interview today and they asked me the following questions if this will help anyone else.
1. Tell us about yourself?
2. What was good and bad about your previous job?
3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
4. Why do you want this job, what attracted you to it?
5. How would you deal with someone behaving unreasonably?
6. How would you deal with differing patients emotions?

I was then offered a tour of the theatre areas which is really handy. Hope this can be of help to someone in the future.
Cheers, Snake_eyes.

Hi Clarabel, yes i got the job, which area are you in. I would think that different hospitals have different views on what their support workers can and can't do.
All i can say is that in the hospital i work in the job can be very stressful and you need to be able to learn very quickly. Good luck with your interview anything further just let me know and i'll do my best to answer.
Hi Snake eyes,

Glad to hear you got the job!
The hospital is Whiston Hospital in the St Helens and Knowsley trust, North West England. Which area are you in?
