For posts at Band 8a or above or a Medical graded post, a service user/carer must be part of the interview panel. The Recruiting Manager must contact our Patient and Public Involvement Co-ordinator, to arrange this.

Our Service Users and Carers who take part in interview panels have attended training on how to conduct Values Based Interviews. They have also developed their own Values Based Interviews to ask at interview. These questions are based on what is important to them as Service Users and Carers and form an important part of the interview process.
