Re: NHS matching salary and A/L

But that bit about annual leave doesn't say the thing about breaks in continuous service? Only the sickness absence bit does?

However, I will certainly check it out properly, thanks for letting me know BC!

Re: NHS matching salary and A/L

Annual leave is cumulative and not dependent on continuous service, so you'd be fine there. Salary matching is dependent on line manager's discretion within trust policy, so need to check that out. You'd probably reset your sick leave allowance with a break in nhs service, and things like mat leave...

Re: Shocking true confessions - My Selection Hell

Inventing that algorithm/automatic screening probably wouldn't be as difficult as persuading trusts to take it on.

Re: NHS application - What am I doing wrong

Good to hear you've been proofreading and tailoring it to the specific job (you'd be surprised how many people don't think of that). Do you mention in your applications that you're hoping to go into CP? That may potentially put people off considering you, as it can look like you'll just leave after ...

Re: Content of different Doctorate courses

It's a good idea, as courses do differ in many different ways. I would recommend the Alternative Handbook for that kind of information. Also, courses change their content from time to time, and so the Alternative Handbook can give a more up to date account as it is remade every year.

Re: What are your values?

Considering some trusts recruit using value-based recruitment processes, they might actually be looking to see if your values are compatible with the trust's, not just wanting to see if you are reflective. Unless reflective is on their list. Chances are though that at least some of your values with ...

Re: Oxford based participants needed for study on cognitive flexibility and wellbeing

Do the participants need to be Oxford based, or just able to come to Oxford once? I ask because there's probably lots of people who commute into Oxford but don't live there, but would be able to participate. Just mentioning Oxford in your thread title may limit the number of people who look at it.

Re: What to do if asked about an unfamiliar issue or diagnos

It's tricky, cos the question isn't 'what would you do', but 'what models would you use'. I'd then be tempted to talk about the broad cognitive model (hot cross bun etc) perhaps. Or maybe apply a psychodynamic model (specifically Milan's triangles) and talk about the hidden feelings, anxiety, and de...

Re: What to do if asked about an unfamiliar issue or diagnos

Good advice from above. Yep, go in with the mantra of 'assessment, formulation, intervention, evaluation'... Those things don't need specific diagnosis knowledge, and actually allow you to move past the diagnosis. My general advice would be to look past the question and whether or not you know the '...

Re: Interview structure

If I was confronted with a question about a diagnosis that I didn't know anything about, I might hypothesise how the person might experience it, and then talk about models I could use around that. For example, if it was a diagnosis that is life long, I might talk about models of acceptance. Or if it...

Re: Things to take to a doctorate interview

They should tell you what you need to take. You may need to bring ID documents, so make sure you know where they are perhaps? But don't worry (easier said than done), they will let you know. Might be helpful to have a bottle of water in your bag to sip while waiting, but they will likely provide wat...

Re: Interview structure

I have been to Doctorate interviews in the past and questions were all based on vignettes on each of those areas and no personal questions such as strengths and weaknesses etc. (I would elaborate but I know this website has rules about sharing interview processes.) Ah, thank you for the correction....

Re: Interview structure

I very much doubt the whole interview will be about vignettes. I am sure there will also be interview questions.

Re: Deferring place due to pregnancy? Can anyone help?!

That is helpful to know that a job offer (which is what a training place is, it really helps to remember that at all stages of the thing) can't be taken back due to pregnancy, and that you don't need a contract in place first. Hopefully that will help the OP feel more confident in approaching the co...
