Entry can be competitive so always look to really build a strong personal statement. You'll need to demonstrate that you have found out about the role and understand what the work involves. 

Relevant experience in any healthcare setting is useful but if you can gain it in an AHP setting, so much the better. Work experience placements can be difficult to find, so alternatives would be to shadow an AHP or talk to one about their role. 

You’ll be asked to show how you think the NHS values would apply in your everyday work.
