Application for a Health Records Clerk
I have recently seen your advert for a Health Records Clerk and I would like to submit my CV for this role.
In my previous roles I have always been responsible for maintaining accurate records including names, addresses, telephone numbers, all contact information and details on a person. I understand how important it is to ensure this information is up to date at all times so that no mistakes are made with wrong information.
Because of my previous roles and the information I have been party to I have a very confidential nature and do not disclose any information to colleagues or anyone outside of the business.
I am a very accurate and organised person; I thrive on getting things right first time and have in the past created systems so that I ensure that everything is filed correctly so that anyone is able to find what they are looking for in case the person who filed it is out of the business.
I have had a hands on role for many years and dealing with customers and clients face to face and over the telephone and email and feel that I am an approachable person.
If you would like to know any further information about my skill set, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application.
