Application for the role of Medical Receptionist
I would like to apply for the role of Medical Receptionist which I have seen advertised in (which publication/online and when including any job reference).
I have worked in a reception and admin role for over two years and I enjoy the communication that I have with people both over the telephone and face to face. I feel that I have a good telephone manner and that I have had experience of dealing with both good and difficult people.

I have enclosed my CV which details my experiences. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
