Application for the role of NHS Booking Clerk
I would like to apply for the role of NHS booking clerk which I have seen advertised in (which publication and when).
I have very strong administration and customer service skills and I enjoy working in this environment. I feel that I have good communication skills and to date, I have spent a lot of time talking to customers over the telephone and face to face.
I feel that I am organised and thorough in my work and I pay great attention to detail in everything that I do. I also enjoy working as part of a team and working with other people to ensure that we get the work done.
I understand that this role will involve ensuring patients get the appointments that they need and make follow up appointments as requested. This means spending time working out appropriate appointment times depending on the nature of the appointment.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer anything you want to know related to my skills and experiences.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
