We are seeking enthusiastic clerical staff to join a small but busy team based in the Health Records Department in Preston.


The successful candidate will be involved in the day to day processing of records that have been sent for archiving, maintaining security and confidentiality at all times and observing all Trust policies relating to the management of Information.


Tracking, retrieving, scanning and culling of records will be a major part of the role, with opportunities in the future to travel around the Trust gaining knowledge and experience of how the wider organisation manages records.


The Trust is moving its patient records to a new Electronic Patient Record and the digitisation of paper records will be key to supporting this. The Health Records Team will play a vital role in supporting those Teams who are transitioning to electronic records.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
