A ward clerk works in medical facilities as an administrator, securing medical records and providing assistance to patients as needed. The main goal of ward clerks is to optimize the patient experience at the medical facility.
The ward clerk may serve in an administrative role, but they provide ample support to doctors and nurses to ensure they are able to do their job effectively. The ward clerk will take the patient's medical history and enter the pertinent information on their medical charts. In addition, they will take any records that they may receive from the patient's medical team, like X-ray images and lab reports, to update their medical history.
