Don’t take our word for it,
see what our healthcare employers say about us...

“The biggest "plus" for me in dealing with Wavelength has been in the quality of its people and hence resulting quality of its service. The quality of doctors recruited for me in three Australian states has been, without exception, uniformly excellent. This speaks highly of Wavelengths professional standards and being fully cognisant of client needs.”

Dr Geoffrey Williamson

Rockingham Peel Group

“It is very apparent that they are competent and of the highest calibre. It has been a pleasure interacting with staff that are professional and comprehend our needs fully. The quality of doctors sourced for us has been very pleasing. They have always been fully vetted and the required compliance paperwork done.”

Tim Smart

Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service

“Working with Wavelength has been an absolute pleasure. Senior staff met with us to understand our needs, developed a highly successful strategy and achieved what would be impossible for us to do without their depth of industry knowledge. We were provided with ample applicants to fill our specialist and registrar positions ahead of the agreed time-frame and because it was so easy, have engaged a whole team of RMO's as a bonus. We are now looking forward to being fully staffed with happy, vibrant staff at all levels.”

Garry Wilkes

“Wavelength worked hard and persistently to place an appropriate GP with us. They took the time to discover and understand what both parties required, resulting in a very successful placement. Our new GP is a great fit, it's like she's always been here!”
