Wavelength know how to respond to individual needs. The customer's interest is their core business - a very refreshing and modern experience.

Dr Anita Cornelius

It has been easy for me to be loyal to Wavelength because the service they provide me is always better than other agencies. Thank you for that.

Dr Ian Henderson
General Medicine Physician

I have worked for quite a few agencies in the past and I can honestly say I have never experienced the degree of attention to my desires and needs that I have had from Wavelength. I would unhesitatingly recommend Wavelength as a medical recruitment agency to any colleague looking for a superior service.

Professor Paul Middleton
ED Consultant

I don’t see the need to go with other agencies. I do all my locums through Wavelength and they keep me busy.

Dr Peter Micah
Specialist Renal and General Physician

Wavelength provides a superior service: excellent info about the expectations, on-call, peer and JMO support – there are no surprises they are good at what they do.

Dr Paul Laird
General Medicine & Respiratory Physician

When locums cross paths across the country and talk work, I am often asked which agency I use and I always say Wavelength.
