What Clients Say

I first was introduced to Medcall back in 2005 when a bubbly (then) Shirley Reynolds came bouncing into my office with a basket of goodies (nothing changed there!). For 14 years, I have been involved with Medcall, the comradery that I have built up with Shirley, Claudia and the team has ensured that Medcall understood our care home needs, to place the right Carestaff and Registered Nurses into our Carehome. I have also had the privilege of hiring numerous Medcall staff–having them work with the team and residents was a wonderful opportunity to see how that staff member could fit in with our culture. As we see our bureau staff as part of our team, we offer Medcall staff to attend our site trainings and these have always been taken up e.g. manual handling After 18 years in the Aged Care Sector, I honestly can say the team at Medcall are "People who care”
Sharon Owen - Somervale - Care Manager
Prior to my surgery, I’d decided having registered nurse care post op would help speed up my recovery. Plus safer being shown correct movements rather than hobbling around & potentially at risk to a fall. My first call was to Khali who was friendly, knowledgeable and practical! Plus had a great sense of humour! AND matched my requirements & found a wonderful nurse! Shirley West, the Regional Manager was absolutely fantastic as well - overseeing the process with her professional yet warm & kind approach. Thank you Shirley your Medcall Team Is The Best!

Support from Medcall has exceeded my expectations. With a nation-wide network at hand, Medcall provided me with jobs at various care settings across North and South Islands. I’d never imagined I could broaden my nursing experience to that degree within a year. Its quality support ensured that I could work at my best based on up-to-date information and safety guidelines. Medcall’s caring culture has shone through in every conversation I’ve had with its staff. They knew who they were talking to and focused on the service that would suit me best. I confidently recommend Medcall to motivated nurses who seek to broaden their career horizons while receiving excellent support from super-friendly staff and management.

Andi at Medcall went out of her way to really understand our organisational values and requirements for the role we wished to fill. The team at Medcall were proactive in their approach and very responsive to our needs. They found us a great Manager and continued to check in with both she and I to ensure that the appointment was working as planned. I would use Medcall again if the need arose.
