Tamaki Family Health Centre would like to take this opportunity to thank Katrina from Maxwell Health. She has been professional in the way she has met the requirements of placing Temporary Reception Staff in our practice. The temps we have had working for us have been well trained, professional, helpful and have fitted in with staff and practice requirements. We are looking forward to our ongoing relationship with Maxwell Health.

I cannot speak highly enough of the nurse that you have sent to us. She always goes the extra mile and is a pleasure to have.
Patients love her”.

I’ve been using Maxwell Health for temporary Reception staff as well as Nurses for several months, and am very happy with their prompt response and the quality of staff they have been supplying. I can strongly recommend any practice to use Maxwell Health if they need temporary reception or nursing cover.

We have often used Maxwell Health for Practice Nurse locum cover, and have been impressed with the staff supplied. We have recently found it very difficult to cover our Medical Receptionists during periods of sickness and annual leave, so decided we would see if Maxwell Health could help us with locum Medical Receptionists too. We were hesitant at first, due to how differently medical practices work, but Katrina worked with us to ensure we had an experienced Medical Receptionist with Medtech 32 experience able to provide Medical Reception cover. We have used Maxwell Health to provide a Locum Medical Receptionist a few times now, and have been extremely impressed with the quality of the staff supplied. The Locums have been experienced, trustworthy, courteous, familiar with Medtech 32, well presented and have fitted in to our team very well for the time they have been here. We will now continue to try and get locum cover for our Receptionists in future, because the process has been so seamless. Thanks Katrina and the Team from Maxwell Health
