From my first email enquiring about moving to NZ to the last email checking I was settling in, the service provided by Emma and Kirsty has been incredible. I honestly have no idea how much paperwork was involved because it was all done for me. Whenever I had a question they had the answer and always replied promptly. On top of this there was an ongoing global pandemic and the extra help given about the managed isolation process was invaluable. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about the whole process and couldn’t think of doing the relocation without them.

Emma and Kirsty have been fantastic in organising my move to New Zealand. Let’s face it, there is loads of admin required to move and work abroad, especially in medicine. It’s been really helpful having Transition medical find me a job that fits my requirements, and guide me through all the steps involved to make it a reality.  Access to a specialist visa advisor meant I didn’t have to fill all those forms out.

Since being here, I know other doctors new to New Zealand had to do this themselves.  It has given me peace of mind to know that there is a team who know the complete process, so I could concentrate on other things instead.  Emma and Kirsty have always been quick to respond to emails and calls, with a friendly disposition.  Contacts with transition medical feel personal rather than interacting with some of the larger companies. I highly recommend their service.

Take a look at my new home!

I honestly cannot thank Emma and Kirsty at Transition enough for all their hard work and support. From the initial conversation to discuss my options and potential jobs, to facilitating zoom meetings with my potential employer and supporting me in making the right decision for me. They were so thorough at every step and handled ALL the paperwork for me taking that burden off my shoulders. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without them, there were so many hoops to jump through but Transition made it seamless.

With the pandemic we had a very tough time getting over here, it was emotionally draining, Emma and Kirsty were there at every step to support us through it all and finally get us over here, I would highly recommend Transition medical to anyone looking to relocate to Australia, they are just wonderful.

I only have positive feedback for you and Transition Medical. Kirsty, Emma  and the organisation have been amazing every step of the process. They  helped me out with this huge amount of paperwork which made everything a lot easier!

Moving to the other side of the world seemed quite daunting at first but with the guidance I received from Emma and Kirsty, the whole process was made incredibly smooth despite the multiple hurdles along the way. I recommend transition medical every day of the week and twice on a Sunday!

Thank you so much for facilitating our move to New Zealand; especially given the task of finding 2 GP placements. The whole process with transition medical was smooth from beginning to end and we felt there was a very personal approach to finding the right practice for us, with no pressure. Would 100% recommend Emma, Kirsty and the team to anyone looking to relocate (in fact, we are already telling our friends)

Transition Medical helped me to find a job in New Zealand. From start to finish, the service has been excellent and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to relocate.

Dr Anna, NZ, January 2021

I just want to thank you again so much for all of your hard work getting me from that first step of contemplating working in NZ to now actually being here. You have been incredibly supportive and on my side throughout, which made this journey smooth sailing even though it is on the other side of the world and a big decision, you helped to make it a much easier decision. I feel lucky to be here, NZ is beautiful and have only seen a tip, and I can only hope this feeling will last forever

I would like to commend the team at Transition Medical for providing a highly personalised and friendly service, which enabled me to find the perfect match for my requirements.  Transition Medical is the safe pair of hands you need, to prepare for what is perhaps one of the biggest moves of your life, and I would strongly recommend them

Dr Gulshan, NZ

You guys were the best! You responded so quickly always, were always available when I called and came up with great ideas without me asking (work to residence visa)  Thanks Emma, Kirsty and the whole team.

Dr Lex, NZ


Thank you so much for all your help getting me to Oz. You guys were phenomenal and I would not be here living the dream without you. We are settling well and even all had swim after work and school yesterday for sunset. When do we do that at home? Thanks again!

I contacted the Transition Medical team when looking to relocate to Australia as a GP. The staff are amazing to say the least. They made the daunting process much easier and were highly efficient and very professional.

They found me a job that suited my needs, arranged for a phone interview, took care of the bulk of the paperwork and guided me through the process. The application process seems never ending but the staff take a massive burden off you by completing a lot of it for you – which was a God send while I was still working in the UK and applying to work abroad.

The staff are all very friendly and approachable. The speed at which they respond to correspondence is to be commended. Overall I could not be happier with the help and support provided by transition medical. I already have a Friend using them to move out to Australia as GP and she is having just as positive an experience as I had. I would have no hesitation in recommending Transition Medical. One word – amazing!

“It’s lovely here, people are very friendly and feels much more relaxed. I used  Transition Medical, they were fantastic and made it very easy for me. They have people to help with NZ registration and visas which was relatively painless. They got me a job quickly, much more proactive then any other avenues I tried.”

Dr Dave, NZ

Emma Cook was/is the reason I am now working in Australia. She answered every question I had, and found me a job that was truly ‘tailored’ to my needs, a bespoke service if ever there was one. She calmly negotiated any hiccups that I had along the way, which thanks to her professionalism were minimal anyway. She will be my first port of call if I am ever looking for a job again.
