I would strongly recommend Paul Brooks and Monique to GP’s and other relevant health professionals contemplating a move to Australia. After having contacted at least five different agencies dealing with GP’s relocating from the UK to Australia, Monique and Paul Brooks took the top spot in terms of understanding my requirements especially with the type of position my wife and I were looking for, the workings of the Australian Health Care, the paperwork involved, Immigration requirements, adjusting to the Aussie lifestyle etc. Their consistent help throughout the 10-12 month period prior to the move is definitely worth mentioning. They helped us settle on arrival in Australia and made our relocation process a smooth transition, especially as we had no prior local contacts. Now in Australia for a year I could not have entrusted my relocation to a better team. I would give them a 10/10 and wish them immense success in the future.
