Simon Hemsley - Manager Medical Specialities

"Simon is an honest, enthusiastic and responsible recruitment manager who maintains an ongoing professional relationship with the people he places.

I was particularly impressed by Simon’s ability to handle multiple tasks at the same time. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a locum position."

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I would like to express my extreme satisfaction with the services of Benjamin Lepke, who has been coordinating locum assignments for me for nearly a year now.

Benjamin has proved to be a consummately efficient, personable, and a well-connected liaison.

He has good understanding of the types of environments in which I prefer to work, and is adept at supplying those: all in a timely fashion, resulting in no unwanted “down time” between engagements."

I hope to continue the partnership with Benjamin for many years, and heartily recommend his service to any medical professional thinking of doing locum work.

  • Dr A.C - Emergency Registrar - QLD

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have been working with Ben for 9 years now, and would highly recommend 1Medical for locum and full-time work in Australia and overseas.
They let me know about suitable opportunities very quickly and once given the go ahead are almost always successful in negotiating excellent terms with the hospitals involved.

Nothing is too much trouble for Ben and his team and the 'Can do' attitude is extremely refreshing, as well as comforting.

Whether it's changing flights, contracts or accommodation or expediting payments, 1Medical are more than happy to accommodate my requirements in a stress free and timely environment."

I aim to continue working with Ben and 1Medical for the foreseeable future."

Simon Hemsley - Manager Medical Specialities

"I worked with Simon Hemsley in a very critical and difficult time.

I had to secure a permanent position with the correct supervision in a very short period of time which was challenging.

Simon, secured my dream job for me within a few days, not months and honesty speaking, I can say that Simon is the best recruitment agent I've ever worked with.

Even once he had secured me a role he didn’t stop providing alternative options to suit my requirements and needs."

I recommend Simon Hemsley for doctors who are willing to develop their career and meet their requirements"

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have loved working with 1Medical because of their ability to find me locum placements efficiently and with little fuss. These dates are sometimes at the last minute. Ben's attention to detail is refreshing."

  • Dr N.M - Emergency Advanced Trainee - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

I am an emergency registrar who has been enjoying a rewarding working relationship with Benjamin Lepke and 1Medical.
I was first notified of 1Medical by my FACEM whilst discussion locum options. He highly recommended 1Medical, leading me to connect with Ben for potential locum work.

My first impression was of an approachable, non-pushy, attentive and competent outfit. Ben first sought to identify my needs which were to: widen my experience, travel and see Australia, finding lucrative job prospects that had consultant job openings in the next few years.

Ben quickly found some appropriate job opportunities in WA, Victoria, Tasmania, North Territory, Queensland. He facilitated my transition to locuming in a reassuring and patient manner. All the logistics and organisation of the upcoming locum shifts were sorted and I could just focus on the work at hand. I think this is key. It just makes your life a lot easier.
Ben and 1Medical have been instrumental in my enjo

yment and fulfilment of this year of locuming, from an educational, experiential and financial perspective. I can not commend the team enough.
One extra-curricular highlight was 1medical funding for 10 of my doctor colleagues for an all expenses night out at a Brisbane rooftop bar followed by a night out at the Brisbane City Hall to enjoy a unique collab between the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra and DJs in a one-off audio-visual show (Synthony).

One medical highlight was working as a flight doctor and participating in an overnight oil rig rotary retrieval 200km out from the Pilbara coast in the Indian Ocean.

5-6 of my friends and colleagues have been personally referred to Ben as I have been more than happy to testify their service.
In my opinion, they are the best!

  • Dr J.K - Emergency Registrar - QLD

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have known Ben for over 8 years and have worked with him over the last year across the country completing ad-hoc locum stints. Ben is always able to provide options for me during my periods of time off that are sometimes only 2-3 weeks in advance. I’m very happy with their ability to pay promptly, organise everything efficiently and ensure I arrive to hospitals knowing what I am expected to do, where to go, who to see and what I should be doing. I’d happily recommend 1Medical to any doctors looking to undertake locum work across the country."

  • Dr D.A - Emergency SMO - QLD

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I’ve know Ben for over 10 years; he’s started his own recruitment agency for Doctors, being 1Medical, and has a new website. In all my dealings with Ben over the years I’ve found him honest efficient and supportive with any locum placement.

The difference with this small agency is just that: it’s small and personal. Ben gets to quickly get a feel for what you really like doing , AND what you don’t want to do. Then he just works away and makes it happen quickly. He really solves any problems ASAP, and is very diligent in sorting out any issues, usually on the same day. I have no hesitation in recommending Ben and his agency!"

  • Dr R.C - SMO Emergency - QLD

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I'm really very pleased with my experience with Ben from 1Medical in arranging my specialist locum roles. He is a prompt communicator and responsive to doctors' needs. I will definitely continue to liaise with him for any future endeavours."

  • Dr A.W - FACEM - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I was happy with how things were organised.

More importantly the message which you sent me that you will be accessible by phone when I am driving and while working was very nice.

I will continue working with you and I have decided I will not be working with any other locum agency but with 1Medical
Congratulations and Good luck"

  • Dr I.S - FACEM - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have worked with Ben Lepke of 1Medical for almost 10 years.

Throughout that time he has proved himself to be knowledgeable and helpful in arranging locum positions.

His service is personal and tailored, and he responds quickly and appropriately should problems occur."

  • Dr W.D - ED Director / FACEM - NSW

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have found 1Medical to be organised, thoughtful, and helpful with all of my needs.

They have always had necessary paperwork sorted for me, they have considered my needs, and bent over backwards to help find me placements where I was interested in going to.

I use them exclusively as they meet all my requirements."

  • Dr P.R - FACEM - QLD

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"This year I began working with 1Medical as a locum in emergency departments throughout the country.

The experience from start to finish has been excellent. Ben has been able to secure work when and where I wanted it, allowing me to see the parts of Australia I wanted to. All while working in friendly, well supported departments and setting some savings aside.

By securing work long in advance, I have been able to plan work around holidays and family events for the first time in my career.

Ben is always on the ball with paperwork, making the different registration processes as smooth as possible. Communication has always been excellent with any issues sorted as soon as they arise.

I would fully recommend 1Medical to anyone interested in gaining control over their working life and exploring all Australia has to offer.

Thanks again!"

  • Dr D.C - ED Registrar - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I’ve taken multiple breaks in my training to locum with multiple agencies, experiencing the time-consuming and tedious bureaucratic process when signing on several times, believing it to simply be the norm.

When I signed on with 1Medical I was amazed by their efficiency, making the process so simple with minimal paperwork. In addition they are the most accommodating and flexible with plenty of work offered at outstanding pay rates. They are always available to take my calls and emails are replied to almost immediately.

In all aspects 1Medical is miles ahead of any other locum agency. They are the only agency I want to engage with from now on and the only one I recommend to my colleagues."

  • Dr N.P - ED Advanced Trainee - NSW

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I was recommended 1Medical and have found Ben pleasant, professional, and easy to deal with. The organisation for my locum placements has been relatively seamless, and Ben has always been easy to get hold of if any issues arrive. Working with a smaller agency and single contact has suited me very well."

  • Dr K.B - FACEM - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have worked exclusively with Ben since 2011 to date. Initially as full time locum and over years becoming part time. He to date has never failed my expectations and always seems to know exactly what I need. He still impresses with continuously providing me with the best locum opportunities suited to my working requirements. He is very approachable, understanding and has a comprehensive knowledge and an extensive experience of the industry.

For all of reasons above and many more i highly recommend Ben to any doctor wanting to locum. Of all my colleague doctors that I have introduced to Ben the perception is same.

Thank you Ben for maintaining your professional and very thoughtful approach to my needs as a locum doctor."

  • Dr J.K - Emergency SMO - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"Ben is a truly dedicated manager. He strives to connect people with positions, with an emphasis on balancing time and wellbeing.

I have already recommended a large number of colleagues to him and they are well looked after by the team at 1 Medical. I would urge you to try 1 Medical for your comprehensive, personalised job opportunities."

  • Dr M.K - ED Director / FACEM - VIC

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I have worked with Ben for years since moving from Ireland to Australia. I have always been impressed with his tenacity and professionalism and he is incredibly easy to deal with.

Where other firms have left me feeling like another CV on the pile, Ben and 1Medical have always followed through on getting me work when and where I want it, taking my personal preferences into account along the way and following up to make sure that everything had worked out. I would happily recommend them to anyone."

  • Dr D.R - ED Advanced Trainee - VIC

"Ben is great- personable, approachable and proactive at getting jobs lined up. He would check in to make sure every thing was going well and that there were no issues.

He always tried his best to accommodate our schedule and give us exciting and enjoyable placements. I would definitely recommend working with 1Medical!"

  • Dr A.M - ED Registrar - Ireland

Ben Lepke - Manager Emergency Medicine

"I came to know about 1Medical/Ben from a fellow colleague.

Initially I was a little sceptical about the agency’s abilities to get shifts considering it is a smaller agency and I was proven wrong on many occasions.

I have been working with Ben for an entire year and have no doubt in recommending his services to anyone."
