Matthew Elks has joined the management team at ValleyView as our new Clinical Manager, bringing with him years of acute clinical skills and knowledge to lead our team into the future. He has spent the last 8 years working within the WA Country Health Service honing his craft in a variety of clinical roles including general nursing, palliative and emergency nursing and is an Edith Cowan and Notre Dame university alumni. An opportunity to branch out into the Aged Care sector was too good to pass up as the next challenge in his nursing career and a way to give back to the greater Collie community. He is passionate about improving the clinical care standards of the facility in addition to improving the lives of its residents and is excited about the future growth of the organisation. Matt lives in Collie with his wife and 2 young children, is a passionate West Coast Eagles supporter, enjoys camping, renovating and professional wrestling.
