Council understand that many members are also now redeployed within the HSE. Thank you. The dedication and willingness to serve is heartening and inspirational.
IASLT will endeavour to share information as quickly as possible. Council appreciate the urgency of queries, however council members volunteer their time on behalf of our professional body and are also on the front line of this crisis.
