@MarieCulliton @SimonHarrisTD @paulreiddublin @ACSLM1 @MedLabAssoc I was thinking it's a glaring oversight not to have a scientist at the table.

There is so much the government need to hear from one of us.

@CianDRyan @ACSLM1 Absolutely the way forward. And members able to access the talks afterwards so still able to get their CPD points. With staff shortages, it’s difficult to allow people attend events so this a way to allow everyone see and hear the talks.
