DSI in ongoing communication with HSE

As you may know from the communication last week regarding fever and testing, we are communicating with the HSE, and will try to ensure that they are taking into account the needs of people with Down syndrome and their families, so do let us know if there are particular issues you’d like us to raise.

This page is worth keeping an eye on, as this is where new HSE resources for people with disabilities will be posted 

For example, this guide to testing might be useful to prepare.
