60,000 people register to 'be on call for Ireland' in battle against COVID19

Over 60,000 people have registered for the "Be On Call For Ireland" Covid-19 recruitment drive.

The HSE is now analysing all the information, and has asked everyone who has applied to be patient while they work through the applications.

The focus will primarily be on recruiting health professionals who are not providing care in any healthcare setting already, but who are available for work immediately.
