Due to the national Flu vaccine supply shortages and delayed deliveries beyond our control, we would like to provide you with an update on your flu vaccination.
If you are 65 (or due to turn 65 before 1st April 2022), we will be in touch with you shortly to invite you to our FLU clinic at Jubilee House. Please DO NOT attend Jubilee House for your FLU vaccination unless you have been invited by your practice. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We always strive to provide the best care to our patients, and we will do our best to keep you updated and informed of any changes. Updates will be communicated on the Website and Facebook page. If you do not have access to any of these please consider asking a family member to check on your behalf.
You can still attend for your COVID BOOSTER if eligible & we strongly recommend getting this when you can.
If you are under 65 you can still attend Jubilee House on the dates and times below for your Flu vaccination.

UPDATED OPEN LETTER TO ALL PATIENTS AT THE RYAN MEDICAL CENTRE
We are now emerging from the long Covid lockdown.
At The Ryan Medical Centre, we have remained open throughout the pandemic and our doctors and nurses have been seeing patients face to face on a daily basis. However, our service did change to ensure the practice remained safe for both patients and staff.
We continue to be both open and a Covid secure practice remaining available to assess anyone with a medical need. This may initially be via a phone call, but all patients are asked to attend a face-to-face appointment if this is felt to be more appropriate or clinically needed. If you have delayed ringing us because of Covid worries, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
The waiting room is now open, but we are still checking patients in at the door. As we often have the vulnerable and elderly in our waiting room (even if vaccinated this does not provide complete protection) we would like to ask anyone coming down for a face-to-face appointment to do a Covid lateral flow test at home before they arrive. This will help protect other patients and reduce spread.
Anyone who attends the surgery still needs to wear a face mask, this is government guidance and helps protect both patients and staff
We are very proud of how our staff have enabled us to remain safe and open over the last year but there is no doubt that we, like you, are looking forward to getting back to normal.
Take care and get vaccinated!
