UPDATE: - PTC Body Armour Guidance
The Police Treatment Centres are here to help you and your return more speedily to full active service. The Police Treatment Centres is a registered charity which provides treatment, support & recuperation, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, for injured and ill police officers and retired officers.
Police officers are very often the first responders to serious accidents and dangerous incidents, dealing with death, distress and aggression. The Police Treatment Centres provide police specific treatment for any on or off duty injury. Whether it is a physical injury, or stress, depression, anxiety related, treatment and recuperation are provided to help them recover and aid their return back to work.
Almost 4000 serving and retired officers attend one of the two Treatment Centres each year at either St Andrews, in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, or Castlebrae in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
The Police Treatment Centres is supported by voluntary donations from serving police officers primarily in the northern forces of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, but also from British Transport Police, the Civil Nuclear Constabulary and the Ministry of Defence Police. Treatment is provided free of charge for serving and retired officers who make this small monthly donation.
"The treatment from my physio has brought my recovery on in leaps and bounds. This should not be one of the forces best kept secrets we must spread the word."
