A force for promoting and improving health and wellbeing
The Police Treatment Centres (PTC) is a registered charity which provides treatment and support, including intensive, police-specific physiotherapy and rehabilitation, for injured and ill police family members.
It supports serving and retired police officers, Police Community Support Officers, detention/custody officers, Special Constables and Police Staff Investigators (including CSIs and Civilian Investigators) who make the voluntary donation via direct debit/payroll.

For just a small donation you could have the comfort of knowing the PTC will be there for you if you are injured or ill, through free treatment, support and recuperation, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
Don’t forget, it doesn’t matter if your injury occurs on or off duty – it could have occurred playing football or even walking the dog.
Each patient attending for physiotherapy is thoroughly assessed regarding their condition upon arrival, and the volume of treatment is decided by an experienced clinician. A tailored programme is then developed based on the individual’s clinical needs.
Treatment is holistic and includes:
Online physiotherapy outpatients
The online physiotherapy outpatient service gives you access to the usual high standard of expert advice and treatment with the benefit, flexibility and comfort of carrying this out in your own home.
A huge benefit is gained from the close working arrangement within the clinical staff, ensuring all patients are well equipped to continue their rehabilitation when they leave.
Psychological wellbeing programme
Alongside the physiotherapy programme, the Treatment Centres also offers a psychological wellbeing programme for those who need support with stress, anxiety and other such conditions.
This is a two-week structured programme designed specifically for serving officers.
When attending on the psychological wellbeing programme, you can expect to take part in:
Retired officer wellbeing programme
The retired officer wellbeing programme is a one-week programme designed specifically for those who have retired from the police Family and have a formal diagnosis of mild to moderate anxiety and depression.
Please note, this programme is not intended to address symptoms of PTSD which require a longer input.
The programme offers a seven-day residential stay, Monday to Sunday, culminating in a weekend stay of relaxation and reflection in the safe environment of either Harrogate or Auchterarder.
There will be five days of group workshops and classes, and there will also be the option to take part in low-level exercise classes including Tai Chi and yoga , access to class-leading gym facilities and pools and the opportunity to build a tailor made fitness and health programme with one of the PTC fitness instructors.
