Each year about 3500 officers receive treatment on a residential basis at The Police Treatment Centres. By prioritising applications on the basis of clinical need we seek to offer treatment at the optimum time in a patient’s recovery. Treatment is provided free-of-charge to officers who make a monthly donation to the charity. If you are not currently making a regular donation to the Police Treatment Centres and would like to do so please click here for more information.
When inpatient service demands allows an outpatient service may be offered to those officers living or working within an hour's drive time of each Police Treatment Centre (although treatment decisions are based on individual circumstances)
Application forms for treatment can be found via the links on the left. Alternatively, forms are available from Occupational Health Units and Police Federation representatives.
Please ensure all parts have been completed and the relevant documentation attached (please see checklist if unsure). Often information is omitted form the form, such as a proper description of the condition requiring treatment, proof of donation and relevant signatures all of which will delay the application process.
Following a number of matters arising in the past it has been necessary to introduce a process to assess, as well as support for, the attendance of patients ‘companions’. In such cases, please also complete and submit the Companions Applications Form.
By making a monthly donation, the PTC can support YOU during difficult times. Your donation gives you access to free, expert, police-specific treatment, at one of our 2 centres, regardless of whether your injury occurred on or off duty.
If you are a serving or retired police officer and have suffered an injury or illness, our experienced and fully qualified staff may be able to assist you.
We are a registered charity funded almost entirely by donations from serving officers and members of the public. We need your support.
