It is important to understand the circumstances and needs of the individual for admission and to organise appropriate treatment to support them in a return to better health and wellbeing.
Individuals who make applications for admission should normally be capable of independently undertaking the ‘Activities of Daily Living’ including self-care and self-medication. However each and every application will be sympathetically considered as a ‘significant and unique’ case and account will be taken of the support that an individual could themselves marshal to assist their circumstances e.g. accompanied by a ‘companion’ e.g. spouse/partner, son/daughter; friend.
The Charity’s provision is intended to be by way of short intensive treatment with the aim of helping the individual to make progress in resolving, or alleviating, a treatable condition.
Applications for admission must be supported by evidence of a clinical need that can be addressed by the Clinical Teams at the PTCs and a positive, measurable clinical outcome achieved.
Whilst the normal admission will be for a 2 week period, if in the opinion of the clinical team a shorter stay would be sufficient to achieve a positive clinical outcome then an initial one week admission period will be offered.
Due to demand on our services we do not accept patients for ‘Respite’, when no active treatment is required, e.g. after minor operations or illness. Each patient requires a clear need of clinical services input in order to be admitted in order to ensure the best use of our clinical resources.

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.
