The Police Treatment Centres- A Force for Promoting and Improving Health & Wellbeing

We continue to welcome Retired Officers for treatment at our centres in Harrogate and Auchterarder.

Both of our Centres are continuously improving and the standard and quality of the treatment and facilities are better than ever. We continue to value Retired Officers at the PTC and in 2022 we treated 391 retirees on a residential basis at our Centres.

If you spent the majority of your Police Service in one of the PTC constituent forces, or since retiring have relocated to a PTC constituent Force, you are eligible to become a PTC donor and beneficiary. You can access our class leading residential Physiotherapy and Remote Physiotherapy Outpatient services.

For a donation of just £4.50 per month, you can access our class leading residential Physiotherapy and Online Physiotherapy Outpatient services, as well as our new Wellbeing Programme designed specifically for those who have retired from the Police *subject to PTC Eligibility Policy.

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 will offer a 7 Day residential stay, Monday to Sunday, culminating in a weekend stay of relaxation and reflection in the safe environment of either Harrogate and Auchterarder.

There will be 5 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 our 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.

"Had I not been given the treatment at Harrogate, I feel sure that my career would have been over and that I would have been left with a limp. It wasn’t easy and there were a lot of tears along the way but I made it. I completed my full thirty years in GMP as a dog handler and I am now happily retired.

I recently had a week in Harrogate in January after injuring my back. I hobbled in on the Sunday afternoon and walked out on the Friday”.

The Police Children's Charity is a registered Charity which supports Police Families by helping to ease the financial pressures of bringing up children in the face of life-changing circumstances.

The Charity also offers financial assistance to support the mental health and wellbeing of the children of eligible donors, including into retirement.

Retired Officers can still support The Police Children's Charity and receive help if your children are still of eligible age and you remain a current donor.
