The Police Treatment Centres

A charity providing treatment, support & recuperation for injured and ill 
Police Family members.

MDPROA have joined with the Police Treatment Centres, which is an organisation that provides treatment and support, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, for injured and ill police officers and retired officers. 

Both Centres have significantly improved over the last two years and the standard and quality of the treatment and facilities are better than ever. PTC do value retired officers  and in 2018 treated 316 retirees on a residential basis at their Centres. They already provide services to the wider police family including serving MDP Officers and would like to extend facilities to MDP  Retired Officers. MDPROA are keen to promote the services available more widely.

The Police Treatment Centres – two offers for MDP Retired Officers


Welcome to The Police Treatment Centres.  As you know there are many benefits to your health and wellbeing from signing up to donate, and we also have other offers for you.

Bed & Breakfast – for members of the Police Family

Bed & Breakfast is available at both St Andrews (Harrogate) and Castlebrae (Auchterarder, Perthshire) on the majority of weekends throughout the year for members of the Police Family and friends/relatives who you accompany.  The current rates (2019) are just £120 for a double or twin room or £100 for a single.  This price is inclusive of Friday & Saturday nights so represents really good value and B&B is very popular.  Whether you want to explore the beautiful Yorkshire or Perthshire countryside or get involved with the plentiful activities on offer in both areas, our centres have something for everyone.  B&B weekends have raised valuable funds for the PTCs – funds which go straight back into the charity, enabling us to upgrade existing facilities and services.   

 “We had the privilege of staying at St Andrews … what a wonderful place it is too.  The staff, facilities – everything about the visit was superb”.    

“We enjoyed a splendid weekend at Castlebrae.  The accommodation, surroundings, staff and food can only be described as first class. You should be proud of the service provided.”

Mark Hurst, a retired Staffordshire Officer recently came to Harrogate for treatment following a cycling accident:

“I had a week’s intensive physiotherapy which greatly improved my walking ability and mobility within the joints affected by my injury.“

It wasn’t just the treatment that helped Mark, the atmosphere offered great benefit. “Mixing with the group of retired and serving officers.. The camaraderie crosses the ages I am pleased to say!

I will be telling everyone I know about the benefits of the centre.”
