Police Treatment Centres Amnesty

The Police Treatment Centres charity is running an Amnesty during September and October 2021.

During these months only, serving and retired officers will be able to start donating to the charity and be eligible to receive treatment without the usual 12 month wait (subject to clinical assessment and current waiting times).

This amnesty applies to serving and retired officers, PCSOs, Special Constables and Detention and Custody Officers.



The past two years have been difficult for the police family and the charity recognises that demand for its services will only increase. The PTC at St Andrews has recently opened its new Clinical Services Wing, providing more capacity across both our Centres. By offering this amnesty, the charity hopes it will appeal to officers who have not previously signed up or who have cancelled their donations to the charity during their career.

During the amnesty months the charity will host virtual information sessions on Teams to help officers to better understand the work of the Centres. The dates will be:

7 September at 10.00am - Tour of Castlebrae, Auchterarder Centres
8 September at 10.00am - Tour of St Andrews, Harrogate Centres
15 September at 10.00am - Physiotherapy Information Session
16 September at 10.00am - Psychological Wellbeing Information Session
29 September at 10.00am - Amnesty Update and Q&A Session

6 October at 10.00am - Tour of Castlebrae, Auchterarder Centres
7 October at 10.00am - Tour of St Andrews, Harrogate Centres
13 October at 10.00am - Physiotherapy Information Session
14 October at 10.00am - Psychological Wellbeing Information Session
26 October at 10.00am - Amnesty Update and Q&A Session

Federation Chair, Nigel Goodband, recently became a trustee of the Police Treatment Centres charity. The treatment he had at Harrogate following a series of heart attacks changed his life.
