Police Treatment Centres

The following message is circulated on behalf of the Police Treatment Centres :

Due to the current long waiting list at Harrogate anyone who is from Cleveland, Cumbria, Durham, Northumbria, or PSNI forces (or who lives within these geographical locations) will be allocated a place at AUCHTERARDER even if their preference is for treatment is at Harrogate.
With effect from Monday 6th February 2012 any application form received from the Durham force will be automatically allocated Auchterarder (subject to clinical assessment)
The Police Treatment Centre implemented this interim measure in June last year, and it proved to be successful in reducing waiting times for treatment, and enabling officers quicker access to treatment.
If there are unique and significant circumstances why an officer should be admitted to St. Andrews rather than Castlebrae they should submit these in writing (email accepted) either via Welfare with the application form or submissions can be made directly to the Centre.  Each case will be considered on an individual basis by the clinical and administrative teams.
