The Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy team carefully design each rehabilitation programme to the specific needs of the patient and use the wide range of facilities available to achieve patients goals. The focus of every member of the clinical team is to offer effective treatment to all attending officers. Every individual serving/retired officer is personally assessed on arrival at the Centre and for the duration of their residential stay is given their own programme of treatment. In order to facilitate rehabilitation the centre runs over 20 classes a day.
