Keeping officers well
Officer feedback on the new Psychological Wellbeing Programme offered by the Police Treatment Centres (PTC) is featured in the latest edition of the Back on the Beat newsletter.
The newsletter is produced by the PTC to try to raise awareness of the support the charity offers to subscribing officers.
As well as the details of the positive feedback about the wellbeing programme, the publication includes information about PTC staff members’ recent training focusing on mental health. There is also the opportunity for the PTC to facilitate mental health first aid training for any force representatives at either of the charity’s centres.
The newsletter includes two special Save the Dates – one the 2018 Back on the Beat Cycle Sportive on Sunday 20 May 2018 and the other is a new event encouraging officers to sign up as Ambassadors to support the charity. If there is anyone you think would be interested in this role, please pass on the details to the Derbyshire Benevolent Trust office or contact the PTC.

Retired officers – don’t miss out on PTC benefits
Retired officers have now been given an extra six months to sign up to receive the full benefits of the Police Treatment Centres (PTC).
The PTC is a registered charity and provides two treatment centres where serving and retired police officers can receive recuperation and treatment following an illness or injury with the aim of helping them return to better health.
When Derbyshire Benevolent Trust first started supporting the PTC in April this year, the charity offered a six-month transition period during which retired officers could start subscribing and use the facilities at St Andrews in Harrogate and Castlebrae in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
But now the PTC chief executive Patrick Cairns has confirmed this transitional period will be extended.
- All Derbyshire retired officers – regardless of whether they were a donor to Flint House during their service – can sign up as donors to the PTC and, once their first month’s donation has been processed, can apply for treatment immediately. This is a transition period that will last up to 1 April 2018.
- After 1 April 2018, serving officers will be able to transition to retired donors to the PTC and, as long as they continue to seamlessly pay their donation rate at the current rate (which reduces significantly for retirees), will be able to apply for treatment immediately at the PTC without a break.
- After 1 April 2018, if a retiree wishes to sign up to donate to the PTC and then apply for treatment, if they were not a donor during their service, they will have to pay their donation for 12 months before being able to apply for treatment at the PTC. The same rule will apply if an individual was a donor in their service, but then has an extended break (case by case judgement but probably in excess of three months), by which they do not donate, but then start their donations in expectation of treatment.
- The PTC will continue to consider applications outside of these criteria.
