The new Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre opened in 2018.

A state-of-the-art Ministry of Defence clinical rehabilitation facility, it provides expert care and support for wounded, injured and sick Armed Forces personnel.

The Legion donated £5 million to fund the centre’s complex trauma gym as part of our commitment to support service personnel who have suffered major trauma or injury. The gym will be at the heart of patients’ recovery and rehabilitation, meeting all exercise therapy needs at the DNRC.

The new DNRC has replaced the original centre at Headley Court, Surrey.

Based at Stanford Hall on the Nottingham-Leicestershire border, it will provide world-class rehabilitation facilities including advanced specialist care for amputations, serious or multiple fractures, muscular damage, spinal injuries and more.

The complex trauma gym will enable the DNRC team to provide patients with everything they need to support them on their journey – whether it’s to return to service or transition to civilian life and a new career. Serving Armed Forces members are referred to recovery centres as part of their individual recovery plan.

If you’re looking to be referred to a centre we’d recommend speaking to your Unit Welfare Officer if you are serving with a unit, or your Personnel Recovery Officer if you have been assigned to a Personnel Recovery Unit.
