Recovery courses

As part of a soldier’s recovery pathway for an injury or illness that exceeds 56 days, soldiers need to be enrolled on between three and five mandatory recovery courses, as well as giving them access to the Rolling Recovery Programme of activities and courses that are available. These courses are held at the Personnel Recovery Centres (PRC) and at the Battle Back Centre in Lilleshall. They are designed to offer both adaptive sporting opportunities, as well as developmental courses in recovery tactics and employment possibilities for those who are leaving the Army.

The mandatory military courses run roughly once a month in each of the PRCs and last between five and ten days. Each course has a capacity of up to 16 soldiers at different stages in their recovery. Dress at the PRC for the courses is civvies, although the military staff working there and teaching will be in uniform.
