21 Sep 2012
A new Jubilee Rehabilitation Complex has been opened at Headley Court by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The brand new complex in Surrey is worth £16.9 million and has been funded by the Ministry of Defence for injured military personnel.
The royal couples met with injured soldiers at the new Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court and were given a tour of its facilities.
Serving personnel and veterans who competed in the London 2012 Paralympic Games attended the opening.
Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Commanding Officer, Group Captain Clare Walton said: “The new facilities will enable our staff to continue to provide the very best of care to our patients and to keep Headley Court at the forefront of rehabilitation and prosthetics.”
Among the facilities at the centre, are a specially designed flat where patients can learn to live independently again, as well as a new therapy building and departments for radiology and prosthetics. The 48 bed complex also includes an open plan gym.
Staff and patients at Headley Court work together towards a single aim: to help servicemen and women rejoin their unit and get back to work as quickly as possible.
