The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre – Loughborough
The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) is a state of the art rehabilitation centre for the armed forces and potentially the nation. The Defence facility, which is being funded entirely by charitable donations, will open its doors by the end of 2018 and will succeed Headley Court as the UK’s leading facility for clinical rehabilitation of those in the Armed Forces.
The aim of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) is to deliver first class 21st century rehabilitation facilities to injured military personnel. It is designed to accommodate up to 300 injured servicemen and women and there are also plans for the centre to eventually treat civilians.
RCM supplied over 4,000 sheathing boards to the project. The DNRC was the initiative of the late 6th Duke of Westminster, who set the programme in motion but sadly died in 2016. Located near Loughborough, the DNRC at Stanford Hall estate is a major construction project turning both the existing buildings as well as new builds into a state of the art rehabilitation centre for the Ministry of Defence.
