INCLUSIVE SUPPORTIVE CONNECTED

PRU

The RAF Personnel Recovery Unit (PRU) was previously known as Personnel Holding Flight (PHF) until an internal move from RAF High Wycombe to Air Command was made on 6 June 12.

Who does the RAF PRU look after?

  • PRU provides personnel, administrative and welfare support to those individuals who have been wounded, injured or are long term sick, causing them to be made medically non-effective or unfit further service. Each person who comes under PRU is assigned a Personnel Recovery Officer who works with them to create a suited Individual Recovery Plan enabling them to focus on their outcome: either their return to duty or transition to civilian life.
  • Outside of this, PRU parents personnel on Career Breaks in excess of one year and administers Deferred Resettlement.
  • OC PRU and WO PRU oversee the RAF’s Standing Committee of Adjustment (RAFSCA) which administers personal effects of Service personnel who sadly die whilst in Service.

Opening Hours: Monday – Thursday: 0830 – 1700 Friday: 0830 - 1600
