Details

Rule 35 of the statutory Detention Centre Rules 2001 (SI 238/2001) requires doctors working in immigration removal centres (IRCs) to report to the Home Office concerning any detainee about whom they have health-related concerns.

The quality analysis team audited a random sample of 60 cases in which Rule 35 reports were completed between January and March 2014. The purpose was to assess the extent to which the instructions in the Detention Rule 35 Process Instruction and Detention Services Order 17/12 were followed by doctors, contact management team staff and case workers, as well as providing an assessment of the content of the Rule 35 reports and the responses to them.
