The operating standards for immigration removal centres requires that all detainees are medically screened, to include an assessment for risk of self-harm/suicidal behaviour, within two hours of admission. Performance is reported on a monthly basis by the service provider. The on-site Home Office team also has the opportunity to view the induction records for individual detainees.

Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Prisons conducted an inspection of Tinsley House between 1-12 December 2014 and found that all detainees were interviewed by a member of the health care team on reception and information was shared sensitively between escort and centre staff.
