Rule 35 of the Detention Centre Rules 2001 requires doctors working in immigration removal centres to report to the Home Office if they have concerns about the case of any particularly vulnerable detainee in order that the appropriateness of their continued detention can be reviewed.

A Home Office audit of Rule 35 compliance was undertaken in 2014 and a summary of the audit’s findings will be published in due course.
