Prior to September 2014 the Home Office was responsible for commissioning health including mental health services in Immigration Removal Centres. The Department does not therefore hold the information requested for years 2010 to September 2014.

Since September 2014 NHS England has been responsible for commissioning all health services within Immigration Removal Centres. However NHS England does not hold the information in the format requested.
