If You Are a Supporter or Visitor
If you think that a detainee has been tortured or has significant health problems which are getting worse in detention, and would benefit from a visit from an independent doctor, you can use the online referral form. Give as much detail as you can about what you have observed when visiting them and why you are concerned. The more information you can give, the better we can process the referral. ‘Mr X is very depressed’’ is not very useful because it means different things to different people. Please try to complete all the boxes in the referral form, even if it’s just “n/a” (non applicable).
If you would like advice about making a referral, you can ring on: 0207 561 7498
