Posted by Emma GinnMs Abbott: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Departmentwhich companies have been contracted to provide medical services to each detentioncentre for asylum seekers in England.  Mr. McNulty: Three of the nine immigration removal centres in England are directly managed, being operated by the Prison Service on behalf of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate. Primary health care services at the centres concerned (Dover, Haslar and Lindholme) are therefore provided under normal Prison Service arrangements.
The six privately run removal centres are operated under separate contracts. The operators are: Global Solutions Ltd. at Campsfield, Oakington, Tinsley House and Yarl's Wood; Serco at Colnbrook; and UKDS Ltd. at Harmondsworth.
Removal centre contracts include requirements to provide specified primary healthcare services to detained persons. It is for the individual contractors to decidehow to deliver their contractual obligations for the provision of primary healthcare services, whether through "in-house" delivery, via a health caresub-contractor, or a mix of both approaches.
