Concern over Britain's refugee detention policy

rather than to confront the genuine psychological needs of people fleeing persecution, they warn.

The lessons for Britain are clear. Australia has acknowledged the failure of detention policy. There is ample evidence that models of community accommodation for asylum seekers lead to better mental health outcomes and that humane but rigorous forms of monitoring can still be instituted in these settings.

By continuing to document the psychosocial impact of detention, the medical profession is well placed to add its expert voice in shaping humane immigration policies, they conclude.
