An order under s49 made by the Justice Secretary alongside a transfer direction under s47 in most cases when moving a prisoner to hospital. It has the same effect as a restriction order and means the patient becomes a restricted patient. A restriction direction can also (and in some cases, must) accompany a transfer under s48.

See Discharge of transferred prisoners.
