Long wait for x-ray

September 25, 2019
My general practitioner completed an x-ray request form in mid June 2019. I put in an application to Healthcare. The reply was that the form had been passed to administration. I still have not been for x-ray - 13 weeks now

Inadequate aftercare following eye operation

September 25, 2019
Had a cataract eye operation R eye at Brighton eye hospital in June 2019. - day treatment. Healtchare did not provide sufficient aftercare to administer eye drops - missed doses of eye drops and needed help from another inmate to administer drops for 6 weeks. Don't want L eye hospital treatment whilst in Lewes Prison due to lack of confident with aftercare

Lack of access to mental health

September 25, 2019
I have been here for 4 weeks without a mental health or medication review. I have anxiety, depression and split personality, how can this be acceptable. Roughly 3 weeks ago I was given a date for mental health to see me but they cancelled it even when I was asked to stay behind in my cell and wait for them to come. They told me they would re-schedule but never bothered
