I am a morbidly obese inmate and I have had trouble with my weight for many years now. The fourteen months before I was sentenced, I lost 4 stone in weight, which is gradually going back on and is getting me down. I have only been to gym sessions twice due to abuse from other inmates.
We are encouraged to go to work, which I do on a full time basis and the consequence is you do not get any chance to either go into the yard or even get time for a daily shower.
In my opinion a great deal more is needed for patient 50+ such as gym sessions for over 50s, at least 3 - 4 sessions a week.
