"Healthcare at HMP Lindholme"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

My son has been trying to get appropriate medical attention since Dec 2013 to no avail. Last week he was admitted to a hospital in Doncaster with a suspected heart attacK. He was tested done and sent back to the prison. He had a minor one but has nerve damage around his heart and tissue infection. His after care 4 days after being admitted amounted to very little. Over the last 4 months he has been given Gaviscon - of all things - and a course of antibiotics. He has been diagnosed has having a Thyroglassyl cyst which keeps bursting, a Doctor said he needed it removed ASAP, that was way back in begining of January. I feel the nurses refuse to take him seriously and when he has asked to see the doctor he seems to have been fobbed off. The treatment he has received up until now at HMP Lindholme it seems to me has been diabolical.
