"care in Durham Prison for cluster headaches"
Posted by jaqueline (as ),
My son is on remand in H. M. P. , Durham.
He has suffered with a very painful condition, and saw a specialist at Bishop Aukland
Hospital last year. who prescribed him injections to give himself. He has cluster headaches which are likened to labour pains, are called suicide headaches as the pain is so bad. The doctor in prison has made enquiries and did prescribe him the treatment for when the headaches were bad.
The prison authorities were told he must have them available at all times.
I had a phone call from him yesterday, he was agitated as he had very bad pains, and the injections had run out, and he was suffering badly. I think the prescription should have been renewed and the treatment there for him.
