Maurice seriously ill in HMP Swansea having waited for an operation for some 7 months
Oct 30, 2014 — You can't make it up what 'the system of professionals' does to individuals. Maurice's sister got a phone call from another prisoner to tell her about Maurice's condition:
"Just had a worrying call from a prisoner, unfortunately I was in the garden and did not pick up the call but the message said 'phoning on behalf of Kirk who is very ill, rolling about the floor and is sick on the floor' (It was a foreigner so a little hard to clarify)
I have phoned the Prison and told the operator. As I had complained to the Chaplain that he was ill yesterday I spoke with him again and he is investigating.
Will give you an update later if/when I hear or am put through to the Chaplain."
If you have the time and inclination to speak to HMP Swansea, Chaplains tend to be more helpful than governors or the IMB, the Independent Monitoring Board: 01792 485300
