Default Reporting a prisoners health problems - HELP NEEDED

Hello. Sorry if this is a long one.

I'm really worried about my brothers health and I don't know what to do. He's in prison in the Yorkshire area. He has really bad gum and dental problems. His teeth are in a horrible state. They're covered in plaque and are chipped. His gums are sore and bleeding. They're also turning black!! I think he has a serious gum disease problem called necrotising ulcerative gingivitis.

But the prison arent treating him and will not listen to me. He's reported it many times and has been told he'll have to wait to be seen by a dentist as they can't free anybody to take him. This was over a month ago. He's still not been seen or taken anywhere.

I've complained in person on visits. I've companied in writing to the governor, the healthcare manager and to the prisons prisoner health department. I've rang the prison multiple times too. But nobody has written or rang me back. I'm at my wits end. They ignore my concerns or tell me my brother must report it - which he already has done many times. I don't know what to do.

Does anybody know who else I can report this to?
Is there anything else I can do?

If anybody has any advice I would really appreciate it. Thank you
