There are genuine grounds to believe that the best place to become ill in New South Wales Australia is inside the prison system.
The Sydney Daily Telegraph my favorite newspaper delivered daily to my door reveals , taxpayers are funding a gold plated health service catering for every inmate sniffle and ache.
Most of this info is backed up from personal contact with the inmates by a family friend who is employed within the prison welfare system, with whom I am in personal contact.
It appears there is one nurse for every 20 inmates, its kid gloves all the way.
If you have a droopy dick, fiddle your tax - go to jail and get it straightened out.
Erection dysfunction, hormone treatments, ingrown toenails and circumcision ops by (Dr Finklestein- maybe) these were among 250 elective surgery procedures funded over the past two years.

But most ordinary citizens face out of pocket medical costs to see GPS and specialists, and to access prescriptions. Prisoners do not.

There is no case for prisoners getting better health services than the rest of our community.
Even the slightest evidence of this is offensive.
The latest revelations about what is going on in N S W jails come shortly after recent reports of a serial rapist getting his sperm frozen and backpacker killer Ivan Milat having privileges such as a Television and toaster oven. After a public and a personal condemnation of these personal prisoners privileges, the privileges were removed. But dear oh dear, the prisoners became very upset over the new restrictions and cried 'Foul' and guess what, yeah your absobloodylutely right, they are probably back in front of the telly munching toasted sandwiches watching porno movies with their newly repaired penis in the other hand.
there are worrying signs the the NSW Govt is losing touch with what the public expects on law and order.
