Here is a question on health and things. Having had more than a fair share of Anna strikes, and being on there for one day at most.
Was just wondering, why does it cost OAPs in hospitals £6 per day to watch TV, but in prisons its free?

Just asking

Now you come to mention it £6 a day seems a little steep. I will see if I can find out why it is so high.

Can't see how that would work in this particular instance.
