A burglar who had a £20,000 sex change on the NHS while in prison has defended her free treatment - and says taxpayers' money is wasted on cancer patients.
Jasmine Goode, previously a man called Darren, was serving 11 years for a string of burglaries when the treatment began in Leyhill open prison.
Jasmine, 37, is now out of prison and told The Sun: "The NHS was generous and I've been able to get the body I always wanted. But it's not wrong that I was given help.
"I had gender dysphoria - a condition that made me feel like I'd been born with the wrong body.
"The NHS wastes money helping people with cancer, often smokers, even though their condition is terminal and they are going to die, whereas I've got lots of years left."
She also said: "I'm working now, but it would have cost taxpayers more if the NHS had refused me - I'd have been too depressed to work and lived off sickness benefits."
Darren Goode 34, is serving 11 years for raids on the elderly, including a woman of 102.
But a month ago he started wearing dresses, lipstick and make-up and said he was preparing for a sex change.
And since then inmates and staff at Leyhill open prison near Bristol have been ordered to call him Jasmine, according to reports in a national newspaper.
An insider said Goode was preparing for a full gender swap costing more than £18,000.
The insider said Goode has already been allowed out of prison to visit a consultant in London’s Harley Street, accompanied by a female prison officer.
He has also stayed at a hostel for transgender people in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, on his home leave.
Goode wears a pink cardigan over his prison uniform during the day but at 5pm changes into a skirt and trainers.
The source added: “He’s always in full make-up and nail varnish.”
Goode, of Droitwich, Worcs, is married with two children but his family have disowned him.
A Prison Service spokesman said last night: “All prisoners are entitled to the same healthcare provision as they could access in the community.”

Not one of the most positive advocates for Gender Dysphoria - it has to be said! Also no one appears to know that there is a Hostel for Transgender people in Colwyn Bay, although it has to be said , There is every other type of Hostel in Colwyn Bay and Llandudno.
