Northland woman left in intense pain due to arterial condition

From Morning Report, 8:48 am on 5 October 2020

What began as a simple sore toe two years ago has left a Northland woman asking doctors to cut off her leg due to the intense pain she's in every day.

Suzanne Insley claims her repeated requests for blood clot tests were ignored as her condition worsened.

A complaint to the Health and Disabilty Commission was not upheld, leaving her feeling that doctors have neglected to take responsibility for their decisions.
