    A Canterbury woman is fed up her surgery has been rescheduled five times because of ongoing strikes

    A Canterbury woman is fed up her surgery has been rescheduled five times because of ongoing strikes


    Around 12-hundred APEX Union radiographers have taken strike action for a fourth time, after 10 months of failed negotiations.

    Ashburton woman Colleen Linwood has been waiting for a hip replacement since January.

    She says on top of the pain she's living with - it's having a huge impact on her life.

    She's urged the DHBs to sort out a deal for radiographers, because it's causing huge disruption for a lot of people.
