Maqdalena Konazyk from Co Clare had enough of languishing on a hospital waiting list for three years for a procedure that took just 30 seconds.

Ms Konazyk (41), who is Polish and has been living in Lahinch for over 20 years, needed a scan to assess her very painful varicose veins.

The scan shows the blood flow and the treatment also involved radiofrequency ablation which closes off the varicose vein in the leg.
