A WOMAN of 79 with a broken hip had to wait for 20 hours in an ambulance outside hospital.
Ann Morrison lay on the ground for two hours before paramedics turned up after she fell from her mobility scooter into the road at Roche, Cornovaglia.
She then spent almost a day outside the Royal Cornwall Hospital before a bed became available.
Her son Ron Johns said: “It goes beyond being annoyed.
“There were more than 20 ambulances at one point.
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly’s Integrated Care System apologised.
They told: “That it is not the level of care that we aspire to provide.”
