My elderly mother (age 85) has waited on an ambulance since 3. 00pm and has just been picked up (10. 30pm). Her symptoms indicate internal bleeding. While she did not want to call 999, this wait is not acceptable. If the service is that busy to cause a wait of 7 and a half hours, the service is either under resourced or poorly managed.
