Jill Woolley an 88 year old with dementia taken by ambulance to A&E at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham spent more than five hours on a trolley in A&E. It took more than 90 minutes just to be transferred into the care of the hospital.
Her son-in-law Peter Tuck took photos that showed Jill Woolley with other frail and elderly patients waiting side-by-side on trolleys crammed into the department.
The photos were taken on Monday, days before the trust declared a “critical incident” due to pressure on A&E.
