London Ambulance service was 'too busy' to respond immediately

We were called at 5.31pm to Uxbridge Road.

From the information received, it was established that the patient was conscious, but unfortunately because we were very busy we were not able to send an ambulance immediately.

We did dispatch crews at two different times, but they were then redirected to other patients who were reported to be more seriously ill or injured.

We arrived at the scene just before 8.30pm and the patient was taken to hospital.

The woman's condition is unknown.
