She was taken to Ayr Hospital, which is next door, and her condition is now described as stable.

Superintendent Brian Shaw has said he would like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area of Ailsa Hospital between 9.30am and 10.30am on Thursday “and who may have captured the woman on their vehicle’s dashcam”.
