Model Kerri Nicole Blanc spent more than 24 hours on a trolley in a hospital corridor while waiting to have her appendix removed this weekend.

The Kildare native shared the photo yesterday morning after she had waited for the appendectomy operation.

"After 28 hours left on a trolley in the hospital corridors, as they had no bed, I finally had my appendix out at midnight before it exploded," she wrote.

"Doing great, thanks for all the messages," she continued.

It comes days after a HSE performance report revealed that 3,330 patients waited more than 24 hours to be seen in accident and emergency departments in August.
