    I think
    "There is a woman wants to see you."
    or even
    "There is a woman as wants to see you."
    would come under the category of old-fashioned lower-class English.

    Just for interest:

    As in Old English, omission is heavily constrained. The finite verb of the relative clause is almost always a stative verb, usually the verb to be or a verb expressing existence in time or place. These zero-subject relative constructions therefore closely resemble the zero-type still acceptable in colloquial present-day English, which is introduced by there is or it is, as in 'There is a woman wants to see you'
