Two private hospitals commemorated 500 years of service at a joint celebration held in Woburn.
Staff from BMI Saxon Clinic in Milton Keynes and BMI Manor in Biddenham, Bedford, attended the evening when loyalty pins were presented to people with five to 25 years of service.
The awards were presented by BMI Group Chief Executive Stephen Collier.
BMI Saxon Clinic Executive Director Rod Morphew said: “It was a fantastic evening and a great way to say thank you to our staff for their loyal and enthusiastic service. It was also enjoyable to meet up with our colleagues from BMI Manor.”
