Patients at a Surrey hospital who have lived with diabetes for a total of 418 years have been given special medals.
Frimley Park Hospital patients have been presented with Alan Nabarro medals at a celebration held to commemorate those living with diabetes for 50 years.
Dr Tringham from the hospital said: "It is great to see so many of you here today andonly you really know just how much an achievement it is living with diabetes,day in day out.
"When you first started you would probably have had glass syringes and thick needles to sterilise - now those things are in museums! Who knows what advances there will be in 50 years’ time?”
