STAFF at Denbigh and Ruthin hospitals have been marking the NHS turning 70-years-old.

The NHS turned 70 last Thursday.

To celebrate, a range of activities have been taking place in Denbigh and Ruthin.

At Denbigh Community Hospital - also known as Denbigh Infirmary - a tree was planted by the hospital's League of Friends and children from Ysgol Frongoch and Ysgol Pendref sang for patients.

NHS themed bunting was also made by pupils at Ysgol Frongoch and staff enjoyed a slice a cake.

At Ruthin Community Hospital, a toast was raised to current staff who have more than 1616 years of combined service to the NHS.

Former members of staff joined in the celebrations and a drone was used to take a picture of staff.
