Nurses can now put their feet up.
Pat Bentley and Mary Morrison were given a warm send-off by colleagues after retiring from Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital.
The loyal pair, who were each based at the hospital for 28 years, received a bouquet.
Miss Bentley, who was a state enrolled nurse, was also given a figurine, and Mrs Morrison, a nursing auxiliary, received a digital camera.
Operational nurse manager Caroline Rudd said: "Pat is a great character who has a real interest in health and safety and Mary was known as 'mother' because she looked after everyone on night duty.
"We will miss them both."
