signpostThe Danbury Patient Involvement Group was established in 1996.  We are a registered charity (no. 1099391).

Our purpose is to help patients living in Danbury and the surrounding villages by:

  • Raising funds to provide equipment not normally provided by the NHS.
  • Organising health awareness sessions to benefit patients.

The trustees of the Charity organise various fundraising events during the year including a quiz, jumble sale and other ad hoc events.  We also organise Health Awareness talks for local residents, to help them improve their health and well-being.  We support The Danbury Medical Centre and Wyncroft Surgeries, Bicknacre & Danbury and also the Danbury & Bicknacre First Responders.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eleanor Dove on 3rd September. 

Patient Involvement Group was formed in the late 1990’s and Eleanor was one of the founder members and Chair from its inception.  Eleanor was a driving force in establishing good relationships with Danbury Medical Centre  and Wyncroft Surgery.  Eleanor organised many fund-raising events and together with her committee raised money to purchase major pieces of medical equipment such as a Digital Camera for Community Nurse Team, Automated Defibrillators, 12 Lead ECG Systems and a Bladder Scanner.
Eleanor took a great interest in Danbury and surrounding villages and was very supportive of the community around her.  Ill health forced her to retire from our charity in 2012 and in recognition of her contribution over many years it was decided to make her life-time President.

Eleanor is remembered fondly by many in the area and will be greatly missed.
