Patient Participation Group

Welcome to the Rothwell and Desborough Patient Participation Group Page

Here you can find up to date information about the group, how to get involved and more!

We have two groups at present, a formal group and a virtual group. 

The Formal Group

Meets on a regular basis to work with the surgery to develop the services we offer and help us engage with the community.

We have to limit the group to 12 people due to room restrictions. 

The Virtual Group

They are contacted via email to give their views and opinions on various aspects of the surgery. They can also be called upon to join special project teams if we need more help to achieve a specific action. 

Members can be part of one or both groups, the only eligibility criteria is that you are a patient over the age of 18.

We aim to gather around as many patients as we can from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

At present we are accepting applications for both groups. To register your interest in joining the groups please download the application form by clicking on the link below.

If you wish to be involved in our virtual group then you can join by clicking on the image below to access our online form.

Please return the form to reception or email  it to rothdesppg@nhs.net. Please note that no medical information or questions will be responded to.

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form.
