Access to a Better Life in East Lothian
Welcome to A Better Life in East Lothian; the digital platform for the East Lothian Rehabilitation Service. This website was formerly known as "Help from HILDA". We aim to provide you with the information and tools you need to manage your health and wellbeing, and to be a resource if you care for others.
As part of the East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership, we provide rehabilitation to the residents of East Lothian. On this site you will find lots of information to enable you to try things for yourselves, when it is convenient to you, helping to keep you as active and independent as possible, for as long as possible.
Please explore our site and make use of any of the guidance and self-help information. East Lothian residents can contact us directly if after exploring the site should you feel you still need to see one of our team.
