Engage Patient Guide


HILDA is a site for people living East Lothian which provides its users with information they can trust on equipment that they can buy or borrow to help them maintain and improve mobility. It offers an easy-to-follow online self-assessment to help pinpoint what kind of support would be useful and puts people in touch with activities, exercise and advice that will help keep them moving and enjoying life. Registering enables its users to get the most out of HILDA. Then they can plan and set goals that will help improve their mobility. They can change their goals as their needs change and they can also create a plan for friends or relatives. Assessments, advice and details of equipment can be pinned to their plan.


On-line ordering of prescriptions is therefore available again. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused anyone

Meningitis B Advice

We have received a number of calls from patients concerned about Meningitis B, and the age limitations on eligibility for the vaccination programme against this disease.

The Meningitis B vaccination programme is the responsibility of the Scottish Government, and they have determined the eligibility criteria based on expert medical advice. Further information on Meningitis, Meningitis B and the vaccination programme is available on the Immunisation Scotland website. This contains a Question and Answer section regarding the vaccination.

Please note that the NHS can only offer the Meningitis B vaccination to those children who meet the eligibility criteria as specified by the Scottish Government, i.e. to those children born on or after 1st May 2015.

If your child does not fall into the criteria, they can be vaccinated at PRIVATE PRACTICES in Edinburgh.
