East Lothian Community Health Partnership

East Lothian Community Health Partnership (CHP) was set up in 2005 to manage and co-ordinate NHS services in East Lothian. East Lothian CHP provides NHS services to the 100,000 people who live in East Lothian. The CHP has the same boundary as East Lothian Council. The CHP has worked closely together with Council and other statutory services, voluntary organizations and the community to develop health services in East Lothian and to reduce the health inequalities both within and between our communities.

The Public Services (Joint Working) Scotland Act 2014 will lead to the abolition of CHPs. In East Lothian this will be replaced by an Integration Joint Board (IJB) composed of Members of Lothian NHS Board and Elected Members of East Lothian Council. It is likely that the IJB will take on the CHP’s responsibilities in mid 2015.

Working with East Lothian Council

NHS Lothian and East Lothian Council agreed in 2013 to establish a Health and Social Care Partnership in advance of the passing of the joint working legislation. This was followed by the appointment of a Director of Health and Social Care who reports to both the NHS Board and the Council and the establishment of a Shadow Integration Joint Board. The Joint Director is responsible for all health services in the CHP and for Adult Social Work services. Click on this link to find out more about the services provided by East Lothian Council.

East Lothian Community Hospital

The new East Lothian Community Hospital will relocate services that are currently available at Roodlands and Herdmanflat Hospitals in Haddington. The hospital will also have additional services which will be repatriated from other parts of Lothian. Following public consultation, plans will be submitted to East Lothian Council. The project team working on the new development expects to submit an Outline Business Case to the Scottish Government for approval by the end of 2015.
