Choose Health, Choose ACE
Active Choices in East Lothian (ACE) is a joint project between NHS Lothian and East Lothian Council. We are here to support adults with long term health conditions to become more active in the community. It’s an exercise referral programme that can provide you with that extra information, support and motivation to choose health and step into activity!

We aim to help those with heart trouble, respiratory problems, poor mental health, weight issues, arthritis, diabetes, neurological conditions, and much more.
ACE is designed to help you fit activity into your daily life, at a reasonable cost and ultimately help you improve your health.
