OHL High Intensity User (HIU) Nurse  

Registration: Must be RGN and NMC registered  

Remuneration: £30 per hour 

Hours: 10 hours a week 

One Health Lewisham is looking for experienced community nurse(s) to work within our High Intensity User (HIU) service. This is the third year of OHL running the project and has been proven to have made 69% change in A&E attendances. This project will offer a robust way of reducing frequent user activity to 999, NHS 111, A&E, GP contacts and hospital admissions, freeing up front line resources to focus on more clients and reduce costs. The service will use a health coaching approach, targeting high users of services and support the most vulnerable patients in community to flourish, whilst making the best use of available resources. 

We are looking for a total of 10 hours per week.  

The focus of the HIU Lead Nurses will be to: 

1. Identify. The top 100 High Intensity Users are identified utilising A&E data systems. Some additional clients are selected due to their vulnerability as opposed to chronically high use of health services.  

2. Personalise. The clients are contacted directly by a phone call from the nurse lead. The calls focus on the clients’ issues, identifying and de-medicalising their needs to uncover the ‘real’ reason for calling 999, A&E or an admission. 

3. De-escalate. Many individuals ring 999 or use health care frequently due to an escalation in their social, emotional, financial or family issues. De-escalation is facilitated by offering immediate access to an appropriate listening support service (the nurse lead). 

4. Discharge. From the project to local support services takes place when the client requires on-going support. Many clients, following initial support from the High Intensity User service are discharged without the need for follow up. Many are reconnected to their community with friends and purpose. 

5. Manage relapse. Once managed by the service, clients often begin to feel more positive, decrease their dependency and improve their personal outcomes. Relapse can occur when clients begin to feel isolated again, are unable to remain sober or feel they can no longer cope with their current situation. They may begin contacting 999 or attending A&E again but more often, these clients contact the service lead directly who immediately picks up their crisis and helps them navigate through the difficult time rather than the need to return to their old behaviour of attending A&E.
