High Intensity Use
Our High Intensity Use Service (HIU) works in partnership with patients, medical and community services in Tameside.
We want to understand the reasons why you use emergency service frequently. We will address any social issues that may be having a negative impact on your daily life and contributing to frequent A&E admissions.
Our team will get to know you better so we can understand how best we can support you. To do this, we’ll meet with you where you feel most comfortable.
We will support you by:
- Identifying and resolving the issues you want to address
- Providing access to the most appropriate services in the community for you
- Reducing your A&E attendances and helping you to feel better.
A safe place for mental health support: an alternative offer to A&E.
