What you need to complete the form

To complete this form you will need:

  • your housing application reference number (you must be an existing housing applicant)
  • details of your medical condition or disability
  • details of any treatment you are receiving, eg medication
  • contact information for your doctor

You will also need to describe how your medical condition or disability affects your housing situation.

How the medical assessment affects your housing application

We give people priority on the housing list if they have medical and disability needs.

Your form will be sent to the council's medical adviser who will decide if your application should be given priority.

We will give recommendations affecting the housing that you can bid for, for example if you need ground floor or wheelchair-accessible housing.

The medical assessment can also affect the size of the accomodation you could be offered.
