We may be able to give extra priority if you, or someone that is moving with you, has a medical condition. This depends on:
- Your current home is making it worse
- A move would improve the condition or make it easier to manage
For us to assess whether we can award you a medical priority, you will need to complete a medical form.
This must include supporting evidence from:
- A consultant
- An occupational therapist
- A consultant psychiatrist
- Another qualified professional
They will need to confirm:
- Your medical conditions
- How your current home is affecting your medical condition
- How a move to a different home would improve your condition or make it easier to manage
Making a decision
Once we receive your medical form and supporting evidence, we may either:
- Refer it to the council’s medical referee for assessment
- Assess it at the next monthly medical panel
Once submitted, it should take us 10 days for us to make a decision, tell you what that decision is, and if we recommend for you to get extra priority.
If a move won't improve your medical condition or make it easier to manage, we will not give you medical priority.
