Any medical evidence submitted on your behalf will be sent to the Medical Advisory Service to be assessed. The Advisory Service will then decide how urgent your need is to be rehoused on medical grounds and what type of housing will suit you best. Assessment can take up to 6 weeks.
This department will be advised of any points and what type of housing you require under the medical award.
When we have received this, we will write to you advising you of any recommendation made. Then you will be offered a house which meets the requirements of your medical needs, e.g. ground floor/level access/near support.
If the housing you have requested on your application form does not meet the medical criteria we will contact you to discuss your requirements.
If you are not awarded medical points we will advise you.
If you disagree with the medical priority you may ask for your case to be reviewed by the Medical Advisory Service.
