Apply for medical points
If anyone in your household has a health condition that is being caused or made worse by your current housing circumstances, you may be awarded housing and health related needs points.
How to apply for medical points
If you feel you may be entitled to medical points, fill out the medical section of the council housing online application form, in as much detail as possible.
We will assess the application and send a full medical questionnaire to you by post, if we think you might be entitled to these points. The medical questionnaire needs to be completed and returned within 21 days, along with any supporting medical evidence from your health professionals.
Do not send appointment letters and prescriptions.
Will I be able to bid for a property while applying for medical points?
You will not be able to bid for a property while we assess your medical questionnaire, as we want to make sure everyone bids with the correct amount of points.
The medical questionnaire will help us understand if you need a certain type of home for your health condition, such as a home on the ground floor or that is accessible to a person with restricted mobility.
