A Patient in a Hospital or Home

If a member of your household is a patient in a Hospital, Nursing Home or Residential Care Home, we may be able to give them a reduction on their Council Tax.

To qualify for a reduction the patient:

  • must be resident in a Hospital or Home (Nursing or Residential) for an indefinite or permanent period. Minimum stay to qualify must be 6 continuous weeks.

If you feel that the person, normally resident in the property, may qualify for a reduction in their Council Tax charge, please ensure all sections of this form are completed in full. Ask the hospital or home to complete their relevant section.

If you wish to apply for a reduction, please complete the following form.

Alternatively, contact your Council Tax Team who will help with your enquiry.
