Online forms: Application for discount or exemption for long term hospital patients

Guidance notes

If a property is left empty by someone who has been in hospital for a long time, such property is exempt from council tax. Also, when counting the number of adults living in a property, such person would not be included. This exemption does not apply in cases where someone has a short stay in hospital.

To complete this form you will need:

  • The date of admission to hospital
  • The address of the hospital
  • The ward number 
  • The name of the consultant/doctor providing care
