If your sole or main residence is in a hospital you may be disregarded for Council Tax purposes.
In these cases it will be the hospital that is liable to pay Council Tax, but the bill may qualify for discount disregard.
A hospital is classed as: An NHS hospital within the meaning of the National Health Service Acts or a military hospital.
Fields marked with a * are mandatory
For guidance, the hospital must be
i) a Health Service Hospital, within the meaning of the NHS Act 1977. (Private Nursing or Mental Care Homes that are licensed under the Registered Homes Act 1984, fall under the Patients in Nursing or Care Homes disregard for which a separate form is available.)
ii) Sole or main residence as used in the above context is generally interpreted as those who do not retain their own homes and will remain in Hospital on a foreseeable permanent basis, and excludes those who stay in Hospital for only short periods. However all cases will be treated individually, and we will make a decision whether to disregard the person named for discount purposes after examining the circumstances and relevant regulations affecting the claim.
Please provide a copy of your hospital discharge letter
