    Abstract

    A local authority and its medical adviser collaborated to assess the needs of applicants who have special requirements for medical rehousing. Some characteristics of the applicants were examined, together with how successfully their needs were met. Over half the applicants were aged over 55. Some three years after their initial application 41% of applicants considered to have medical priority had been rehoused compared with 36% of those with no medical priority.
