Description

An indication of whether the main/permanent residence of a PATIENT is settled ACCOMMODATION.

Settled ACCOMMODATION refers to secure, medium to long term ACCOMMODATION. The principle characteristic is that the occupier has security of tenure/residence in their usual accommodation in the medium to long term, or is part of a household whose head holds such security or tenure/residence.

Non-settled ACCOMMODATION refers to ACCOMMODATION arrangements that are precarious, or where the PATIENT  has no or low security of tenure/residence in their usual ACCOMMODATION and so may be required to leave at very short notice.
