Hi all, bit of a pickle here, im on u.c high rate and pip both lowest,i have a carer who also has another job but fits me in which is great. Recently his asthma has really played up, in and out of hospital, injections 1 a month,loads of other meds,his under the brompton, he has been off work from his full time job for about 4 wks now and has been given another month because as soon as he starts to lower his dose of steroids his peak flow is very low and ends up in hospital. Do you think he would be entitled to pip considering how much time his off from work? Any info would be great. Thanks
