I am wondering if there are any benefits that I could claim

I work as a nurse (22 hours per week) and I am struggling with arthritis in both knees. I have reduced my hours to help with my knees but this has not helped much at all. I do not drive so usually get the bus but I struggle getting on and off the bus so usually have to get a taxi. I am wondering if there are any benefits that I could claim some sort of disability benefit. Any information would be great, thank you.
