Hi, I received a text today saying they have received my report, however I was about to send them more information as when I filled in the original application form I didn’t need help with taking medication but now I do , so I won’t get any points for this as it stands , so do I send this info now or is it to late & will have to wait to see what I’m awarded then do a mandatory decision with the extra information, , many thanks

    It’s never too late to send extra information. Needing prompting with medication would score just 1 point. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Chemotherapy is unlikely to have an impact. What matters is what happens on the majority of days over a 12 month period.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    No because therapy must take place in your own home. As you go out to attend the therapy, it's not taken into consideration.

    Activity 3 – managing therapy or monitoring a health condition

    Notes

    This activity considers a claimant’s ability to:

    i. appropriately take medications in a domestic setting that are prescribed or recommended by a registered doctor, nurse or pharmacist;

    ii. monitor and detect changes in a health condition; and

    iii. manage therapeutic activities that are carried out in a domestic setting that are prescribed or recommended by a registered doctor, nurse, pharmacist or health professional regulated by the Health Professions Council;

    Without any of which their health is likely to deteriorate.

    This activity only applies to medication or therapy delivered in the home environment i.e. where the claimant lives (and may include care homes).


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
