As part of this assessment, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may have considered the claimants ability to manage medication and monitor the health condition.
However, from November 2016 there was a change to the way in which DWP assess the need for supervision, prompting or assistance to manage medication and monitor a health condition.
The law then changed once more in March 2017.
Under the current rules, DWP will look at whether the claimant needed supervision, prompting or assistance to both manage medication and monitor a health condition from 28 November 2016 to 15 March 2017 only.
