A-Z of medical conditions
This medical guidance for Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance Decision Makers has been developed by the Departments Health and Benefits Division with help from experts involved in patient care. It contains background information on the more common medical conditions in DLA/AA claims, their treatment, the likely disabling effects together with the likely impact on ability to self care and get around. At present the guidance does not cover children.
The new guidance replaces sections in the Disability Handbook which will eventually be withdrawn when the new guidance covers all conditions presently in the DHB.
'Joint Hypermobility Syndrome'.
Thank you Lesley and Prof G for updating the info.
