To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what guidance and support her Department (a) is providing to and (b) has mandated from agencies managing assessments for (i) personal independence payments and (ii) employment support allowance for people with renal failure.
The PIP assessment is designed to treat people as individuals, considering the impact of their disability or health condition on their everyday life and how each claimant has personally adapted to living with a disability, rather than the disability itself. Therefore the PIP Assessment Guide takes account of the functional impacts of all conditions, including renal failure.
The PIP Assessment Guide can be found here: Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment guide for assessment providers - GOV.UK
For Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) Health Professionals also have access to the Work Capability Assessment Handbook which sets out circumstances when a claimant can be treated as having limited capability for work which includes if they are undergoing regular treatment including haemodialysis for chronic renal failure.
