The Personal Independence Payment Activity 3, which relates to managing therapy including dialysis, assesses a persons need for supervision, prompting and assistance in managing their therapy at home. Therapy provided at hospital is managed by the NHS and whilst PIP sits alongside the support provided by the NHS it is not intended to duplicate that support.
