I'm not sure what benefit you are getting at the moment alixelder. This is a complicated area and there are several different benefits. The CAB web-site at....

http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/index...e_sick_or_disabled.htm#what_help_is_available

offers a guide but it is probably best to visit your local CAB or Benefits Advice Centre yourself and discuss the matter. We can't really give specific advice on individual cases here.
