3.3.8 'Any other relevant matters' - para (d)
This paragraph authorises the delegate to consider any other matters which may assist in determining whether an impairment is 'likely to continue indefinitely'. It is important, however, to ensure that any such other factors are relevant to the client's particular situation (avoid relying on generalities) and that there is adequate and probative medical or other evidence to support the conclusion reached.
