    Hi @lyndastrang - & welcome to the community. Have you heard anything further since applying for ADP? It seems to have many similarities with PIP, where it's not about any diagnoses, rather how your disability affects you relating to activities of daily living &/mobility. How are you doing now following your knee surgery?

    Aw I’ve called them up each week asking if I’ve gave enough support information as they told me to get patient summary and medication list from doctors and upload to help them when case manager has picked up my case to make decision. Didn’t need verification from them as it’s passed that stage . My husband has gave brief  letter what my day to day is like also. I’m hoping with medical records showing surgery’s I’ve had and application should be enough for decision. I don’t know how long the que is taking to be picked up.
