    Hello Ianpdavies and welcome

    The phone call is in respect of the qualifying period for a change of circumstance

    A new condition is expected to be declared within a month
    A new condition has to be in place for three month and expected to last for at least another 9 months to qualify for an award

    It does seem that the length of time is excessive so it may be worth calling for an update

    Please let us know how you get on
