    Well that’s a turn up for the books 😊 I’ve got an appointment first thing this morning with the doctor hopefully i can sort out my medication so I’m not spending my days as a 🦇 bat. Feeling terrible already just while I’m sat here. 😩. Is there a chance anyone knows how long it takes for an appeal with pip takes , I’m currently still receiving pip but the appeal is because i think they haven’t taken into account new evidence with my mobility. ? There must be a wise 🦉 owl out there somewhere.

    If you're at Tribunal stage then some people are waiting 1 year for their hearing date. The backlogs are huge all over the country. You can ring the Tribunal with your ref number and ask them approx how long they think it will be.

    For MR then there's no timescales. Good luck.

    I waited 11 months for my appeal which seems to be the norm unfortunately.
