ESA back payments are taking too long to resolve, how do I chase?

Hi everyone, After waiting since July 2017 I finally won my disability appeal at the HM Courts & Tribunals Service in Ashford on 17 August 2018.
Now, today 17 Oct 2018 after phoning my C.A.B. case representative to check progress, I find that my case has been handed over to a department in Hackney, London, to assess back payments.
This is taking far too long to resolve. Nobody has so far has contacted me by phone or letter regarding the situation, C.A.B., Universal Credit or the D.W.P.
I have phoned these departments but keep being told it is in the hands of the other dept.
Nobody seems interested.
My C.A.B. case representative says she might contact our local M.P. about the situation????

Do I contact 'HM Courts & Tribunals Service' telling them that it seems the DWP are delaying payments?
