    Hi there 

    The answer is how long is a piece of string there are no fixed timescales 

    It will need calculating then authorising depends on their workload 

    Hopefully it won't take that long

    Welcome to the community @marlie16 :) It's perfectly normal to feel anxious over this, but hopefully it won't be too long. How are you coping in the meantime?

    Just to let you know, I've tweaked the title of your post slightly and moved it into a different category.
