    Hello @womble57 and a warm welcome to our community.

    As you can see, the delays we are hearing about vary across the country and so we wouldn't be able to give you a reliable time-frame unfortunately  :(

    Fingers crossed it isn't much longer for you though.  Good luck and please let us know how you get on.  Just to let you know, I've amended the title of your thread and popped it in our PIP, DLA and AA category which is our home for all things PIP-related.

    Take care and I hope Wednesday treats you well!
