    You are not alone with this. There's currently huge backlogs in a lot of areas and some are waiting more than 10 months for a work capability assessment.
    When you ring the health assessment providers they probably have no availability to offer a date. Unfortunately, there's nothing more you can do but wait.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Welcome to the community @l1am89 :) It's great to have you with us!

    As poppy123456 has said, we've had many members talk about the long waiting times they've been experiencing. I realise that doesn't make it any less frustrating, but I hope that it helps you to feel a little less alone. 

    How have you been coping in the meantime?
