Waiting over 58 weeks for pip tribunal

Options
Hi guys I’m new here, I received pip from 2014-2017 after a f2f assessment was turned down n refused, I lodged the MR and the appealed to the tribunal service nov 2017, I’m still awaiting a date! I called last week to be told it’s around 63 weeks waiting, surely this can’t be right! Can anyone share their waiting times or us anyone else in the same boat??
Tasha :)

    I'm afraid there's huge backlogs all over the country and some are waiting over a year for a hearing date. Unfortunately there's nothing you can do but wait to receive a date.

    I had a tribunal hearing in Jan last year 2018. I'd made my original application for PIP in December 2016.
    Waiting times are extremely lengthy i'm afraid. I was originall told in the June the wait time was 10 weeks and this just kept increasing everytime i called.

    Tasha, we're in N Wales too, and my son's just had his Tribunal this month after initially applying for PIP in Oct 2017, so it looks like quite normal up here...and good luck - his was very non-confrontational and the panel were very nice to him (& me, there to support and talk for him).
