If they are happy to wait then they should but if not then the next ting to do would be to contact their MP.

Contacting your MP

I'm in the north of England and in the same boat. Still waiting nigh on two months after my assessment. My carer phoned up the DWP a couple of weeks ago and was told they'd not received the assessors report yet. I received my DLA payment as usual today so obviously they still haven't made a decision.

I think the "two to four weeks" that Gordon keeps talking about is not accurate, well, not up here anyway.
