Delays with work capability health assessments UC

I have recently started assisting someone who has completed their UC50 in mid May 2021 and they are still waiting for a health assessment. They first declared they were unfit for work 14/4/21. We have contacted both UC and centre of health and disability and have been advised there is a backlog. We have now made a complaint about the delay and have had a response, UC have contacted the CHAD and been advised there a backlog which has to be looked at in date order. We dont have any supporting medical information yet as there is a charge from the doctor and would look at requesting her medical records – I would be concerned due to having no medical evidence about asking to making a claim on the papers. Is there anything further that can be done to speed up making a decision on LCW?
