    Hi,

    Do you attend hospital and GP appointments? If you do then they will expect you to be able to attend the assessment for ESA.

    You can request a reasonable adjustment (RA) and see if that helps.

    No I don't go to see the doctor I can talk to them online or I call them  I went once to the hospital to get a diagnosis that's all  they told me to get a letter to get a home visit which I did

    Did the letter state the reasons why you can't attend the assessment centre? If it did and they still refuse try the RA route as mentioned above.
