    If what you received was a work capability assessment (ESA50 form) then it's a review as advised. This must be filled in and returned no later than the date stated in the letter.
    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.
