    Have you actually received any ESA? What does the P45 say?

    Another thread of yours suggests that you’re potentially still receiving SSP from your employer. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/86501/p45-ssp1-form#latest
    As advised you can’t receive payments from ESA while still claiming SSP.

    What does the P45 show? If it shows nil then no harm is done. I imagine it has accidentally been generated because your claim has been closed as you are not eligible due to being in receipt of SSP.

    If you are within three months of the end of your SSP and have form SSP1 from your employer you can make an advance claim for ESA but are not entitled to e paid anything until the SSP has ended.

    We can only speculate as to why GP has written they will not need to assess you again. Note that this doesn't mean the same thing as they will not issue a Fit Note. It may mean that they are happy to issue another Fit Note without seeing you again. Only they can tell you.

    I do apologise for the tone of the post from @woodbine. I have no idea whether you have been discriminated against or not but it can certainly feel like that when medical professionals repeatedly make such minimal efforts to overcome language barriers or to comply with the Equality Act 2010. 

    I come across this sort of scenario in work most weeks and have vivid memories of a 9 year old child with no English being left alone in a hospital ward to cry all night long in front of staff to whom it did not once occur they could get an interpreter.

    Whilst I understand your frustration it would help if you didn’t post in capital letters as it looks like you’re shouting and also makes it harder to read for lots of people. 

    I could guess at why your GP has written the above but the only person who can answer your question really is your GP. You could ask your GP for an explanation or ask to move to another GP within the practice. You could also move GP but I’d exhaust other things first as most medical practices are not taking on new patients at a time when they often can’t see the ones they have face to face. 

    I would suggest you get some advice about enforcing your rights under the Equality Act with respect to having an interpreter. However, many advice services like Citizens Advice have similar issues with funding things like interpretation so I am going to suggest PALS at your local hospital and perhaps a local authority advice service if there is one near you. The latter will be able to access interpretation and will then be able to reinforce how important that is to other services in a better position to give you advice on health. Start with https://advicelocal.uk and see what you can find.
