I am due an ESA review next month unless it is delayed.  I tried to call DWP to confirm, but I was kept on the phone for 45 minutes without a repy, so I gave up.

Can I email them instead?  What is their email?

    I can't delete your thread, only the moderators can do that. Work capability assessment reviews have been suspended for coming up to 2 years. I'm not aware of them starting back up the reviews yet and if if they have there will be huge backlogs so i'd say it's extremely unlikely you will be reassessed anytime soon.
    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.

    I just called DWP and they said that they are going to review me, and to expect the form ESA50 next month.

    Although I don't trust what they say on the phone, I think they make things up.

    Did you want your thread to be deleted @spb1612? It's okay to ask the same question as someone else, so you don't need to apologise :)
