I have such situation; I was about 4 years on ESA support group. In 2018 to me made revaluation, and transferred me to ESA activity group. I not agreed with such decision and gave appeal (after obligatory consideration). My case is in Tribunal, and I am in expectation of the decision. But, DWP, without waiting for the judgment, I appointed to me new work capability assessment. Whether new revaluation can be appointed to me? And what should I do in such situation?

I'm afraid the DWP are entitled to reassess your current award and you must comply or you risk your claim being closed.

Your appeal re-makes the Decision you appealed and is entirely separate from this reassessment.

how often DWP can do reassesst? what form does my GP have to fill? how I can know when and what will write my GP to DWP?

The DWP can reassess an ESA award at any time after three months have elapsed since the last Decision.

It's actually unlikely that they will contact your GP but if they do it will be with an ESA113 form, see

www.gov.uk/government/publications/esa11...thcare-practitioners

They can contact your GP both before any face to face assessment and after, the former is more likely.

if the last decision was wrong and matter in tribunal, then DWP cannot appoint other assessment so far there is no decision?

I understand that DWP can request information from my GP at any time. why you did not report that I can see any information which concerns me, I can see the first? what does your help consist here in?
