Hi Brian,

If you have new illness/disability, you can put in a fresh claim for ESA.

Best wishes,
Rachel

On the assumption that six months have elapsed since the Decision you appealed, you can make a new claim for ESA.

If it is less than six months, and your GP is willing to state that this diagnosis represents a deterioration in your condition, then you can make a new claim on this basis.

Hope this helps.
