    Have you appealed the ESA decision?

    If you're on a low income, you can fill in a HC1 form, which may give you help towards the cost of your medication.

    Sorry, it was a typo. It's a HC1 form. You can get this at the chemist.

    It should tell you on the letter they send you how to appeal.

    Whyyou're appealing and why you believe you should be on ESA. You really need to get proper advise over this. I've never had to appeal ESA; so wouldn't really know what you have to write.
