I've recently had assessments for both of these within a week of each other. Does anyone know how long it takes tho hear back from them. Also what do I d foo if they are cancelled as I can't work. Any advice welcome.

    It varies generally speaking you can expect to  wait three to four weeks before knowing .  After my last ESA assessment they rung me up the next day with a decision which surprised me but you never can tell
