I think the assessment's will continue under Capita and other's I read a longer version or tried yesterday, they've cherry picked the best bits on that blog. I've sat on the assessment stage of ESA for nearly a year without being assessed , I called the other day too see what was happening, they wont give me a date for a assessment only 'we'll get around too you in due time'.
My Contributions based ESA runs out in October, i'll have too claim JSA or Income support then regardless of illness although they've stated this is no different in terms of money of being on 'assessment stage esa' in cost in the report, or wait 6 months mandatory too claim ESA again.
There are currently 700,000 waiting for assessment
