my consultant wants a review as he thinks its depression waiting for referral letter from hospital

Hi
Once you have an assessment that confirms that you have mental capacity then you can ask to be released from the Care of the Official Solicitor - and at that point you can indeed make a new Will
Indeed once you have medical evidence of your capacity you can make a Will even if you are still under the Care of the OS
Please ask if you need further details
