To Complete this medical a face to face appointment is not required. Your application needs to be assessed by a doctor who is registered with the general medical council (GMC) with access to your Full medical records (New applications) or Medical records with last 20 year history (Renewal applications). Please note for applicants in Wales a full set of Medical Records are needed for all applications.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange for information about their medical history to be provided by their GP (or another suitably qualified doctor registered with the GMC) to the police firearms licensing department dealing with their application.
When the medical information is being provided to the police by a doctor who is not the GP of the applicant, the doctor must receive the applicant’s full medical record direct from the GP practice and not via the applicant. For New applications your full medical records including LLoyd Geroge Cards are required. For Renewal applications the last 20 year Medical Records usually suffice. Please note for applicants in Wales a full set of Medical Records are needed for all applications.
When a person applies for a firearm or shotgun certificate or to be registered as a firearms dealer, the applicant must provide information to the police which will confirm whether or not the applicant is or has been diagnosed or treated for any relevant medical condition which could affect their ability to possess a firearm safely. This process includes verification of an individuals medical History from a GMC Registered Doctor (Usually your GP). Our GP at Just Health Can assist with this process in a quick and efficient manner and at low Cost.
