Firearm/Shotgun Licence Applications



Patients can now download, from the Police website, the Standardised Medical Information Pro-forma, associated with licence applications.

The Practice (a GP) will complete this Medical pro-forma in relation to an application for a shotgun/firearms licence or renewal of a licence, for patients.

THERE WILL BE A FEE OF £40 Payable for the completion of the Medical pro-forma by the GP.

Please also note the following for your information:

    • It is best not to send your application to the Police until the Medical pro-forma is completed and can be sent accompanying the application

    • If a Practice does not complete such Medical pro-forma, patients will need to make arrangements with another medical practitioner, and as that practitioner will need to see their medical records, it is recommended that patients sign up to on-line access to their medical records. Please ask at reception how to set this up.
