A new government directive was sent out to the police forces in August. ShootCert understands…
The need for a medical certificate/report for shotgun and firearms license applications first became necessary in 2016 when police forces required medical input from GPs. This occurred after an agreement between the Home Office and the British Medical Association (BMA).
However, the BMA subsequently withdrew from that arrangement, allowing any GP to refuse to provide an applicant with the requested medical certificate. This ultimately leaves the applicant high and dry. For more information, please refer to this page on the BASC website: https://basc.org.uk/med/
