Costing a flat fee of £60 +VAT, and guaranteeing an expert response to police in the format they require, our service is designed to remove the worry caused by the current administrative system.

Founded in 2019, MedCert invented the private medical solution for licence applicants and remain the trusted original provider.

How It Works

You now need medical verification report as part of the licensing process, If your GP won’t help, you can purchase our service, which works as follows:

  • Step One

    We place a request for your medical records on your behalf and the record holder is legally required to send these within a month of receiving the request. In our experience, however, it can take longer - particularly if your medical record is fragmented. Once with MedCert, your records will only ever be seen by a medical professional.

  • Step Two

    On receipt of your records, one of our doctors reviews them and creates a report that addresses the licensing criteria. Should your records be incomplete MedCert will work with your surgery, the wider NHS and all other relevant parties to retrieve the necessary information. On average our entire process takes 6-8 weeks, however there may be delays caused by the NHS and other parties which are outside our control.

  • Step Three

    Following the new legislation you must send the completed proforma along with your renewal or grant application. We hold a reference copy should you or your firearms licensing unit require it at any stage.
