MedCert is a private medical service for those who want to avoid any delays caused by obtaining a medical check from their current GP. Costing a flat fee of £50, and guaranteeing an expert response to police with a short turnaround time, our service is designed to remove the worry caused by the current administrative system.
If you require a medical report as part of the licensing process, and your GP won’t help, you can purchase our service, which works as follows:
We request your medical records, and your GP sends them to us, via secure electronic transfer or recorded post, within a month of receiving the request. Once with MedCert, your records will only ever be seen by a medical professional.
On receipt of your records, one of our doctors reviews them and creates a report that addresses the licensing criteria.
This report is sent to your firearms licensing authority and/or you, depending on the requirements of your local police force. The report is sent within a maximum of seven working days from the date on which MedCert receives your records.
We charge a flat fee for medical records checks, regardless of whether you’re renewing or applying for the first time.
If you are a member of a shooting organisation you may be able to benefit from a discount that they have negotiated with us - check your membership magazine or organisation's website for details.
