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 £60, 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.
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. They are legally required to send this 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. Should your records be incomplete MedCert will work with your surgery, the wider NHS and all other relevant parties to retrieve the necessary information.
This report is sent to your firearms licensing authority and/or you, depending on the requirements of your local police force.
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.
