Gloucestershire Constabulary


Applying for or renewing your firearms or shotgun licence? MedCert provides a fast and efficient medical records check and report for police, without the need to utilise your GP.

There is a flat fee of £60 for individuals regardless of whether it is a renewal or initial application, and regardless of whether you require a shotgun licence, firearms licence or both. If you would like to use our service, please see further details of the steps below. If you are dealing with licensing on behalf of a business, please contact us in the first instance.

Please note:

If you live in South Wales, Gwent, Derbyshire, Merseyside, Nottinghamshire, Cheshire, Essex, or Humberside we will send your report directly to your firearms department once completed. However if you are applying for a licence from any of the following police authorities, please note that once you receive your completed medical form it is your responsibility to send this to your firearms department along with the rest of your application:

How It Works

Step 1

Click on ‘Order Now’ to be taken through to the basket page, then click ‘Proceed to Checkout’ to fill in the application forms. For a step-by-step guide to this stage, please click here

Step 2

Click through to pay. We use PayPal to process all debit card, credit card and PayPal payments.

Step 3

Your GP sends your medical records to us via secure electronic transfer or recorded post, within 28 days of receiving the request. Once with MedCert, your records will only ever be seen by a medical professional.

Step 4

On receipt of your records, one of our doctors reviews them and creates a report that addresses the licensing criteria.

Step 5

The report, in the format requested by your licensing authority, is sent to all relevant parties. The report is sent within a maximum of seven working days from the date on which MedCert receives your records.

As licence holders ourselves we appreciate that the application / renewal process can sometimes throw up unexpected niggles, and that every licensing authority is different. If you have any questions, would prefer a different payment method or to obtain your records by another means prior to using our service,  please get in touch.
