Firearms Licensing

From 1 April 2016 new information sharing processes between GPs and the police were introduced in an attempt to ensure those licensed to possess firearm and shotgun certificates are medically fit to carry arms.

We have concerns regarding this process of assessing any of our patients for suitability in issuing them with a firearms certificate.

As such, we will not undertake such work having a conscientious objection to the holding of firearms. We also wish to state that we are aware of our responsibilities and obligations under GMC guidance on conscientious objection.
