Firearms & Shotgun Application Pack

***********    IMPORTANT    ***********

DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION WITHOUT FIRST HAVING A GP/DOCTOR* COMPLETE THE MEDICAL INFORMATION PRO-FORMA WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON PAGES 18 TO 21

 

Lancashire Constabulary WILL NOT contact your GP to obtain these records on your behalf. It is your responsibility to arrange for your GP or another suitably qualified GMC-registered doctor* (including where a doctor is providing this service for a private company) to provide medical information to the police concerning your suitability to possess a firearm and/or shotgun. Please use the doctor's letter and medical information proforma which is part of this document, detach and pass to the doctor for completion. You are expected to meet the cost if a fee is charged for this. When the medical information is being provided to the police by a doctor from a private company, the doctor must receive the applicant's medical information directly from the GP practice and not via the applicant.

*A doctor with a full, specialist or GP (rather than provisional) GMC registration and a licence to practice.
