Medical verification reports

Nottinghamshire Police now request that you submit your GP Verification Report at the time of your application. It is important that you ensure your GP has forwarded the relevant report to Firearms Licensing prior to the submission of your application.

This will come into effect on the 1 July 2019 for GRANT applications, as Nottinghamshire Police will no longer accept GRANT applications for shotgun and firearms certificates without a medical verification form signed by your GP. Also, from 1 August 2019 no renewal applications for firearms and shotgun certificates will be accepted without the accompanied medical verification form signed by your GP.

To request this information please use the following form and take this to your nominated GP.

Please Note: no applications will be processed without this Verification Report and may be withdrawn if you submit an application without the supporting report.

Reminder: Honesty is the best policy

Applicants are reminded that it is a criminal offence to make a dishonest declaration when providing information to support your application.

The fact you have a condition may not necessarily mean your application is refused. However, a false declaration could result in your application being refused, your existing license being revoked and your firearms or shotguns being seized.
