Share by emailShare by email

Medical verification reports

Nottinghamshire Police will accept an application for the renewal of a firearm or shotgun certificate without first submitting a medical verification form or report, if your GP is not able to provide this at this time.  A report will still be required in the near future when your GP Surgeries return to business as usual. 

To ensure that your application is received safely it is best practice to send your application by Royal Mail recorded delivery service to the Nottinghamshire Police Headquarters at Sherwood Lodge.

The postal address for Nottinghamshire Police's Firearms Licensing Department is:Firearms Licensing, Nottinghamshire Police, Sherwood Lodge, Arnold, Nottinghamshire, NG5 8PP

All completed applications including the medical verification letter and full payment must be posted to the above address. Cash payments or hand delivered applications will no longer be accepted at the HQ Reception.

More information about how these changes affect your application are available on the Firearms, shotguns and explosives licensing web page, along with a template for requesting for this information from your GP.
