Following the recent message in GPC news regarding the introduction of a new firearms licensing process, we are now able to provide the details of the new process which is available on the BMA website (this guidance applies for England, Wales and Scotland). This webpage also provides links to more detailed Home Office guidance for GPs and all the relevant forms.
We are aware that many GPs will have concerns over the new process and those who have been involved in discussions with the Home Office share these frustrations. We will continue to raise your concerns with the Home Office on the new process and seek solutions where possible. We therefore encourage you to give us feedback as you go through the new process – please direct any comments or questions to email@example.com.
