Firearms License Policy

The Burma Hills Surgery Doctors will no longer provide medical reports in support of firearm licence applications nor act as referees (persons of good standing) or countersign firearm licence application forms due to our conscientious objections to the holding of firearms.

We understand that this may be disappointing for some patients. We are aware of our responsibilities and obligations under General Medical Council guidance on conscientious objection. We follow British Medical Association (BMA) and Local Medical Committee (LMC) advice by issuing patients with a free of charge letter addressed to Thames Valley Police explaining our conscientious objection.

Thames Valley Police may advise the patient to obtain a copy of their medical records. If this is the case then you can request this via a Subject Access Request (SAR). Please ask for a form from our receptionists.
