Firearms Certificates

Requests for completion of firearms certificates for patients of the sides medical centre

The GPs Partners at The Sides Medical Centre have taken the decision to refuse to engage in the firearms certification process on grounds of conscientious objection because of ethical beliefs. A GP practice does not need to arrange for alternative provision of a report.

Greater Manchester Police have been informed of this decision.

If access to a firearm is a professional requirement – such as for gamekeepers and farmers – our doctors will assist applicants in finding a colleague to help.
