At least you had a helpful response and NOT a copper turning up and taking them in... as does happen!!I had a message on the answer phone a couple of weeks ago to ring back dyfed Powys police " as a matter of urgency'". Thinking it was about a speeding ticket or something,I phoned next morning to find out my gun licence tan out in June . Told them very sorry but hadn't had a reminder ( ummm... Found it later...) and she said get the guns onto someone else's licence and storage NOW!!. Taking the forms in to the doctors tomorrow.
Its a PIA and it stops the GP from dealing with folks who are/may be actually ill. Its not a money making scheme given the amount of admin involved and the very low numbers of folks with certificates.A young man that I know is at one of the agricultural universities and has had to have his medical form done at the surgery that all of the students are registered at. There was quite a fee and given the number that are at the age where they want to apply for a license it must be a nice little earner for the practice.
The police should reject that form as its not signed by the GPA young man that I know is at one of the agricultural universities and has had to have his medical form done at the surgery that all of the students are registered at. There was quite a fee and given the number that are at the age where they want to apply for a license it must be a nice little earner for the practice.
Same here, but a bigger gap between the two lots of letters.I got two in the same envelope, one for S.G, one for F.A then a week later two more arived all dated same
Just had my renewal through the post yesterday. Big red form that needs filling in by Dr. If I hadn't been to the drs three weeks ago it was his predecessor I saw back in 2004.
On the front it says, I am applying for a shotgun cert etc. This form must be filled in by my GP and I realise there will be a fee from for filling it in and I am happy to pay said fee !!!(sounds a bit like the red tractor lot !) and no form means no renewal etc. Answers must be fact and not an opinion, 12 yes or no questions. And I will be £50 lighter for the privilege.
What gets me though BOLD words on the opening letter that they are busy and the completed forms and fees should submitted at LEAST 8 weeks before the expiry date !
Mine arrived with 7 weeks to go
Could not or should not? If there are no medical issues it's only name and address and tick six boxes. Maybe the doc gave permission. Where does the money go, Christmas party?The receptionist certainly could not sign the forms. If that is anywhere near true then it is a matter for the GMC
