Durham Constabulary and Medical Examinations

“In partnership with Durham Constabulary and after consultation with Durham County Council following the publication of a Domestic Homicide Review, County Durham & Darlington LMC has agreed to pilot a new process for providing medical information about applicants for firearms certificates”

Firearms UK are of the same view expressed by some other organisations in that Durham Constabulary and County Durham & Darlington LMC have exceeded their remit and that requirements under existing law only require a disclosure of medical conditions. Application authorities must then make judgement if the opinion of Medical Practitioners is to be sought.

Firearms UK advise that any applicant who is approached to participate in this trial contacts any Shooting Organisation they may be a member of and seek opinion and assistance, or seek independent legal advice from a specialist law firm before accepting any obligation to comply with the trial.
