So fifty quid and five weeks and it is done. Disappointingly it has absolutely no contact details and is hosted in Bulgaria. That plus my GP charges GBP48.00 and I prefer to know who holds a copy of my records means I would not go with it. If on the other hand, I had to pay GBP150.00 to my GP or he was a conscientious objector I may take a different view.

At the moment, and for the next several months, then on the same basis as Andy's point about lightening workloads, perhaps everybody should be using a non-GP service for medical reports?

The hosting company was indeed founded in Bulgaria, but they have servers in a number of country, including the UK.

This seems to show that Medcert are on a UK server, but IHNI if they get moved about.

But then I also HNI (and do any of us??) if the NHS use cloud services such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS, or use outsourced data centres, and if they do any of those things, where our records are stored anyway.

Do the police send you a form out to prove your club membership or do they just contact the club directly?
I've just completed my probation and paid my dues so i'm now a full member of my club but they seem to be under the impression they had to sign my application or the police would send me a form for the club to sign.
there was nothing on the application form for the club to sign I just put the club details down as my valid reason.

I've received my acknowledgement letter from the police and there was nothing sent with that.
i'd of thought they would just contact the club to verify i am a member.

They may contact the club but as the club is meant to inform them of the date you became a full member then you mentioning it on the form should point them in the right direction. (APPROVAL OF RIFLE AND MUZZLE-LOADING PISTOL CLUBS, Criterion I. - Home Office)

The Club Secretary should of contacted your Local licencing department and informed them of the fact you are now a full member. Its not up to you to do that. If you have been shooting full bore with the Club on MOD ranges or Bisley you should of also been taken through a safe shooters training and validation so the Secretary can apply to the NRA for a safe shooters card for you.

There should also be a paper trail to support your probationary training and validation. There should be a record of your application for probationary membership. Details should of been sent to your licencing department by the Club secretary. Before you even started your probationary membership a Police check should of been done.

There should also be a paper trail as to your training and validation to be eligible for a NRA safe shooters card. Your Club Secretary should apply for this on your behalf.

I am assuming this would be done automatically by your Club secretary. You might want to ask him. I also assume you have documentation to support the fact you have received suitable training to be accepted as full member. I also assume you have training material issued to you to testify that you have completed the safe shooter training and are eligible to be issued with a safe shooters card. Providing you shoot full bore of course.

As you have probably gathered I am a Club Secretary and currently overseeing the training of a group of probationers. There needs to be a paper trail and evidence that we are complying and jumping through the relevant hoops. I suggest you go talk to your Club Secretary and not try to get the answers you are looking for on a forum.
