National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Developing a hub and spoke model for problem gambling from 2019/20, with central clinics which have satellite clinics in neighbouring populations (NHSE)

Updates

May 2022

We have five NHS specialist gambling clinics in operation and in February, the NHS announced that these will inform the roll out of further gambling clinics, a further three clinics are due to become operational by late June 2022. The NHS have confirmed that beyond 2023/24, they will fund the 15 specialist gambling clinics, which are expanding across the country. Since Covid, due to patient preference, the use of technology such as Zoom, and Microsoft Teams has been the preferential method of communicating. Choice is still offered to patients over their chosen mode of attendance.
