Gambling with Lives sets out new care and treatment pathway

| By Robert Fletcher
British charity Gambling with Lives has proposed a new treatment pathway for those experiencing gambling-related harm.

The scheme would bring together people harmed by gambling and health experts, with the aim of providing a treatment and support system for people with gambling disorders and families affected by gambling.

Gambling with Lives said the service would work in collaboration with the National Health Service (NHS) in Great Britain and complement existing treatment and support systems.

The charity has applied for regulatory settlement funding from the Gambling Commission to support the project, with the idea of running a pilot of the scheme with partners in Greater Manchester

Insights from this process would be used to raise the standard of the system of gambling treatment and care nationally, including offering a model for making treatment and care for gambling harms a part of NHS integrated care systems.
