The Government remains committed to tackling gambling related harm. The NHS Long Term Plan announced the creation of up to 15 specialist problem gambling clinics 2023/24.

Work continues on phased expansion of these services, enabling the National Health Service to explore how best to use existing treatment models to reach those in most need of support. The NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20 – 2023/24 has committed to spending up to £6 million a year on gambling-related harms by 2023/24.
