NHS Northern Gambling Service

Sent on behalf of Public Health Team, North East Lincolnshire Council:

The NHS Northern Gambling Service is a regional service covering the Yorkshire & Humber area, with a mixture of face to face and remote appointments. We see people with gambling problems, as well as those experiencing other difficulties such as mental health problems and suicidality. We also have a service for ‘affected others’ i.e. loved ones who are experiencing distress as a result of someone else’s gambling behaviour. The workforce is made up of specialist addiction psychologists and therapists, as well as lived experience. Services that are likely to come across people with harmful gambling include debt services, primary care, mental health services, IAPT services, crisis services, drug and alcohol services, housing and homeless services, major employers, sports clubs, and the criminal justice system. The service accepts direct self-referrals, as well as professional referrals. Please see our website for contact and referral details: https://www.leedsandyorkpft.nhs.uk/our-services/northern-gambling-service/
