Submission to the London Assembly Health Committee on health impacts of gambling in London

21 November 2023

“The nationwide recommendations of the Commission on Crime and Gambling Related Harms stand relevant to London.

“Awareness and understanding of gambling harms should be promoted and embedded throughout services across the board, from GP surgeries to police custody suites.

“Timely identification and intervention will help people to access the support they need and reduce the chances of the development of more serious issues, which at their most severe may involve suicide or crime.”
