Introduction

ScotPHN has undertaken two pieces of work since 2014 on gambling.  A literature review on gambling related harm to inform a national project in this area (Allison Thorpe, 2014), and a scoping of what public health in Scotland should do (Michelle Gillies, 2016).   Both reports are available on this page.

Arising from the scoping, the need for a national needs assessment has been identified.  ScotPHN will seek to prioritise a needs assessment on gambling as part of its routine 3 year work programme.  For further details, please contact ScotPHN at nhs.healthscotland-scotphn@nhs.net, and we will be in touch.
