Public Health England. (2019) Gambling-related harms evidence review: scope. London: Public Health England.


This document outlines an upcoming review on gambling.

The aims of the evidence review are to describe the prevalence, determinants and harms associated with gambling, and the social and economic burden of gambling-related harms.

We are conducting this evidence review to inform what action we need to take as part of a public health approach to gambling-related harms. We hope that it will support policy-making and practice aimed at preventing and addressing problem and dependent gambling, and gambling-related harms.

We expect that the research will identify gaps in the evidence base and make recommendations for future research and data collection.
