An event in Great Yarmouth will raise awareness of the effects of problem gambling and organisations who become involved with the issue.

GPs and patients (over 18 years of age only) are being invited to find out more about the local and national services available to help people who may feel problem gambling is or could be an issue for them.

It is being held at the Grosvenor Casino on the seafront on Thursday June 29, 4-7pm.

Organisers East Coast Medical Practice have assembled a range of people including Victim Support, DIAL, The Anchorage Trust and The Samaritans to help GPs and patients find out more about local and national services available.

A representative from GamCare will also be available.
