The National Health Service (NHS) has launched a treatment service for British children who are seriously addicted to computer games.

It comes after the NHS announced in June that children with gambling addiction could get access to professional treatment via a dedicated gambling clinic.

The World Health Organisation describes “gaming disorder” as a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour so severe that it takes “precedence over other life interests.”

“Health needs are constantly changing which is why the NHS must never stand still – this new service is a response to an emerging problem, part of the increasing pressures that children and young people are exposed to these days. However, the NHS should not be left to pick up the pieces – gambling and internet firms have a responsibility to their users as well as their shareholders and should do their utmost to prevent rather than cash in on obsessive or harmful behaviour,” Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS said.

“Compulsive gaming and social media and internet addiction is a problem that is not going to go away when they play such a key part in modern life,” Claire Murdoch, NHS national mental health director said.

Up to 14 new adult NHS gambling clinics are being opened across the UK. The Northern Gambling Service clinic in Leeds is the first outside of London and opened last month.

SIS (Sports Information Services) has today announced the move to close down all non-essential services and to furlough a significant number of staff effective immediately.

With the suspension of almost all live racing worldwide and the closure of a significant number of worldwide retail betting outlets, SIS has taken this action to protect its long term future and to be ready for the resumption of normal service for customers and partners when it becomes appropriate.

In this interim period, SIS continues to supply online content to operators while that content is live. All services to retail operators will be suspended.

Richard Ames, CEO of SIS, said: “SIS is moving into an interim period of hibernation in these extraordinary times. I am pleased to be able to confirm that our intention is to come back just as strongly as before and to be back up and running to serve the needs of our customers as soon as live racing content returns to action.

“We are taking this action to protect the business and to preserve the jobs of our hard-working team. I thank each of them for their fantastic commitment to continuing to service our content partners and customers throughout the last challenging weeks and look forward to welcoming them back into the business as soon as possible.”
