GambleAware has announced that John McCracken has left his role as director of commissioning for treatment services.
McCracken leaves the gambling harm prevention charity after three years, as he looks to pursue other interests.
During his time at the charity, McCracken led the early development of the National Gambling Treatment Service, working alongside the NHS in England, Scotland and Wales to commission innovate services to prevent and treat harm.
The work included implementation of the data reporting system GambleAware is using to develop the best practice standards for gambling harm treatment.
The charity’s director of education Dr Jane Rigbye, will take on responsibility for commissioning treatment services on an interim basis, while GambleAware said its “trustees and staff wish John well in his future endeavours.”
Last month, it was announced that Zoë Osmond will replace Marc Etches as the charity’s new CEO at the end of March, after Etches made clear his intentions to step down from his role back in August.
While also in January, the charity announced it received £4.5m ($6.2m) in voluntary donations from the gambling industry, between April and December 2020.
