    Treating someone who has hurt their head

    If you are with someone who has had an accident and has a minor head injury, they may not need to visit their GP or hospital. However, they should still be carefully monitored, and you should ensure that someone stays with the patient for at least 48 hours after their injury, and that they are in reach of a telephone and medical assistance.

    What to do next

    Anyone suffering from a head injury should rest and avoid taking aspiring, sedatives, sleeping pills or tranquilisers. You should also make sure that they don’t drink, drive, operate machinery or take part in contact sports until they are fully recovered. If you suspect someone has a more serious head injury, you may notice some of the following symptoms:

    • Unconsciousness
    • Difficulty speaking
    • Vision problems
    • Trouble staying awake
    • Fits or seizures
    • Vomiting
    • A lasting headache

    If the patient experiences any of these symptoms, you should always head straight to your nearest hospital Accident and Emergency department, as severe head injury can lead to serious brain damage.
