Medical Information

Head Injuries
 
Minor head injuries are common in people of all ages and should not result in any permanent damage.
 
The symptoms of a minor head injury are usually mild and short lived. Symptoms include:
  • a mild headache
  • nausea (feeling sick)
  • mild dizziness
  • mild burred vision
If you or your child experience these mild symptoms after a knock, bump or blow to the head, you won't usually require any specific treatment. However, you should go to your local accident and emergency department for a check-up. 
 
If your symptoms significantly worsen or you develop any new symptoms after being discharged, you should return to A&E straight away or call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
