Head Injury: Advice for parents and carers of children aged under 16 years.

About head injuries

This leaflet aims to advise on how best to care for a child who has bumped or banged their head.

Most head injuries can be managed at home. The traffic light guide in this leaflet will help you determine what you can do to help your child, or whether you might need to seek further help or advice.
