Minor head injuries

A bump on the head is common in people of all ages, and shouldn’t result in any permanent damage. Our heads are tougher than you might think and symptoms of a minor head injury are usually mild and short-lived.

Did you know?

Over 80% of all head injuries are minor with nothing to worry about and can be treated at home.

Did you know?

Children are more likely to sustain a minor head injury because they have high energy levels and little sense of danger.

If you're concerned about yourself, a relative or friend, call NHS 111 for medical advice, this free service is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

The advisors taking 111 calls are in the same room as those answering 999 calls, so if urgent attention is needed, they can arrange it immediately for you.
