Scottish Sports Concussion Guidance

The following guidance is intended to provide information on how to recognise sports concussion and on how sports concussion should be managed from the time of injury through to safe return to play.

This information is intended for the general public and for grassroots sports participants where specialists in Sports and Exercise Medicine are not available to manage concussed athletes.

At all levels in all sports, if an athlete is suspected of having a concussion, they must be immediately removed from play. If in doubt, sit them out.
