Teachers should be trained to spot concussion in kids, say MPs as they launch acquired brain injury report

Teachers should be trained to spot brain injuries and concussions in children, MPs demand today. Helping them uncover clues as to pupils carrying potentially-serious head injuries is among measures aimed at saving the NHS £5billion a year. Others include screening all prisoners for brain injuries when they are jailed. One patient suffering a brain injury is admitted to hospital every 90 seconds.

And Westminster’s All Party Parliamentary Group on Acquired Brain Injury hopes to improve care as it publishes its Time for Change report, backed by about 40 MPs.
