GB & England Hockey takes player welfare seriously and has been a primary supporter of the
2008, 2012 and 2016 Concussion in Sport Consensus Meetings. These meetings bring
together the world experts in concussion every four years to review the current evidence
surrounding concussion. Following a Consensus Conference, a position paper (Consensus
Statement) is developed summarizing the current evidence based on knowledge in the area
of concussion.

This concussion guideline has been updated to reflect the principles agreed following the
2016 Concussion Consensus conference. These guidelines are designed to be used by
Medical Practitioners and approved healthcare professionals. All other parties involved in
concussion management should refer to the guidelines for non-approved healthcare
professionals and General Public.


These Guidelines are meant to ensure that players who suffer concussion are managed
effectively to protect their short and long-term health and welfare. Scientific knowledge in the field of concussion is constantly evolving and the consensus process and scientific meetings will make sure that the guidelines keep pace with these changes.
