Psychiatrist makes urgent plea to NSW Government for domestic violence concussion policy

Dr Williams is urging the New South Wales Government to adopt a concussion protocol for family and domestic violence victims.

“I recently asked an emergency doctor about it and they said, ‘We don’t have specific protocol for those women, true, but we have to have one for sports people because they are very likely to go back out on to the field and are likely to be in a high-risk situation again’.

“I said, ‘Well, you are sending these women back home to their abusers aren’t you?’ and there was a pin-drop silence.”
