Jockey Concussion Test Reminder + Concussion Bounty details


Baseline concussion tests for licences should be booked by jockeys. However, appointments for post-concussion testing MUST be made via BHA Medical Department: 0207 152 0138. Jockeys cannot book these appointments direct! This is partly due to the cost but also to ensure that jockeys have a neurology appointment in place. Any queries, please contact Helen Pavitt, Senior Medical Administrator in the Chief Medical Adviser’s Office at the BHA or Pippa on 0207 152 0138 e:

If you are unlucky enough to sustain concussion whilst race riding under Rules, the return of your damaged crash hat to the AJA at Crews Hill House will entitle you to an £80 concussion bounty which will be paid into the claimant’s Weatherbys account or by cheque if no account is held. Please contact the AJA for the appropriate form if you would like to take advantage of this useful scheme which will fund the purchase of your replacement crash hat. Please note: this scheme only applicable to diagnosis on the racecourse by the RMO and does not apply for concussion sustained off the racecourse.
