The launch of the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) might have been delayed, but practitioners need to prepare for their implementation. Attend this session to learn:

  • How the LPS will differ from the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).
  • The settings where the LPS will apply, criteria and duration for authorisation and which professionals will carry out assessments.
  • The role of social workers and the approved mental capacity professional.
