Liberty Protection Safeguards

12 November 2021

This online event took place on Tuesday 12 November 2021 and is now available on-demand. The content in this recording was correct as of the original webinar date.

The Liberty Protection Safeguards are due to be implemented in April 2022. Before this time there will need to be whole system change, training and implementation.

Do you understand the changes this will mean for you and your organisation? This session provided a brief overview of what we know to date, what the new scheme will involve and what the respective roles and responsibilities will be. Was also an opportunity to meet with our expert panel. This is one of a series of sessions – later sessions focus on the detail set out in the Regulations and Code of Practice once these have been published.

Hosted by Chris Stark, a partner in the health and social care advisory team. Chris has worked in-house at large acute and mental health Trusts as well as in the independent sector. He also advises on all aspects of mental capacity and regularly appears in the Court of Protection representing both health and care sector clients. This was an informal and supportive environment where shared experiences and problems were solved with colleagues around the country.
