Part 3: LPS - its out what do you need to know?

28 June 2022

The much anticipated draft Mental Capacity Act Code of Practice and Regulations, including the Liberty Protection Safeguards (“LPS”), has arrived.

This session deals with what we now know so far about the finer detail of the LPS proposals, particularly focussing on the practicalities of implementing the LPS system.

The session references the numerous practical considerations relating to the LPS framework, including:

  • the intention of building LPS into other health and care assessments
  • planning/ review processes and managing the responsibility of health and social care professionals to make LPS referrals.

Ed Pollard (Partner and Head of the Manchester Advisory and Inquests team) hosts this session alongside Clare Shepherd (Senior Associate, Nottingham).

Liberty Protection Safeguards

Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards was due to transition to Liberty Protection Safeguards in October 2020 but delayed due to the pandemic. While the public consultation has now closed and we’re still unclear of what the final legislation and code will look like, it’s worth noting and keeping a watching brief.
