This conference will update delegates on both the implications of the new Act and the implementation of the Liberty Protection Safeguards in your service, and current issues with managing Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards during and beyond Covid-19.

“It is paramount that the implementation of the LPS is successful so that the new system provided the safeguards that are needed”

16th December 2021, Department of Health and Social Care

“It remains vitally important, both in the DoLS now and the LPS in future, to make sure people using services, together with their families, supporters and advocates, are kept at the heart of the process. The human rights and quality of life of many thousands of people made vulnerable by their circumstances depend on it.”

Care Quality Commission October 2020

“During the pandemic, the principles of the MCA and the safeguards provided by the DoLS still apply.”
