Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS)

LPS implementation delayed - new date is now April 2022.

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 introduced a new scheme, Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS), which will replace Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).   

Code of Practice and regulations are currently being drafted. They are expected to be released soon.

While we are waiting for the Code of Practice and the regulations, we have listed some links to external LPS related resources you might find useful.

Please note that the links provided here are the views of the organisations/individuals who have published them.
