Liberty Protection Safeguards: Implementation of the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019

Thursday 5 Dec 2019

The Studio Conference Centre, Manchester

Follow this conference on Twitter #DoLS

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 received Royal Assent on the 16th May 2019, this legislation will introduce a new model for authorising deprivations of liberty in care replacing DoLs with the Liberty Protection Safeguards. The new law will come into force in October 2020 running alongside the DoLs for the first year.

This conference will update delegates on the implications of the new Act and the implementation of the Liberty Protection Safeguards in your service.

“The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 has now received Royal Assent and become law. The legislation provides for the repeal of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) contained in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA), and their replacement with a new scheme called the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS)... The government has not yet announced the date on which the legislation will come into force. But it is possible that this could take place in Spring 2020. The government has confirmed that for up to a year the DoLS system will run alongside the LPS to enable those subject to DoLS to be transferred to LPS in a managed way.”
Tim Spencer-Lane, lawyer, Law Commission, Community Care May 2019
