About the Liberty Protection Safeguards conference

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 received Royal Assent on the 16 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. Learn more.
