LEGAL LEARNING SESSION: From DoLS to the Liberty Protection Safeguards

10/12/2021 09:45 - 11:00

The launch of the Liberty Protection Safeguards might have been delayed, but the proposed code of practice and regulations tell us much about what we can expect. Attend this session to learn:

  • How the LPS will differ from the DoLS.
  • The settings where the LPS will apply, criteria and duration for authorisation and which professionals will carry out assessments.
  • The role of social workers and the approved mental capacity professional.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: We are offering an early bird discount of £24 +VAT for each legal session until 31 August 2021.

From 1 September 2021, our standard rate, £29 +VAT, will apply for pre-event bookings. If tickets are available at the event, these will be charged at the on-site rate of £35 +VAT.
