Event Type:
Webinar
Date:
23 March 2021
The LPS establishes a process for authorising arrangements enabling care or treatment which give rise to a deprivation of liberty within the meaning of Article 5(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), where the person lacks capacity to consent to the arrangements. It also provides for safeguards to be delivered to people subject to the scheme. 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.
