LPS likely to be delayed until the Autumn, experts suggest

The new Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) are due to come into force next April, replacing existing Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS), to protect people receiving care’s human rights. However, following a change in ministerial personnel and with a new COVID variant to contend with, many in the sector now believe the implementation of LPS will be put back until at least the Autumn. With no sign of a public consultation or a code of practice outlining the details of the changes, it is difficult for care home providers to know what the changes could mean for them. Read the most up-to-date information and expert insight on LPS in our exclusive online feature by CHM freelance writer Eleanore Robinson.
