Wales publishes draft LPS monitoring and reporting strategy

Care Inspectorate Wales has developed a draft monitoring and reporting strategy for Liberty Protection Safeguards.

The aims of the LPS monitoring and reporting system are the following

  • People’s human rights are not being breached by them being deprived of their liberty unlawfully
  • To provide reassurance that the LPS are operating effectively
  • To prevent abuse (aligning with the Operational Protocol to the Convention Against Torture – OPCAT), including unauthorised deprivation of liberty in certain cases
  • To oversee, and identify national (Wales level) trends in the operation of the LPS
  • To promote improvement through identifying recommendations and sharing effective practice.

The Care Inspectorate, in conjunction with health and education regulators, has developed a short survey on draft strategy.

The survey covers the following three questions:

  • Do you think the approach to monitoring and reporting on the Liberty Protection Safeguards is clear in the strategy?  
  • Will the approach help to provide assurance that Liberty Protection Safeguards are being implemented appropriately in Wales? 
  • Is there anything we have missed and should be included?

The deadline for submitting responses is 7 July 2022.
