Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) – CPA/ DHSC webinar – hearing from the frontline in social care§

The Department for Health and Social Care and the Ministry of Justice has recently launched a public consultation on the proposed changes to the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) Code of Practice, including guidance on the new LPS system, which will run for 16 weeks up until 7th July 2022.

The DHSC are keen to hear from and engage with, a range of different people who interact with the LPS in order to understand whether the policy they have set out in the draft Code of Practice and regulations will help to create a system that works effectively.

CPA are delighted to host this session, in which the team from DHSC will set out what the key differences between the current DoLS system and LPS will be for professionals who are working on the front line and delivering the LPS in their day-to-day roles, and how it might affect your organisation.

The webinar will offer an overview of the proposed LPS process & then look at some specific areas of LPS policy, before opening up to feedback from the staff and practitioners whose roles will be directly impacted by the policy, to get a sense of how the policy will work in practice on the ground.

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.§

Changes to the MCA Code of Practice and implementation of the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS)§

The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) is delighted to offer three webinars on the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) Consultation, hosted by the CPA and our Mental Capacity & LPS expert, Rachel Griffiths.

Each webinar focuses on what LPS means for different parts of the sector.

  • the first is what LPS means for home care,
  • the second for care homes, and
  • the third is for Supported Living and Extra Care schemes.

The webinars offer the chance to explore the LPS proposals in more detail, understand what it means for each of the three parts of the sector (homecare, care home, SL & ECH), and ask all your questions.

The webinars last an hour.
