Applications to continue the deprivation of liberty of the 17 1/2 year old Patient and to continue his current placement. Orders were made accordingly.
The Patient is 17 1/2 years old and his behavioural issues are such that it is no longer safe for him at home with his adoptive parents and siblings. An interim order to deprive him of his liberty and accommodate him in a highly supervised placement was made and this hearing was to determine whether that deprivation of liberty should continue against the Patient's wishes.
A deprivation of liberty order was made for one year. It was very clear that it was in P's best interests to remain in an environment in which he can be protected from his own impulsivity and where others are protected. The very high levels of supervision were necessary and proportionate in the particular circumstances of this case.
