Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) to replace Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLs): Royal Assent now received.
The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 has now received Royal Assent and the LPS will replace DoLs, possibly from Spring 2020 (although the 2 regimes are expected to run side by side for up to a year). An LPS Code of Practice is also expected to be published later this year.
