April 2023: The start date for the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) which are due to replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard (DoLS) has been delayed again by the Department of Health and Social Care. LPS is now unlikely to start until late 2025. There is also a possibility that it does not come into effect at all.
Below are a series of independent information sheets written by the authors of The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) Handbook on LPS that can be downloaded and used by any individual or organisation.
