DoLS Rights Leaflet – this has been designed by Steven Richards and Aasya Mughal authors of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Handbook. It follows the format of the equivalent rights leaflets under the Mental Health Act. Key information on the rights of a person under DoLS is provided. It is designed to be read by the person themselves, their representative and staff of the care home or hospital.
