The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 received Royal Assent on 16th May 2019. The Act is due to come into force on 1st October 2020.

The new law, known informally as the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS), will ultimately replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and place considerable new responsibilities on font line staff, CCGs, NHS Trusts, Care Homes and Local Authorities. The new Act was highly criticised on its passage through parliament but now that it is final, it is important that those responsible for implementation are clear on how to do this in a legally compliant way.

This one day conference will go through the new rules; how to prepare and plan ahead and will also consider the concerns and challenges which will need to be addressed. A central focus of the conference will be the rights of vulnerable incapacitated people and how front line staff can ensure they are best protected under the new rules.

Pricing £155 plus VAT (£186)

10% discount for groups of 10 or more in one booking (call 07341 277487).

This includes a conference booklet, a certificate, refreshments, and a sandwich lunch.
