Changes to DoLS

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill completed its final parliamentary stage as the House of Lords and Commons agreed a final version of the legislation (24th April). It will become law when it receives Royal Assent and is expected that the new model will be implemented by Spring 2020.

A new model for authorising deprivations of liberty in care, the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS), will replace the DoLS system.

Government has confirmed that the DoLS will run alongside the LPS for a year after implementation to ease the transition of existing cases.
