Mental capacity and deprivation of liberty

Author:
LAW COMMISSION
Publisher:
Stationery Office
Publication year:
2017
Pagination:
vii, 259
Place of publication:
London

Final report from the Law Commission's review of the Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS), which considered how the law should protect people who need to be deprived of their liberty in order to receive care or treatment and lack the capacity to consent. The review found that DoLS were overly technical and legalistic, often failed to achieve any positive outcomes for the person concerned or their family, and could not deal with the increased numbers of people considered to be deprived of their liberty following the Cheshire West ruling. The report provides recommendations for the reform of the legal framework and proposes that the DoLS should be replaced by a new scheme, the Liberty Protection Safeguards. The proposed scheme would cover a broader group of people, including any setting that might give rise to a deprivation of liberty and would also cover 16 and 17-year-olds. A draft Bill attached to the report provides details of the new scheme. The draft Bill also includes amendments to other parts of the Mental Capacity Act to provide increased protection for people whose rights to respect for their private and family life and their home, whether or not they risk being deprived of their liberty. The Law Commission also recommended that the Liberty Protection Safeguards should be accompanied by the publication of a new Code of Practice covering all aspects of the Mental Capacity Act. An impact assessment and a summary of the report are published alongside the final report. (Edited publisher abstract)
