UK Government warned over Mental Capacity reformsUK Government warned over Mental Capacity reforms

Leading social care organisations, including UKHCA, have issued a warning to the Government over the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill, which has now reached the parliamentary stage. The Bill will replace the existing Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) with Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).

Some of the concerns that have been raised about the Bill include potential conflicts of interest in the assessment stage, and that it might undermine safeguards for those who are unable to make decisions about this own care.

More information can be found in a statement on the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group website.
