Liberty Protection Safeguards - implementation delayedLiberty Protection Safeguards - implementation delayed

According to Community Care, councils have been told by the government "not to prioritise" implementing the Liberty Protection Safeguards which were due to go-live from October 2020. No further information has been given about when to expect the new arrangements to be put in place.
