The Liberty Protection Safeguards

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 received Royal Assent in May 2019. The primary
purpose of the Act is to replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) with a new, more
efficient way of authorising deprivation of liberty to protect the individual’s rights under Article
5, European Convention on Human Rights. Although the phrase is not used in the Act, the new
scheme will be known as the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).
