The Welsh Government are consulting on new regulations which will support the implementation of liberty protection safeguards (LPS)
The new LPS regulations (External link) will provide important rights and protections for people who lack the mental capacity to agree to care, support or treatment arrangements, where these arrangements amount to a deprivation of liberty.
In Wales, Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW), Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), and for education settings, Estyn, are currently consulting on our draft monitoring and reporting strategy for the new Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).
Our draft strategy describes how we will discharge our responsibilities for monitoring and reporting LPS. This will inform Welsh Ministers, and people in Wales, how LPS is working in practice and help keep standards high.
