DoLS seminar held for second time on strength of demand


An event which analyses key changes in liberty protection safeguards under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) regime is being held for a second time due to popular demand.

The specialist Neurotrauma and Court of Protection teams at Sintons are hosting the seminar for a second time – the first was in York, this time it will be in Newcastle – which will look at the new approaches and how clients can best be supported.

The event – to be held at Sintons’ headquarters, The Cube in Newcastle, on November 3 – will hear from the expert speakers whose insight was so well received at the event earlier in the year.

Eleanor Tallon, an Independent Social Worker & Independent Best Interest Assessor at MCA Professional, alongside Susan McKendry, a specialist Court of Protection, community care and adult social care work barrister at KBW Chambers, will both again be addressing the event.

The seminar is the latest in a series of events held by Sintons’ nationally-known Neurotrauma team to examine many of the key topical issues affecting professionals working across the sector.

The team works closely with Sintons’ Court of Protection specialists to ensure clients who have sustained life-changing injuries and their family can be support throughout their claim and beyond by Sintons’ renowned standards of legal and client service excellence.

Alastair Elliot, a senior associate in the Neurotrauma team, and Court of Protection solicitor Sophie Moore are leading on the event.

“Safeguarding our clients is at the core of everything we do, and enables us to ensure their best interests are being protected – changes in the key regulations surrounding these DoLS measures are very significant and something everyone working in this area must be alive to,” says Alistair.

“In our initial event on this topic in York, the feedback from attendees was fantastic and we realised how very useful this was to our colleagues working in the field of Neurotrauma and serious injury, and how beneficial it is to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the very latest developments in this field.

“Our seminar programme is known for tackling the topical issues which affect everyone working within this sector, and we are delighted to run this particularly successful event for a second time.”

The seminar will be held at The Cube, Barrack Road, Newcastle, NE4 6DB on Thursday, November 3. It will begin at 6pm and last for around an hour, with refreshments served from 5.30pm. To book a place, visit www.sintons.co.uk/events or contact peter.jennings@sintons.co.uk or 0191 226 7907
