Key changes in the Liberty Protection Safeguards – the new DoLS regime


Key changes in liberty protection safeguards under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) regime are to be analysed at an upcoming seminar.

The specialist Neurotrauma and Court of Protection teams at Sintons are hosting an event which will look at the new approaches and how clients can best be supported.

The event, to be held in York on July 5, will hear from expert speakers Eleanor Tallon, an independent best interest assessor (MCA/DoLS) and case manager at Social Return, alongside Susan McKendry, a specialist Court of Protection, community care and adult social care work barrister at KBW Chambers.

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

The team works closely with Sintons’ Court of Protection specialists to ensure a client who has sustained life-changing injuries and their family can be given bespoke support throughout their claim and beyond.

Neurotrauma specialist Alistair Elliot 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.

“With our event and expert speakers, we will analyse the key changes and how they will impact on how we can best support our clients.

“Our seminar programme is known for tackling the topical issues which affect all of us, and attract some of the leaders in their fields to help us all better understand them. We look forward to welcoming colleagues from across the sector to our latest event.”

The seminar will be held on Tuesday, July 5, from 6pm, at Tower House Business Centre, Fishergate, York, YO10 4UA. Refreshments will be served from 5pm and the seminar will last for around one hour.
