About this event

On 24 May we’ll discuss the key proposed changes to the draft Code of Practice and Regulations.

This session will consider some of the most significant changes to the Code, including:

  • the “flipping”/changing the order of the capacity test,
  • further guidance on decisions relating to individuals with fluctuating capacity; and
  • additional guidance about when care arrangements will not amount to a deprivation of liberty, and when cases should be referred to the Court of Protection.

The session will also provide some insight on the draft Regulations, which will underpin the new LPS system. Rebecca Fitzpatrick (Partner and Head of the National Advisory and Inquests team) will be hosting the session alongside Julia Catherall (Senior Associate, Manchester).
