    • Abstract:
      Established as an amendment to the Mental Capacity Act 2005, the deprivation of liberty safeguards were introduced to ensure that anyone who lacks capacity to consent to their care, and was being deprived of their liberty, has rights equivalent to those held under the Mental Health Act 1983. These rights include someone to oversee any deprivation of liberty, the right of appeal and the guarantee of review of appeal in a timely manner. This article outlines how deprivation of liberty safeguards work, how a deprivation of liberty safeguards is applied for and obtained, what to discuss with the next of kin, and some special circumstances to consider. It also provides information about the criteria by which deprivation of liberty safeguards applications are assessed and the process by which this is done. This provides an overview for junior doctors working in secondary care, to increase their knowledge and confidence when patients require a deprivation of liberty safeguards application.
