On 4 July 2018 a new Bill was introduced to the House of Lords to reform the current Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) system. The current DoLS system places a disproportionate and significant burden on the adult health and social care system and because of a current backlog vulnerable people are not being protected in line with their human rights. Close work with stakeholders, and following a Law Commission Review, has led to the reformed model which will increase the protection of vulnerable people, carers and their families, as well as health and care professionals.
