This chapter explains the current understanding of what the replacement for DoLS, the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS), will look like. It will set out the LPS as specified in Schedule AA1 of the MCA and the likely guidance for practice from the draft revised MCA Code and LPS implementation documents available for consultation in April 2022. The chapter will also consider the potential future roles for BIAs, whether as frontline health and social work professionals completing necessary and proportionate assessments, as those conducting pre-authorisation checks of LPS assessments or as Approved Mental Capacity Professionals (AMCPs) working with more complex assessments. The chapter will consider the new learning that BIAs will need to ensure that they are ready for whatever the future holds for the role.
