New guidance on the new Liberty Protection Safeguards process

Of interest to practitioners will be the LPS Factsheet Two featured in this newsletter – we reported on the first Factsheet in an earlier post which you can read here – this second Factsheet is a Walkthrough of the Liberty Protection Safeguards process. You can read it here.
