Information for professionals

Professionals such as social care workers are required to consider any issues in relation to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards.

You can find more information on the initial page about Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. There is also the Code of Practice in relation to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty.

If you believe that you have witnessed a deprivation of liberty for someone without capacity to consent, and the Managing Authority are not taking appropriate action, you can apply to Derby City Council (the Supervisory Body) yourself. Please see the Information for customers, families, friends or carers page for letters to request an assessment or review.
