The PPR service will be provided on behalf of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) team which has a statutory requirement, under the Mental Capacity Act 2005, to determine whether vulnerable adults have the mental capacity to make decisions regarding health care and/or accommodation issues. Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards apply to anyone aged 18 and over who suffers from a mental disorder or disability of the mind – such as dementia or a profound learning disability who lacks the capacity to give informed consent to the arrangements made for their care and / or treatment and for whom Deprivation of Liberty is considered, after an independent assessment, to be necessary in their best interests to protect them from harm.
