Led by Peter Edwards and Lorraine Currie. Although LPS are due to be implemented perhaps in April 2022, there much is to be done before then. Some provisions, covering new roles and training, will come into force ahead of that date. The revised Impact Assessment was published in Autumn 2020. There is likely to be a public consultation on the draft regulations and Code of Practice, in Spring 2021 that will run for 12 weeks. Being aware of what is coming before this is vital. The Government has decided not to implement the contentious role of care home managers in England for now.

Areas covered include:

What changes we can make now to be ready

Statutory definitions

Responsible bodies

Conditions to be satisfied


Consultations with P and others.

Safeguards and representation


Reviews, renewals and variations

Mental Health Act 1983 interface


Good course, helpful speakers. Very useful and very well explained all throughout. I liked that it was interactive overall rather than having a chat box for questions. Great job!

The course was very clear and it met its objectives. I thought the course was structured very well and not having to travel to and from the course was a real bonus.

The course was very informative. As there is still a lot of ambiguity as to what the LPS will include, it was extremely helpful to have two very knowledgeable speakers explain what the changes (that we know about) will include. I enjoyed that it wasn’t a one person view and both Peter and Lorraine were able to give their own perspective to the LPS. Overall, I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it.
