New CQC report

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a report entitled: “Monitoring the use of the Mental Capacity Act Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards in 2011/12”.

CQC monitors the use of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) in England, using data received from the NHS Information Centre, and the monitoring activity carried out by CQC inspectors.

The CQC has used this information to present practical expectations of providers, commissioners and CQC staff when using or monitoring DoLS and in ensuring understanding of the wider Mental Capacity Act.
