WICS Law Commission Deprivation of Liberty Consultation Response

Following a formal consultation of the membership, WICS council has submitted the response below to the law commission to help in the drafting of the new “Deprivation Of Liberty” legislation.

Welsh Intensive Care Society 2015 Law Comission DOLS consultation response

This completes the involvement of WICS in this process for now – although we have offered further meetings or advice if the law commission would find that helpful. Council would like to thank all those that contributed to this process.

Although WICS’s response has been submitted, individuals who feel strongly on these issues may still submit an “individual” response before the 2nd November. The consultation document (available via the link below to the law commission website below) contains all the relevant information if anyone wishes to do this:
