CQC guidance on DoLs and emergency treatment

Topics covered: Ridouts professional advice

As most providers will be aware, the Liberty Protection Safeguards are currently progressing through parliament and it is unlikely that they will become law until 2019. In the meantime, CQC have published a brief guide on DoLs and emergency treatment and providers should be aware of what it contains. There is information on the context, policy position and evidence required for both DoLs and emergency treatment.

A link to the guidance can be found here – https://www.cqc.org.uk/sites/default/files/20180817_9001518_briefguide-DoLS_in_ICU_v1.pdf
