Deprivation of Liberty

What will happen after the Best Interests Assessor's report?

The Best Interests Assessor's report might say you are being deprived of your liberty and that this is in your best interests, the supervisory body will write to the managing authority to tell them and ask them to explain this to you. You will get a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Authorisation to make sure you are safe, or the report might say you are being deprived of your liberty but some changes are needed, for example; changes to the way you are cared for.
