Open consultation Changes to the MCA Code of Practice and implementation of the LPS

After a long delay, the government has launched a public consultation (opens new window) on proposed changes to the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) Code of Practice for England and Wales.

The consultation will run for 16 weeks until 7 July 2022. Alongside the consultation are six sets of draft regulations which will underpin the LPS. Four of these will apply in England only, and the remainder will apply to both.
