On 19 March 2014, the Supreme Court handed down its judgment in the case of “P v Cheshire West and Chester Council and another” and “P and Q v Surrey County Council”.  These judgments are significant in determining whether arrangements made for the care and/or treatment of an individual lacking the necessary capacity to consent to those arrangements amount to a deprivation of liberty for the purposes of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Supreme Court’s decision reflects an emerging line of decisions from Strasbourg which carries significant implications for how local authorities, care home providers, health professionals and hospitals determine their policies for people in their care.  Booking form.
