More about the programme

Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards - DoLS for short - used to be a relatively obscure element of social work and health care.  But not anymore.

 

A landmark legal ruling means that many more people who lack the capacity to consent to their care now need to go into the system.

 

That surge in demand has led to delays and to concerns that those delays could have a huge impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable in society.

 

Eye on Wales delves into the world of DoLS to explore what the explosion in numbers means for the people they're designed to protect - and for those charged with keeping them safe.

 

Presented by Nelli Bird.
