DOLS - Information for Care Home Managers

Applying for an Authorisation under the Safeguards


A revised set of ‘Once for Wales’ Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) forms have been developed to support managing authorities and supervisory bodies.


This will:

  • comply with legal requirements
  • ensuring consistency of practice
  • reduce as much as possible the administrative burden associated with a DoLS authorisation.

These forms are issued under section 7 of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970 and Welsh Health Circular (2015) 052.
Guidance on the completion of the forms has also been produced.


Important note:


Form 12 - Notification of the death of a person subject to the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. This form does not reflect the procedure required by HM Coroner for this area and does not contain contact details. Please continue use the form circulated earlier in 2015.
