Speaker - Tim Spencer-Lane, Lawyer at Government Legal Department (DHSC)

 

Tim is a lawyer who specialises in mental capacity, mental health and social care law. He is currently on secondment to the Government Legal Department (Department of Health and Social Care - NHS and Mental Health Team) where he advises on mental capacity law.

 

As a lawyer at the Law Commission, Tim led the review of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The final report (including a draft Bill), published in March 2017, recommended a replacement scheme called the Liberty Protection Safeguards, as well as wider reforms to the Mental Capacity Act. It formed the basis of the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019.
