The President of the Court of Protection has issued a preliminary judgment, Re X and Others (Deprivation of Liberty) [2014] EWCOP 25 outlining the answers to some of the key questions posed in the post-Cheshire West cases heard in June as to how a ‘streamlined’ Article 5 ECHR compliant process can be developed for the judicial authorisation of deprivations of liberty.

We have produced this document which provides a practical guide to such applications (and seeks to answer some of the questions arising from the judgment).
