What is a Relevant Person’s Representative (RPR)? 

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005 states that once a standard authorisation under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) has been approved the supervisory body (NHS body or local authority) must appoint a Relevant Person’s Representative (RPR) as soon as possible and practical to represent the person who has been deprived of their liberty.

The RPR's role is to observe if the conditions of a DoLS authorisation are being met. If the individual objects to their loss of liberty or placement then the RPR will take appropriate action on their behalf.
