Care for elderly 'let down by fragmented system'
Older people are being let down by a social care system in which they are "passed like a parcel" between services, a committee of MPs has said.
The Commons health select committee wants local areas in England to deliver "joined-up" care, health and housing.
The committee's report said that the Health and Social Care Bill - currently making its way through Parliament - would not simplify a fragmented system.
