Dorrell: Social care system must adapt to meet demand

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.

Conservative MP Stephen Dorrell, who chairs the committee, said that the care system needed to adapt to meet growing demand.
