Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said the UK faces a "very, very big challenge" with its "ageing society".
Speaking to Daybreak about the Queen's Speech, he said: "There's a lot of pressure on the [adult social care] system and one of things we need to be a lot better at, is joining up the health and social care system."
Mr Hunt added that the Queen will announce measures to help do this, so people no longer feel "pushed between pillar to post" through the "bureaucratic" social care system.
Nigel Farage said the focus on immigration and aspiration in the Queen's Speech showed that UKIP is "changing the UK national debate."
The Government has put new attempts to curb immigration at the heart of its agenda for the coming year, set out in today's Queen's Speech.
'Progress Please' probably best sums up business groups' polite but rather firm response to the Queen's speech.
