Jeremy Hunt: Social care system is 'bureaucratic'

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.
