David Cameron orders merging of health and social care
At the moment, health and social care - the help given mainly to old or disabled patients to help them continue to live at home rather than in hospital or nursing homes - are different systems in England. NHS medical treatment and domiciliary support, which is provided mainly by local councils, are usually not joined-up.
But Cameron has told the health secretary, Andrew Lansley, to drive through changes that health policy experts claim will make life more convenient for patients, improve care and save the NHS money.
