Elderly patients will get personal NHS worker to coordinate health care, pledges Jeremy Hunt
Oliver WrightEvery vulnerable elderly person in England will have a personal NHS worker who will be responsible for co-ordinating all their heath and care needs, the Heath Secretary Jeremy Hunt promises today.
Warning in an interview with The Independent that dementia has replaced cancer as the biggest challenge facing the NHS, Mr Hunt said that the NHS must entirely overhaul the way it looks after elderly patients.
On Monday he will announce a review into all aspects of later-life care that is expected to bring forward recommendations in the autumn.
