Pledge that hospitals will improve care for the elderly
"Hit squads are to be sent into hospitals in an attempt to drive up standards of treatment for the elderly - with checks on conditions in care homes likely to follow.
"Plans for the biggest overhaul of the National Health Service for decades, to be announced this week, will set out moves to beef up its complaints system. As a first step, senior nurses will carry out spot checks on hospital wards treating elderly people, focusing on whether patients are treated with dignity and respect and are served nutritious food.
"The Department of Health confirmed last night it was drawing up proposals to extend the regime of unannounced visits to social care providers."
