Commenting on this Norman says:
"The provision of care for the elderly is an extremely important issue that I am often contacted about by constituents. Unfortunately the cases I hear of are all too often illustrative of the shortcomings of current care provisions.
"I am therefore holding this meeting in order to encourage a frank dialogue between the many groups that are involved with providing care and to try to find a way to improve delivery, particularly where responsibility crosses from one body to another as it frequently does. I hope that this promotion of dialogue and cooperation will go some way to making it easier for all of these agencies to work together more efficiently in order to provide a higher standard of care for elderly people."
