The article below clearly looks at a report  contentious data which it is in the interest of Government to challenge but it does strike me as highly likely that for the over 85s, for whom hospitals stays are shown to be largely a highly negative experience in terms of long term prognosis ( despite in many cases great care by NHS staff doing their best) so cuts in social care that lead to more  A&E visits and admissions - as all the NHS data show is surely something of great concern to us all.
