NHS staff will get higher pay and there will be no tuition fees for student nurses and midwives under a Labour government, the party is promising.
Labour said the policies would help address staffing shortages in England that had become a “threat to patients”.
The promises mark the first of what are expected to be a series of policy announcements on the NHS by Labour.
But the Conservatives said Labour’s nonsensical economic policies would put the health service at risk.
“A strong NHS needs a strong economy. Only Theresa May and the Conservatives offer the strong and stable leadership we need to secure our growing economy and with it, funding for the NHS and its dedicated staff,” Health Minister Philip Dunne added.
Cuts to services such as bin collection, planning and pothole repair amount to dismantling of core functions of local government, says report
English councils’ spending on neighbourhood services, such as bins, planning, potholes and leisure, has fallen by more than £3bn in the past five years, research has found.

Analysis of 4,637 people diagnosed in A&E in 2010 finds 41% had visited GP three or more times with possible signs of cancer
Thousands of people diagnosed with cancer in A&E every year have visited their GP three times or more with symptoms, research has shown.
The study found that 71% of all patients diagnosed in accident and emergency departments had seen their GP at least once with symptoms that turned out to be cancer. The remainder had never visited their GP.
Of the group that did see their GP with symptoms, 41% had sought help three or more times while 59% had seen their GP once or twice.
A hospital patient has been waiting nearly four years to leave hospital after being declared fit for discharge.
The unnamed patient, who has a “serious mental health condition”, learning disability and physical health problems, has been in a hospital bed for more than 1,338 days.
The patient is expected to leave hospital in “around six months”, after arrangements were made for their care.
The hospital is part of the Hywel Dda University Health Board in west Wales.
Conservative AM Darren Millar said the delay was “truly scandalous”.
Doing moderate exercise several times a week is the best way to keep the mind sharp if you’re over 50, research suggests.
Thinking and memory skills were most improved when people exercised the heart and muscles on a regular basis, a review of 39 studies found.
This remained true in those who already showed signs of cognitive decline.
Taking up exercise at any age was worthwhile for the mind and body, the Australian researchers said.
