Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer will outline plans on Monday to get the NHS “back on its feet” if his party wins the next general election, by pledging to cut waiting times and reduce deaths from cancer, heart disease and suicide.

In a speech, Starmer will argue that the future of the NHS will be “on the line” at the election, which is expected next year, and warn that the health service is not sustainable unless “serious, deep, long-term changes” are made.

Starmer will pledge to meet NHS cancer targets, ensuring that patients are seen on time and diagnosed early.
