Joint strategic needs assessment

What is a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment?

A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an ongoing process by which local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and other public sector partners jointly describe the current and future health and wellbeing needs of its local population and identify priorities for action.

The JSNA is not just about health and personal social care services – it is also about the wider aspects of health including poverty, employment, education, public safety, housing and the environment.

The ultimate purpose of the JSNA process is to use the information gathered to identify local priorities and support commissioners to commission services and interventions that are based on need. This achieves better health and wellbeing outcomes and reduces health inequalities.

JSNA factsheets have been updated during 2017 using the latest data available.
