Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The South Gloucestershire Health and Wellbeing Board has recently launched the area’s 2016 Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) which provides a comprehensive picture of the current and future health and wellbeing of our local population.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

It is used by health, social care and voluntary organisations as an evidence base for planning services to meet the needs of the local population and the priorities identified from the JSNA will be used to inform the next Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The production of a JSNA is a statutory duty which currently rests with local councils and NHS primary care trusts (PCTs) as required by the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act (2007).
