The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) provides a comprehensive picture of the current and future health and wellbeing of our local population.
In July 2022, the South Gloucestershire Population Health Intelligence Portal (PHIP) was launched. This portal is the new home the South Gloucestershire JSNA. The Population Health Intelligence Portal can be accessed here:
The aim of the Portal is to provide a one-stop shop for data and intelligence on the population of South Gloucestershire, enabling anyone working in health, social care, education or other public services to make evidence-informed decisions about service delivery, strategy and commissioning.
It aims to achieve this by hosting and maintaining various dashboards with high-level information that is refreshed and reviewed on a regular basis, while also serving as a gateway through which users can access more detailed information and resources, such as in-depth needs assessment and reports.
The Population Health Intelligence Portal should also serve as a resource for voluntary and community sectors to ensure that community needs are represented, for service providers to direct and enhance their services, and importantly, for the public to scrutinise local health and wellbeing information and services.
For further help and guidance on how to use the dashboards, please use the guide on the portal homepage. The guide includes a link which you can use to provide any feedback you have on the portal.
The Care Forum was commissioned in 2012 to research and write a report on community capacity in South Gloucestershire for inclusion in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).
