Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
Local authorities and local
health services are required to undertake Joint Strategic Needs
Assessments of health and well-being. This work is a continuous
process of assessment designed to inform decisions made locally
about what services are commissioned. The core aim is to improve
the public's health and reduce inequalities.
Findings from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and public
consultation are used to produce a Joint Health and Well-being
Strategy through Worcestershire's Health
and Well-being Board.
JSNA Summary and Public Health Annual Reports
JSNA summary reports provide updated
information on priority areas, as well as identifying any potential
emerging trends and threats that the Health and Wellbeing Board
might need to take into account. These are likely to include
co-morbidities and cross cutting issues.
Director of Public Health Annual Reports
It is a statutory duty under The Health and Social Care Act 2012
that the Director of Public Health for a local authority must
prepare an annual report on the health of the people in the area of
the local authority.
