Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

Family in a park

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.
