The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 requires NHS primary care trusts and local authorities to produce a joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA).
The JSNA identifies 'the big picture' in terms of health and wellbeing needs and inequalities of a local population and informs future service planning taking into account evidence of effectiveness.
The JSNA assesses the health and wellbeing of the local community. It is an ongoing process that involves identifying present and future needs of the local population across a number of priority areas including health, education and housing.
The JSNA looks at what Croydon's population will look like in the next three to ten years and how this will affect demand for key services.
The JSNA is a statutory duty for local authorities and primary care trusts (PCTs).
