Joint strategic needs assessment

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 requires clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities to jointly lead the preparation of Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA), through the Health and Wellbeing Board.

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, wellbeing and social care needs 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 Croydon 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.

You can view the JSNA for Croydon at the Croydon Observatory website.
