The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an attempt to describe the ‘as is’ picture of health and wellbeing in South Gloucestershire. It will be used by the local authority, NHS and partners as an evidence base for commissioning and developing services, and by other organisations, such as the voluntary and community sector, to plan services that meet the needs of the local population.
The priorities identified from the JSNA will be used to inform the next Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of South Gloucestershire residents and reduce inequalities. The chapters of the JSNA will be refreshed on a rolling programme as new information becomes available in order to try to keep them up to date and reflective of the needs of local people.
