Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an assessment of the current and future health and social care needs of the local community. The JSNA informs the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) which is a strategy for meeting the needs identified in the JSNA. These are needs that could be met by the local authority, Clinical Commissioning Groups or NHS England.

This refreshed JSNA follows a ‘life course approach’ which recognises that the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age can lead to health inequalities. Chapters are more concise and include a more visual way to look at the data which allows users to explore it in detail by selecting geographies or indicators of interest.

The JSNA is a continuous process and is updated as additional information becomes available, as gaps are identified and in response to feedback received.

Our Surrey information and advice strategy provides the right information and advice about care and support at the right time and in the right place is a key part of our approach in Surrey.
