Joint Strategic Needs Assessments


Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) analyse the health needs of populations to inform and guide commissioning of health, well-being and social care services within local authority areas.

The JSNA process helps identify current and future health and wellbeing needs, leading to agreed commissioning priorities that will improve outcomes and reduce health inequalities.

Health and Wellbeing Strategy and JSNA core dataset

JSNAs contribute towards the evidence base that informs the decisions taken by our Health and Wellbeing Board to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in Peterborough. 

You can view our current Health and Wellbeing Strategy online, the strategy is informed by the 2016 Core Data Set which provides an overview summary of the current health and wellbeing of our residents. An inaugural joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough will be launched in 2020 and published on this website in due course.
