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.

JSNA analysis includes assessment of:

  • burden of Ill-Health
  • current service provision and projected future requirements.

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.

The below links provide access to the 2018 Joint Cambridgeshire & Peterborough JSNA Core Dataset, a presentation on key themes from this dataset delivered by our Director of Public Health, Dr Liz Robin, in February 2018 and our 2017 Peterborough JSNA Core Dataset.
