Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a way the local NHS, in partnership with local authorities and other public sector partners, works collaboratively to understand the current and future health and wellbeing needs of its local population and identifies future priorities.

Public Health Dorset are now co-ordinating the JSNA on behalf of the Dorset Health and Wellbeing Board and the Bournemouth and Poole Health and Wellbeing Board. The JSNA documents will be made available on the Public Health Dorset website as they are developed, working jointly with Health and Wellbeing Board partners through a Health and Wellbeing Commissioning Intelligence Group, which includes the CCG.
