Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
About the JSNA
The purpose of Liverpool’s JSNA is to identify the key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future, and forms the basis of all commissioning plans across health, social care, public health, and children’s services. This ongoing process includes reviewing a wide range of information and data, as well as service user and community views.
The JSNA provides a basis for the development of a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which is aimed at addressing the city’s key health and wellbeing needs, and also provides a reference point for all those working to improve health and reduce inequalities. The JSNA is the responsibility of Liverpool’s Health and Wellbeing Board.
The topic areas provide further information on the health needs of our populations. There is some overlap between the topics. For instance the neighbourhood profiles in the our city section contain information that is relevant across all themes.
The JSNA is an ongoing process. If you have any comments on the information available, or would like to work with us to develop these or other reports further please contact us.
