Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at a wide range of information sources to identify the key health and wellbeing needs of people living in Lincolnshire. It has recently been updated following a comprehensive review. The new JSNA is available as an interactive web resource on the Lincolnshire Research Observatory. View the JSNA.

The JSNA brings together detailed information on local health and wellbeing needs and looks ahead at emerging challenges and projected future needs. It is not an end in itself, but a continuous process of assessment and planning.

The JSNA is a shared evidence base and not the sole responsibility of one organisation. It is facilitated by Lincolnshire Public Health and brings together a range of experts from partner organisations including Lincolnshire County Council, the four Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, Healthwatch Lincolnshire, NHS Providers, District Councils and representatives from the voluntary and community sector.

The 2012 Health and Social Care Act requires local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups to publish a JSNA and to use it to identify the priorities for a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The Strategy aims to inform and influence decisions about health and social care services. Responsibility for producing the JSNA and the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy rests with the Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board.
