Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at the current and future health and care needs of local populations to inform and guide the planning and commissioning (buying) of health, well-being and social care services within a local authority area.

Visit this page for further information about what the JSNA is and what it is used for in Devon: What is the JSNA?

The sections on the right contain further information from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment including community health and wellbeing profiles, topic-based information, and information about the performance of health and social care services locally.

We’ve also put together a short video explaining how to use the Community Health and Wellbeing Profiles tool.

We are currently conducting a couple of short surveys about our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) – one about the Devon overview and another about our community profile tool. Please take a few minutes to tell us how you use the JSNA, and what we can do to make it better.

A glossary explaining the technical terms used in the JSNA can be found here.
