Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is the means by which Primary Care Trusts and Local Authorities describe the future health, care, and wellbeing needs of local communities.
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is intended to ensure that the needs of local people are met, both now and in the future. It provides an opportunity to look ahead at least three to five years in order to support and direct the change that needs to happen in local service systems so that services are shaped by local communities, inequalities are reduced, and social inclusion increased.
