Joint Strategic Needs Assessments are described as a systematic method for reviewing the health and well-being needs of a population to identify 'the big picture' of the health and wellbeing needs and inequalities of that population. The JSNA guidance is supported by a core data set which includes key needs and service requirements. The JSNA pulls together a wide range of information about the current and future health and well-being needs of the local population.
During 2010 the JSNA was revised by Hampshire County Council and Hampshire PCT. While providing an update on the current and future health and wellbeing needs identified of the Hampshire population, it is not intended to provide a comprehensive assessment of the needs for every service area. The 2010 JSNA Refresh document including individual sections and chapters can be accessed below.
