Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at the health and social care needs of Derbyshire’s Residents and points out areas of inequality. It helps public bodies decide what type of local services to commission. It brings together information from different sources.

Every year we publish a State of Derbyshire Report. This detailed report provides a snapshot of the current health and wellbeing of Derbyshire’s residents. We think this is an essential report because it:

    • Gives an overview of the health of people living in Derbyshire
    • Compares Derbyshire to England
    • Is updated every year
    • Helps to highlight inequalities
    • Can be used to inform services
