Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

Welcome to Derbyshire’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). This assessment helps us understand what people in Derbyshire need to be healthy and well. It looks at things like how people feel, the choices they make, where they live, and the challenges they face. By knowing all this, we can make better plans and decisions to support everyone’s health and happiness. Let’s explore the important factors that shape the well-being of our community.

Derbyshire are on a transformation journey of developing its Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). We are working with leads across health to produce a JSNA that has been developed by experts in their area, which contains the latest and relevant information. As part of this journey, we have already developed Key Topic Summaries (KTS) for several health topics. However, this is just the beginning. We are actively working to expand our coverage to include a wider range of topics, so please be aware this a work in progress and is subject to change.
