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:

    • The JSNA provides an overview of the health and wellbeing needs of the people living in Derbyshire, including the inequalities experienced across our population.
    • The JSNA provides the insight required to inform the strategic decision making and commissioning intentions of all partners across Derbyshire in order to improve population health and wellbeing.
