What is the JSNA?

The Wokingham Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is the means by which we assess the current and future health, care and wellbeing and needs of the population in Wokingham Borough.  It is a way of highlighting the key needs of the Borough and assesses how we might best meet these needs with a range of partners.

The JSNA includes a wealth of information:

  • Starting well and Developing well - contain information relating to children
  • Ageing well - contains information about older people
  • Living well - contains information relating to working age adults
  • People and places - covers specific population groups that are not age specific and the wider determinants of health, such as transport and environment
  • Wokingham Borough profile - contains information regarding the demographics of the Borough, such as population as well as the Ward profiles

Why do we have a JSNA?
In 2012 the Health and Social Care Act was launched. This gave local authority and clinical commissioning groups an equal duty to prepare what is referred to as a JSNA. This includes a range of quantitative and qualitative evidence looking at specific groups or health issues, as well as wider issues that affect health such as crime and community safety; education; skills and planning.
