The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an assessment of the current and future health and wellbeing needs of the people of Birmingham. It helps health and care organisations plan support and services for the future, and is an an ongoing process.
It brings together a range of strategic overviews and detailed needs assessments, and is grouped into themes:
- Maternal and child health
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Long term conditions and mortality
- Health services
- Wider public health
The JSNA should not be seen as a “one off” document. It is ever growing and changing as new reports and assessments are added, which can be referenced together.
