What is a JSNA?

The JSNA is a local assessment of the current and future health, social care and wellbeing needs of the local population in Reading.

The JSNA also looks at a wider range of factors that help shape the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and local communities such as education, employment and the environment.

The JSNA uses data and evidence to highlight needs of the whole community. It is a key source of information which is used by the Health and Wellbeing Board to agree the priorities that will inform the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Why do we need a JNSA?

In 2012 the Health and Social Care Act was launched. This has given local authority and clinical commissioning groups an equal duty to prepare JSNAs and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWS), through the Health and Wellbeing Board.
