The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) aims to provide robust evidence of health needs of our population in order to improve health and wellbeing of Enfield. It informs the way in which decisions about health, wellbeing and social care services are planned and arranged.
What is JSNA?
The JSNA is an on-going process that identifies the current and future health and wellbeing needs of the local population. This is why we are developing our JSNA as web-based resources with interactive tools and profiles. It is currently under development and new profiles will be added as they complete. Please subscribe to our mailing list if you want to receive any updates on new profiles.
Enfield JSNA is…
- Accessible – Available to wide range of audience. Provides easy to digest, meaningful information.
- Informative – Focusing on “so what?” and potential actions to address the unmet needs of Enfield community.
- Flexible – Users will be able to select data and intelligence they need.
- Consistent – Consistent approach in the way data is analysed and the information is presented, making Enfield JSNA more accessible.
What goes in it?
A range of information and intelligence are presented in order to paint a comprehensive picture of health needs in the borough. It includes information and intelligence about demography, health status and factors that influence our health and behaviours. These are presented in a form of interactive profiles. Please see our User Guide to learn how to navigate the interactive profiles.
JSNA can also be informed by more detailed health needs assessments on specific topics.
Why do we have it?
The Enfield JSNA identifies the needs of the population and enables effective targeting of intervention. This informs how the Council and NHS should design and provide services to improve population’s health, while reducing inequality. The JSNA also underpins our Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
Each Health and Wellbeing Board has a duty to prepare the JSNA.
