The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a blueprint for the way Gateshead Council and the local NHS identify and understand the health, well being and social care needs of people who live in Gateshead. It does this by:
- Bringing together all the relevant information around health, well being and social care needs;
- Setting out key priorities for action plans to help us meet those needs in the future; and
- Providing the basis for all the key strategies and plans produced by the Council and the local NHS to help them get the right services from the right providers.
This then allows us and other relevant service providers to:
- Be better informed and prepared to meet the needs of a changing population now and in the future;
- Work more effectively together to reduce the health inequalities between people in the better off and those in the less well off parts of Gateshead; and
- Provide value for money.
Please Note: We are in the process of updating the 2010 JSNA.
